Verimatrix joins Frog by Wyplay to Integrate with New Frog Turnkey Broadcast/IP Bundle

SAN DIEGO, USA and MARSEILLE, France –– Wyplay, creator of software solutions for pay TV operators, today announced that Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, has joined the Frog by Wyplay community and that the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS™) will be part of the new Frog Turnkey Broadcast/IP bundle on set top box (STB) devices for digital TV operators in growth markets.

The two companies already share a track record of successful integrations between Wyplay’s pay-TV STB middleware and VCAS revenue security platform with common operator customers like Belgacom’s Proximus TV in Belgium and SFR in France. Building on this strong legacy, Wyplay and Verimatrix intend to integrate further their respective products under the umbrella of the Frog by Wyplay initiative so that other members of the Frog Community can leverage the VCAS revenue security platform along with Wyplay’s open source middleware architecture in a turnkey fashion. Such integration will accelerate the speed to market for operators, integrators and STB vendors.

“The integration of revenue security solutions into set-top-box software requires very specific expertise, which Wyplay brings to the table,” said Steve Christian, Verimatrix Senior Vice President of Marketing. “Our integration into Frog will bring shorter time to market for pay-TV operators without locking them into proprietary solutions.”

“We heartily welcome Verimatrix to the Frog Community,” said Dominique Féral, Wyplay CMO. “They are the undisputed leaders in broadcast and OTT content security and we want to strengthen our long standing realationship by ensuring that VCAS integrates with Frog out of the box”.

Frog by Wyplay is the first independent open source software solution for pay-TV operators. The initiative brings together a growing ecosystem of more than 90 companies across the entire digital TV technology value chain including chipset vendors, device manufacturers, independent software vendors, software development and integration services providers and operators. This comprehensive solution includes access to the complete Frog source code and all the supporting components to build TV operator’s products.
