MARSEILLE, France / SHENZHEN, China — Wyplay, creator of software solutions for leading pay-TV operators, and Shenzhen Jiuzhou Electric Co. Ltd. (Jiuzhou), a leading Chinese Set-Top Box manufacturer, today announced their collaboration on the Frog Turnkey solution.

“The Frog Turnkey solution has an aggressive pricing that matches our go-to-market constraints in emerging countries” said Huang Wei, EVP Sales and Marketing at Jiuzhou. “In addition, Wyplay brings its Tier-1 software expertise that complements Jiuzhou’s. Frog offers us a great opportunity to differentiate our devices and creates upsell opportunities with Wyplay’s Frog Backend components integrated end-to-end.”

In the context of this collaboration, Wyplay provides the Frog Turnkey solution pre-integrated on Jiuzhou devices while Jiuzhou promotes it towards pay TV operators and handles the customization to their requirements, targeting key growth markets in Latin America, Asia-Pacific and Africa.
