Wyplay powers the latest 4K Android IPTV STB Introduced by Proximus

MARSEILLE, France — Proximus, Belgium’s leading “quad-play” Telco operator, has just introduced its newest V6 Set-Top Box (STB) with Wyplay’s latest generation Android software, the global leader in software solutions and services for TV operators.

“We are proud to have been at the center of this new Android 4K IPTV STB deployment” said Jacques Bourgninaud, CEO of Wyplay. He added “Our Frog by Wyplay Middleware is delivered to the most demanding Tier1 operators and can be deployed on any Linux or Android STB”.

Wyplay enabled Proximus to successfully transition from Linux based STB to Android with a complete software solution and integration services. On this project, Wyplay provides key components such as the IPTV player, notably integrated with advanced CAS using TEE/SVP, the Digital Video Recorder stack and the custom user interface with Wyplay’s graphic engine. Wyplay worked closely with Huawei STB teams on the software integration services, in particular on the Android standby management to comply with STB low power requirements and on the TR069 integration.

The Android V6 IPTV STB has been in field test since early 2018 and the commercial deployment started recently. This new Android STB provides advanced features such as:

  • Applications including Netflix, YouTube, BeTV, Radioline…
  • Enhanced video quality with the support of 4K HDR resolution,
  • Picture-in-Picture of live TV.

Prior to the 4K Android IPTV STB, Wyplay powered four generations of Proximus’s Linux based STBs, from upgrading legacy installed base of HD PVR (V3 and V4) to deploying new Full HD PVR and zapper (V5 and V5 mini) supporting Netflix, reverse EPG, fast zapping and nPVR.
