MARSEILLE, France — Wyplay, a global TV Professional Services and Video Platform Solutions provider, is powering SKY Connect, the latest 4K Android TV DVR, which has just been launched by SKY Brasil.

It provides a wide set of features: live satellite TV, pay-per-view, push and broadband VOD. Its 4K Ultra HD resolution provides an unmatched viewing experience. Subscribers will be able to enjoy their favorite content in HQ at any time with DVR and OTT streaming services such as Netflix or SKY Brasil’s proprietary VOD platform. They will also be able to use farfield voice control through the SKY Connect Android TV environment.

By leveraging the work done for the launch of Linux STBs for SKY Brasil and DIRECTV Latin America in 2016, Wyplay managed to meet Vrio’s expectations. Wyplay also provided the SKY Brazil technical engineering team with the Android TV software stack, STB integration services, validation services and support to STB program management. In addition, the LATAM operator can now use FAMS, the Wyplay analytics solution, to study event reporting analytics (zap, stand-by, VOD, etc.).

We are proud to have been selected once again by Vrio to work on this project for the new SKY Brasil Android TV STB. Wyplay is now a long-term partner of trust for Vrio and will continue to provide valuable services throughout the years.” said Jacques Bourgninaud, CEO of Wyplay.

As part of the project, Wyplay will develop new features on the operator’s existing STBs. From now on, Wyplay will also provide on-going annual software maintenance as well as support for Android OS and APK updates on SKY Connect.

SKY Connect will offer an integrated digital home experience for our customers. The device provides a hub for all things entertainment with access to the latest applications, adding value to the Pay-TV experience and offering innovative platforms and assets, such as the connection with Google Assistant, which allows the customers to chance channel or volume, for example, using far field microphones. It is a great innovation for the Brazilian Pay-TV market that enables clients to explore new contents and assets”, Andre Ribeiro, Marketing Vice-President of SKY Brasil.
