AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS: Wyplay, creator of software solutions for leading pay-TV operators, and Sigma Designs, a leading provider of System-on-Chip (SoC) solutions for home entertainment, control, connectivity and converging multimedia delivery, lifted the veil on the turnkey integration of the open-source Frog by Wyplay set-top-box middleware with Sigma's HEVC 4k-capable SMP875x family of system-on-chip ARM processors.
As part of this effort, Sigma Designs is contributing the source code for the porting of Wyplay's middleware on the SMP8756 chipset and will distribute associated development boards to its customers and partners with the Frog Reference Implementation pre-loaded in binary.
In parallel, Wyplay will use Sigma's reference design as its next reference hardware and will make the source code available to all Frog licensees via the Frog Community Portal.
The Frog Community gathers today a growing ecosystem of more than 60 licensee companies sharing the same code base. Such companies include chipset vendors, TV operators, devices OEMs, independent software vendors and system integrators.
