Dish TV selects Wyplay’s turnkey solution for next-gen platforms

MUMBAI: Direct-to-home (DTH) company Dish TV has selected Wyplay, creator of software solutions for pay TV operators, to provide its Frog Turnkey Middleware and associated class-leading value-added services on their STBs.

The concept has created some excitement among operators, who are struggling for freedom from the monopolistic construct of pay TV space.

The future solution will be built from top partners products, keeping in mind flexibility, openness and the possibility to evolve without constraints and any E2E lock.

Speaking on the occasion, Dish TV COO VK Gupta said, “Being the pioneer and market leader, Dish TV selects Wyplay as our future middleware partner. Wyplay enables Dish TV in delivering class-leading value-added services on both one-way and connected STBs with their expertise, innovative technologies and a holistic approach to customer engagement that is fully in line with Dish TV’s driving purpose to provide ‘service with a passion’. This is an ultimate move made towards ensuring customer engagement and satisfaction.”

Recognised as a global leader in innovative software solutions for TV operators, Wyplay brings its expertise to the table, in particular through:

§ The integration of its browser-based middleware on new generation set-top boxes

§ The customization of its HTML5 user interface

§ Execution excellence to deliver an easy-to-use and smooth user experience

§ Improved overall performance in terms of flexibility, fluidity, speed and responsiveness

Wyplay CEO Jacques Bourgninaud said, “We are thrilled to partner Dish TV, Asia’s largest DTH company, in delivering a brand-new customer experience to its subscribers. After several months of assessment and preparation, we are now confident that all conditions needed for a successful international expansion of Frog Turnkey solution are in place, especially in terms of collaboration with STB manufacturers supporting our solution. We are now in the home stretch before the deployment of our offering, and excited about prospective for development in this new unique market.”

Beyond European and Latin America markets, Wyplay confirms its strategy of expansion with its Frog Turnkey solution. Launched last September, Frog Turnkey solution incorporates all features required for traditional linear broadcast TV consumption, on-demand content, applications distributed over the internet, backend components and a modern user experience. Frog Turnkey aims to bring an attractive digital TV experience to subscribers with an affordable business model and fast deployment model for operators.

With Frog Turnkey solution, Dish TV’s customers will have access to a complete end-to-end offering from back-end broadcast services to an advanced client managing live TV, record, push VoD and interactive applications.
