    Wyplay, which provides the Frog by Wyplay open source middleware, has integrated V-Nova’s PERSEUS video compression technology into the existing set-top-box platform of a Tier 1 European TV operator, which had been upgraded to run Frog Client middleware by Wyplay. “This achievement demonstrates the time-to-market advantage for the introduction of new technologies afforded by the open innovation approach advocated by both companies,” Wyplay says.

    The integration of PERSEUS was helped by the open source nature of Wyplay’s Frog Client.  Leveraging the full source code and documentation available to all Frog Licensees, the two teams were able to integrate PERSEUS video playback support into an existing Frog-powered set-top-box without the involvement of the chipset vendor or the hardware manufacturer, Wyplay reports.

    “We are very pleased with the seamless level of integration that was achieved for our PERSEUS compression technology into the STB ecosystem of this major European TV operator,” comments Guido Meardi, CEO & Co-Founder, V-Nova. “It’s gratifying to anticipate the improvement to the end-user experience made possible by the fast deployment of our technology with Wyplay’s Frog Client middleware. The adaptable nature of PERSEUS with existing infrastructures is proven by the full integration into the operator’s STB stack that was achieved in a matter of weeks.”
    
    Jacques Bourgninaud, CEO at Wyplay says: “V-Nova’s PERSEUS technology has the potential to revolutionize TV service delivery on all devices. We are delighted to have this ground-breaking technology intrinsically integrated with our open source Frog Client Middleware. The seamless way in which V-Nova was able to integrate PERSEUS proves its compatibility with the wider TV ecosystem, and will enable faster time-to-market deployments for operators and system integrators.”
