Amsterdam – September 9, 2016 – HiSilicon, a worldwide leading semiconductor company providing silicon solutions in digital home, communications and wireless terminals, Wyplay, creator of software solutions for pay TV operators and MathEmbedded, a Frog Services Company, today announced a collaboration for the porting of Frog by Wyplay onto the HiSilicon’s range of System-on-Chips (SoC’s) for Set-Top boxes for DVB, IPTV and OTT markets.

“Frog by Wyplay’s availability on our Hi3798/Hi3796 series of chipsets will bring our STB customers proven and deployed off-the-shelves turnkey solutions, to which they will be able to customize and add features according to their needs”, says John Liu, General Manager of STB Chipsets at HiSilicon. “With more than 25 years of experience in semiconductor, we are focused on the sustainable growth of operators in the Pay-TV market, with cost efficient solutions and more value-added services. We are committed to protecting the investment of operators and partners. This move is yet another example of our pro-active attitude”.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with HiSilicon who are currently extending their significant Asian penetration to worldwide markets” said Dominique Feral, Wyplay CMO. “Thanks to MathEmbedded, a long standing Frog Scaling Partner, operators and OEMs will be able to deliver a dramatically enhanced user experience, with a choice of features à-la-carte”.

"We are very pleased to port Frog by Wyplay onto the HiSilicon platform" said Andy Sturges, Director of Products at MathEmbedded. He added "We are eager to use all the power and capabilities of the latest HiSilison chipsets with Frog By Wyplay to deliver an unmatched solution to the Pay-TV market”.

Hi3798/Hi3796 series of chipsets includes Hi3798M V100, Hi3796M V100, and Hi3798C V200. It provides solutions for entry-level through high-end UHD HEVC STB. It features an advanced security engine integrating a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE), a Secure Video-Path (SVP), and forensic watermarking technologies. All security requirements are fulfilled to protect the system both in static and running modes. The security engine protects the power on and boot processes, the OS kernel loading, the middleware launching, and the app/UI execution.

Thanks to HiSilicon’s unified UNF API, Frog by Wyplay’s solutions will also be available on the rest of the range, including the cost effective Hi3716 series that brings Full HD video to its best, together with traditional CAS technologies.
