Ekioh joins Frog by Wyplay increasing operators’ choice of browser to support high value HTML5 OTT applications.

Wyplay today welcomes Ekioh as new Licensee, joining more than 125 companies in the Frog by Wyplay Community. Ekioh is specialising in enhanced browser provision for TV and embedded devices, and brings its expertise and product offering to the Frog by Wyplay community in order to offer more choice beyond Frog’s built-in Qt-based Webkit browser for operators wanting to add high value HTML5 applications to their Frog deployments.

Many device manufacturers within the Frog Community already rely upon Ekioh for enhanced HTML5 support within their product lines, providing an excellent foundation for further integration. Ekioh’s TV Browser is extremely efficient in its processing use and has a very compact footprint making it an ideal choice for providing enhanced HTML5 support on both 2D and 3D hardware. The company also has a great track record in helping device manufacturers to secure YouTube™ certification.

The initiative brings together a growing ecosystem of more than 125 companies across the entire digital TV technology value chain including chipset vendors, device manufacturers, independent software vendors, software development and integration services providers and operators.
