STMicroelectronics: STMicroelectronics Bundles Wyplay's Frog Turnkey Pay TV Software Solution for Free with Liege3 Set-Top-Box SoCs

Pre-integrated Connected Zapper or PVR features available to OEM members of
the Frog Community

Marseille, France, and Geneva, Switzerland - September 10, 2015
- Wyplay, creator of software solutions for pay TV operators, and
STMicroelectronics (NYSE: STM), a global semiconductor leader serving
customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, today announced
that the Frog Client turnkey solution for connected zappers or personal video
recorders (PVR) will be offered free of charge to OEM members of the Frog
Community designing their digital TV set-top-box products with ST's newLiege3
System-on-Chip (SoC) family. This bundled offer may be extended to other ST
product families in the future.

As a result of the long-standing strategic relationship between Wyplay and ST,
the Frog Client turnkey product has been pre-integrated with ST's SDK2 Media
Framework low-level software environment for the Liege3 family of SoC
products. Both companies will showcase this integration at IBC, RAI
Amsterdam, 11-15 September, on their respective booths (Wyplay: 5.A25 - ST:
1.F40).

Unveiled at IBC 2015, Liege3 is the ST SoC family for HD HEVC (High Efficiency
Video Coding) entry set-top boxes composed of satellite variants
(STiH337/STiH332), cable-market products (STiH372), and IPTV set-top-box
devices (STiH302/STiH307). Pin-to-pin compatible and highly scalable, these
SoCs integrate ST's latest IPs and FD-SOI manufacturing process to achieve
outstanding multimedia performance and high power efficiency that supports
very small fan-less form factors, at price-points that enable large-scale
migrations towards HEVC.

The Frog Client turnkey product was announced in June this year at Broadcast
Asia. It reuses and extends the core components available in Frog to pack all
the features for traditional linear broadcast TV consumption and on-demand
content served over the Internet into an integrated software stack with a
modern user experience developed using HTML5 technologies. The Connected
Zapper and PVR features of this product are now available free of charge for
commercial deployments by ST customers that are members of the Frog
Community.

This offer aims to bring significant time-to-market and software BoM
advantages to set-top-box OEMs that rely on STMicroelectronics' silicon. In
effect, the pre-integrated bundle brings down the time required for an OEM to
deliver an operator product to three months and is available from day one of
introduction of the new SoC line. This makes the bundle particularly
attractive to OEMs addressing growth markets in which operators face
significant pressure to introduce modern user experiences and value-added
services such as Video-on-Demand or Over-The-Top services, in addition to
their analog-to-digital migration plans.

"The Frog Client turnkey software fits perfectly with our Liege3 SoC family,"
said Philippe Notton, Group Vice President and General Manager, Consumer
Product Division, STMicroelectronics. "Wyplay's Frog provides all-in-one
ready-to-ship middleware with user interface stack, and allows us to harness
the richness of the Frog Community that already counts more than 20
set-top-box OEMs."

"ST's new Liege3 SoC family meets the needs of OEMs to address all the
segments of the very dynamic HD HEVC set-top-box broadcast markets," said
Jacques Bourgninaud, Wyplay CEO. "The ST/Wyplay bundle takes the pain out of
the equation for OEMs to quickly deploy competitive products offering modern
user experience."

The pre-integrated Frog Client will be available to Frog Licensee OEMs as a
Frog Reference implementation for STiH337/STiH332 (satellite),
STiH307/STiH302 (IPTV), and STiH372 (cable). Source code and pre-built
binaries will be distributed to all Frog Licensees through theFrog Community
Portal(login required).
