October 8, 2012

Aston, the digital TV veteran, is leading in integrating HbbTV technology. Its new platform is based on MStar’s K2 secure chipset and integrates Viaccess-Orca’s latest technology: ACS 5.0.

Presented in a DVB-S2 single tuner version, this platform allows use of the new services and HbbTV content offered by an increasing number of operators all over Europe, both in broadcast and broadband mode. Operators who have been able to test it on a preview particularly appreciated its fluidity and reactivity in use. Based on MStar’s K2 processor, it enables HbbTV functionalities integration under optimal economic conditions. Lastly, it is the first platform with Viaccess-Orca version ACS 5.0 embedded and, by the end of the year, will come in a Conax CAS 7 version.

This platform integrates PVR functionalities developed and tested by Aston and will be available in a twin-tuner version with a multi-room streaming option in secure mode, thereby enabling the user to take full advantage of the technology developed by Aston.
