Entropic, an expert in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, has completed the integration of the Conax conditional access core module into its advanced line of multimedia STB system-on-a-chip (SoC) products. By incorporating the Conax technology into its SoCs, Entropic can help prevent the illegal redistribution of premium operator content.
Entropic’s ARM-based advanced STB SoC solutions are designed for hybrid broadcast/IP Pay-TV networks to provide security, integration, features, and ecosystem support required by global pay-TV operators. By embedding the Conax conditional access core into its silicon hardware, Entropic adds an additional layer of content security for the protection of satellite, cable, terrestrial, IP and OTT video networks.
“We believe the most effective mechanism for securing operator revenue while maintaining subscriber convenience is using state of the art Conax smart card technology paired with advanced chipsets, like those from Entropic, to ensure smart cards can be used only with secure devices,” said Hans Kwaaitaal, VP Strategic Partner Relations, Conax. “In working with Entropic, we are able to offer today’s global operators new DVB set-top box security solutions that will prevent the illegal viewing of their premium content.”
