Telechips, and Sansa Security have announced a partnership that enables digital rights management (DRM) for Telechips’ new Hexa-based TCC896x chipset. The partnership, announced at CES, enables Telechips to provide a trusted execution environment (TEE) that complies with Hollywood studio standards.
The TCC896x chipset is a high-performance 3D accelerator and video processor that will be integrated into Telechips’ TCC896x Smart Stick. The Smart Stick will initially be incorporated into carrier and service provider set-top boxes and, over time, the technology is expected to migrate into additional over-the-top (OTT) set-top-box solutions that require protected content delivery.
“Our TCC896x chipset was designed for over-the-top TV, video on demand (VoD) and mobile content services, device manufacturers and service providers that require content protection that is studio-approved, yet flexible enough to support multiple business models and new use cases,” said Andrew Lee, director of marketing for Telechips, Inc. “Sansa Security’s trustlet-based DRM technology helps to meet those requirements, and its reference designs ensure R & D cost savings and a fast time to market.”
