Conax, part of the Kudelski Group and a provider of complete video content and service protection, is in the final stages of establishing a Conax test centre in Beijing. The facility will provide authorised Pre-Testing and Conformity Testing services certifying client device conformance for Conax content protection functionality requirements.
Conax works closely with a wide range of STB partners and other device manufacturers to ensure Conax enabled client devices are developed according to its strict requirements for functionality and security. The new test hub extends the security provider’s current offering for 3rd party test facilities in Europe and India and aims to offer cost efficient access for set-top box manufacturers and partners in Asia Pacific.
“During the last 2 years, Conax has security integrated close to 200 STB models, confirms Erik Abrahamsen, acting EVP Services, Conax. While a very high percentage of the manufacturers are based in Asia, we are pleased to introduce a regional offering for our partners. Establishing a test centre closer to our STB partners will provide flexibility and reduced costs for STB projects, benefiting both our partners and our customers – leading pay-TV operators across the globe.”
The Conax testing facility in Beijing will be available from early May 2015.
