Broadcom, a global player in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, has announced it is the industry’s first to receive NAGRA NOCS3 certification for HEVC and Ultra HD STB systems-on-a-chip. The security architecture supports the latest in content protection, ensuring the delivery of premium content and services to multiple TVs and devices in the home.

Broadcom has achieved NAGRA’s next-generation security certification on several chips in its HEVC-enabled device portfolio, including the flagship BCM7445 home gateway device, the BCM7366 direct broadcast satellite integrated receiver, and the BCM7252S device. With NAGRA NOCS3 support, Broadcom’s STB platforms offer service providers a multi-CA or DRM environment that enables the delivery of secure premium content and services to multiple screens in the home. Integration of NOCS3 also allows operators to move security constraints from the device to the chipset, reducing the cost and complexity of developing secure STBs.

“Broadcom first led the Ultra HD market with innovative designs that deliver the 4K experience to viewers worldwide,” said Dan Marotta, Broadcom Executive Vice President and General Manager, Broadband & Connectivity Group. “As the first silicon vendor to receive NOCS3 security certification for our portfolio of HEVC-enabled chipsets, Broadcom will continue to work with NAGRA to provide the most advanced level of content protection for the delivery of Ultra HD content.”

“NAGRA NOCS3 technology supports our entire range of NAGRA anyCAST CAS and DRM solutions, from our secure embedded client to our connected CAS/DRM client, anyCAST CONNECT,” added Maurice van Riek, NAGRA Senior Vice President, Content and Asset Security.  “Broadcom’s implementation of NOCS3 will ensure the highest level of security to customers through strict compliance with emerging Ultra HD security requirements.”
