September 11, 2017

Conax, a Kudelski Group company and speciaist in total content and service protection for digital entertainment services, has announced the launch of Conax Lynx, a TEE-based solution and Conax Prime Access, a cardless security client designed for hybrid set-top-boxes.

Conax Lynx enables strong isolation on hybrid set-top-boxes, reduced integration effort for middleware partners and access to premium 4K/UHD content for operators. Lynx complements Conax Smart Card and Cardless security clients, enabling value-added features in advanced middleware solutions. Conax Prime Access, the latest addition to the Conax content security clients, will help pay-TV operators boost ARPU and secure their content based on the ECP specifications recommended by MovieLabs. Prime Access is pre-integrated with Lynx, using a security architecture that allows pay-TV operators to easily integrate their own or third party OTT services on the same set top box. With Prime Access, operators can reduce churn by delivering their own OTT services and enhance user experience on the same advanced set-top-box.

Tom Jahr, EVP Products & Partners, Conax, “In a world of continuously evolving consumer preferences, operators are looking to step up their offerings. They want access to premium, early release window content along with access to advanced set-top-box devices to deliver this value securely. Conax is proud to launch its next generation security clients & solutions, which will enable customers to drive up their ARPU, reduce churn in their operations and achieve higher end-user satisfaction through advanced set-top-box propositions.”
