ALi Corporation, an STB chipset provider, and Skardin, an STB manufacturing company, have reached record-high shipment of Nagra NOCS (Nagra-on-chip Security) – certified secure STBs to South American operators in 2018.
ALi Corporation has established long-term cooperation with Nagra, a Kudelski Group company and independent provider of content protection and multiscreen television, since its secure chipset first received Nagra NOCS certification dated back in 2013.
“ALi has a long-established history working with Nagra and Skardin. First, we meet the NAGRA NOCS3 security standard in order to offer operators the confidence and security in the deployment of our STB chipsets”, said Willis Chang, Vice President of ALi Corporation. “Secondly, Skardin has always been a reliable partner in the ODM manufacturing of STB and software support. Thus, this shipment milestone to 1st tier South American operators means significantly to our joint effort and dedication in Pay TV industry”.
“The joint effort of our ODM capability and the NOCS-certified STB SoCs from ALi is critical in this milestone. Skardin has proven records in STB manufacturing and development of value-added software. In fact, we are the first in the production with ALi and Nagra NOCS3 to meet the pay-TV demands for South American operators”, said Alessandro Bassi, CMO of Skardin.
