Taipei – July 6th, 2018 – ALi Corporation, a leading Set-Top Box (STB) chipset provider, and Skardin, a leading STB manufacturing company, today announced that they have reached record-high shipment of NAGRA NOCS (Nagra-on-chip Security) – certified secure STBs to South American operators in 2018. This milestone symbolizes the joint effort and commitment to meeting today’s Pay TV security standard as well as the strong dedication in this regional market.

 

ALi Corporation has established long-term cooperation with NAGRA, a Kudelski Group company and the world’s leading independent provider of content protection and multiscreen television, since its secure chipset first received NAGRA NOCS certification dated back in 2013. Integrated with the NOCS3, ALi’s STB chipsets have been recognized for the advanced security needed for today’s Pay TV industry. With well-recognized level of security, ALi and Skardin are able to meet the security standard required by 1st tier operators.

 

South America is currently a rapid-growing market. For example, by Q1 2018, the Pay TV in the Andean region records an annual growth of 5.5%. In addition, there are 1.78 million of Pay TV households in the western region of South America by records in March, 2018.

 

“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.

Taipei, Taiwan and Lausanne, Switzerland – June 26th, 2018 ALi Corporation, a leading innovator and developer of Set-Top Box (STB) chipsets and iWedia, a leading provider of software solutions for TV devices to service operators and Consumer Electronics manufacturers, today announced that they have joined forces to provide a common offering for hybrid DVB+OTT STB.

 

The offer is made of iWedia’s Teatro-3.0 software solution for Linux-based hybrid STB ported on ALi’s M3527 and M3727 STB chipsets.

 

The announcement was made to coincide with the opening of CommunicAsia / BroadcastAsia 2018, which is held in Singapore from Tuesday, June 26th through to Thursday, June 28th. Both ALi and iWedia exhibit at the show where the integrated solution will be demonstrated.

 

ALi’s M3527 (resp. M3727) is a cost-effective HD HEVC DVB-S2 (resp. DVB-C) SoC with advanced security. It supports high performance RISC CPU, 2D vector graphic engine, DDR3, Ethernet, HDMI, USB and HD multi-format video decoder. Its advanced security engine has got the latest certifications of major CAS vendors. Whatever the chipset and the OS, the SDK exposes the same APIs (called AUI – ALi Unified Interface) which accelerates the porting of third-parties software solutions.

 

ALi’s M3727 was selected as the chipset platform for this co-development project with iWedia. The robust, feature-rich M3727 provides a secure environment for the deployment of iWedia software component and turnkey solutions. Besides hardware architecture, ALi AUI (Application Unified Interface) plays a significant role for the interoperability with APIs (Application Programming Interface) from iWedia software solutions, which also accelerates the deployment and development process with Android and Linux RTOS.

 

iWedia’s Teatro-3.0 is a software solution for Linux-based hybrid (DVB+OTT) STB. It features an easy to customize User Interface / resident app developed using regular Web technologies (HTML5, CSS, DOM, JavaScript). The solution includes a web browser optimized for embedded systems, a full-blown DVB stack as well as client software for HLS and DASH. Support to HbbTV 2 is proposed as an option.

 

Teatro-3.0 is pre-integrated with the main Conditional Access Systems to secure broadcast content and with the main DRM systems to secure OTT content.

 

“With Teatro-3.0 Pay TV operators can deliver a mix of broadcast and OTT video services on the main screen using their own branded UI”, said Sunghoon Kim, VP Sales at iWedia. “The M3527 and M3727 SoC from ALi allow for a very optimized STB BOM and they thus efficiently target the first segment of the hybrid STB market – also known as connected zappers – for which massive deployments are foreseen e.g., in LATAM and APAC”, he added.

 

“Our M3527 and M3727 chipsets are ideally fitted for the hybrid STB markets as they support the smooth and secure delivery of broadcast and OTT content,” said Willis Chang, Vice President of ALi Corporation. “With this integration with Teatro-3.0, we enable our customers, the STB ODM, to bring a better Time-To-Market to Pay TV operators. Moreover, they can leverage iWedia’s STB software integration services capabilities”, he added.
