• ALi Corporation integrates Conax robust cardless security client into HEVC series system on chip (SoC) family, expanding operator STB offering
• Aimed at emerging markets India, LatAm, APAC and Africa, the ALi HEVC family includes SoCs for Satellite, Cable and IPTV decoders
• Chipset offering Implements leading security technologies including hardware root-of-trust and Trusted Execution Environment (TEE); enables multi-layer security architecture and cost efficient platform

 

IBC Expo, Amsterdam - September 08, 2016 - ALi Corporation, a leading Set-Top Box (STB) chipset provider, today announced that it has further extended its partnership with security partner Conax, a leader in total content and service protection for digital entertainment services. As the first chipset provider receiving Conax CP 6.0 certification for cardless, ALi has integrated its HEVC series system on chip (SoC) with the Conax robust cardless security client, enabling a new generation of comprehensive and secure cardless set-top-boxes. The unique capabilities of Conax Cardless technology is now embedded deeply into the leading ALi HEVC series SoCs, utilizing advanced security features such as Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) and hardware root-of-trust to enable a multi-layered security architecture, providing a highly secure and cost efficient platform for cardless STBs for Conax customers.

The HEVC series of chipsets is a highly complementary addition to ALi’s portfolio of over 61 Conax security-evaluated chipsets, providing an attractive bouquet of secure clients to meet growing operator and platform requirements. The primary aim of the HEVC series is to serve the emerging markets such as India, LATAM, APAC and Africa, where bandwidth efficiency is a key operational factor.

Conax Cardless is fully integrated with the Conax Contego security back-end, providing pay-TV operators key benefits in terms of an advanced, unified security hub where operators can seamlessly utilize a mix of Smart Cards and Cardless clients to meet their specific platform needs. This enables easy differentiation between security demands for various types of content and consumption patterns, based on varying content owner requirements and business models. This is a key benefit compared to other security solutions which may require deployment of separate back-ends, incurring extensive additional cost.

"Close cooperation with best of breed technology partners fosters the flexible and future proof solutions needed by operators for enabling tomorrow’s end-viewer content consumption. This newest integration with market-leading technology from security partner Conax further builds on our long-standing relationship aimed at providing a value-added portfolio of flexible, cost-efficient solutions for pay-TV operators operating in diversified markets around the globe," said Daniel Huang, CEO, ALi Corporation.

"For a highly robust integrated approach to STB security, the ALi - Conax Cardless chipset integration combines secure software with the ability to execute within dedicated security hardware,” says Morten Solbakken, President and CEO, Conax. “To enable highly efficient and rapid STB integration, ALi offers a comprehensive reference design where Conax’ Cardless content protection core is pre-embedded - reducing costs for operators. Through the new chipset family, we are enabling both additional choices for operators deploying cardless STBS and the possibility to explore new ways of growing market share."

• Partnership facilitates the broader delivery of a seamless next generation personal TV experience across a full range of video enabled devices
• graphyne2 platform pre-integration with newest ALi system-on-chip technology enables quick, simple, risk-free delivery of powerful new set-top-box multiscreen features
• ODM’s and operators benefit from certified interoperability and performance optimisation through joint engineering efforts



Geneva, Switzerland, Taipei, Taiwan – 06 September 2016 – ADB, a leading provider of solutions and services for media convergence, has announced an extension of its strategic partnership with set-top-box (STB) chipset provider ALi that will enable more makers of TV equipment such as STBs to deploy the advanced features of ADB’s new graphyne2 next-generation personal TV software platform.

 

ALi will incorporate graphyne2 technology into its newest HEVC system-on-chip (SoC) family. The pre-integration cooperation will allow original device manufacturers (ODMs) using ALi chipsets to utilise graphyne2’s cutting-edge features quickly and consistently. The result will be enhanced performance through ALi chipsets, allowing ODMs to more easily support efforts by pay-TV operators to provide a seamless user experience across smartphones, tablets, PCs, smart TVs, STBs and other devices.

 

The live introduction of graphyne2, including demonstrations of its Multiscreen UX optimised user interface, second screen app and other features, will be at IBC in Amsterdam 8-12 September at the ADB Booth (5.B60). Visitors to IBC will also be able to see first-hand how ODMs and operators can benefit from state-of-the-art chip technology at the ALi Suite (BM 19 & 20, 2F, Hall 1).

 

Wojciech Doganowski, Vice President Product Marketing, Personal TV at ADB, comments: “Within our ecosystems of ConnectedOS partners, the extension of our relationship with ALi provides a proven and effective way of delivering STB’s that offer industry leading personalisation features along with seamless compatibility for added value elements, including a back-end provisioning platform and extended functions such as direct marketing messaging and audience tracking.”

 

“Through this agreement and our wider partner programme, we give pay TV operators the widest possible choice of solutions and flexibility without compromising on reliability or future upgradability,” he adds.

 

The joint solution with ADB supports full HD1080P60, MVC video decoding and multi-stream, as well as features such as USB media, VOD and YouTube.

 

“The extension of our partnership with ADB offers tremendous advantages for our system development clients and TV operators,” Tony Chang, Chief Operating Officer, ALi Corporation, says. “Integrating the graphyne2 personal TV solution into ALi’s high-performing chipset will enable operators to bring innovative TV experiences to viewers everywhere while offering operators new tools to unlock value added services and operating models.”

 

In meeting consumer demand for cutting-edge STB’s and other media streaming devices that deliver high quality content through a consistent set of features, pay-TV operators are keen to reduce the cost and the complexity of managing a diverse set of customer premise equipment. At the same time, they still need a common platform that enables the rapid delivery of new services and facilitates the introduction of new revenue drivers.

 

Peter Balchin, Chief Executive Officer of ADB, notes: “The continuation and evolution of our partnership with ALi provides our clients, both ODM and pay-TV operators, more flexibility over the customer premise equipment they require to deliver the best services – while balancing features and cost. Closer relationships between chipset providers and the software ecosystem is essential to ensure that the next generation of pay-TV and OTT services are able to deliver against the expectations of consumers in a highly competitive market.”

 

The graphyne2 platform has been built on 20 years of continuous technology development for cable, satellite, IPTV and OTT service providers. The new platform delivers a cloud-optimised solution for next-generation pay-TV and OTT. It builds upon, and is backwards-compatible with ADB’s award winning Carbo and GraphyneTV UX, as well as ADB’s UniphyneTV middleware.
