ST makes set-top box silicon more secure from piracy
STMicroelectronics has announced that its “Liege” set-top box chipsets have received security certification from Conax, a supplier of conditional access solutions for digital TV.
Conax’s Contego content protection platform supports multiple TVs and devices in homes equipped with ST silicon.
The security certification is designed to prevent piracy and illicit media-sharing websites.
“Connected television is bringing today’s best Internet and multimedia experiences into the living room but content providers need to trust the ecosystem,” said Laurent Remont, Digital Convergence Group Vice President and General Manager of ST’s Unified Platform Division.
“By working with experts such as Conax, we ensure that our technology is aligned with the way the world is going: any content, on any device, in any place.”
“The combination of Conax’s security and ST’s set-top box platform opens the door to a secure multimedia experience across broadcast, broadband or Over-The-Top services,” said Hans Kwaaitaal, v-p partner strategy, Conax.
ST’s Liege set-top box chipsets are manufactured in 40nm process technology.
