SDMC, NAGRA and Amlogic collaborate on Android TV solutions for pay-TV operators
SDMC Technology, a professional Google-certified company for Android TV smart set- top boxes (STBs), together with NAGRA, a Kudelski Group (SIX:KUD.S) company and the world's leading independent provider of content protection and multiscreen television solutions, and Amlogic, a global fabless semi-conductor company and Google system-on-a-chip (SoC) partner, announced that they will collaborate on an Android TV-based solution for pay-TV operators offered as part of the NAGRA Android Fast Track program.
The highly secure end-to-end solution will be pre-integrated with
the NAGRA Connect security client and a new hybrid set-top box by SDMC powered
by the Amlogic S905X3 series system-on-chip (SoC). The solution will operate in
full compliance with the Google MediaCAS framework for Android TV deployments
to enable hybrid Android TV based services for pay-TV operators.
“In order to compete in today’s fast-moving pay-TV environment, operators need to have the right solutions at their disposal to deliver the services consumers want and deliver them quickly – while at the same time securing their business model,” said Maurice Van Riek, SVP and Head of Content and Asset Security at NAGRA. “Through the NAGRA Android Fast Track program we are now able to deliver more choice to pay- TV operators looking to deploy a pre-integrated Android TV-based solution, that not only enables a shorter time to market of pay-TV services but also safeguards premium assets from piracy. We are delighted to work with SDMC and Amlogic in this latest offering and welcome them to our ecosystem of leading Android TV partners.”
“SDMC always attaches the utmost importance to providing the best product performance experience to customers. Based on Google-certified Android TV, we are excited and pleased to work with NAGRA and Amlogic to develop and provide new Android TV hybrid STBs with best-in-class features and reliability for the pay-TV market," said David Li, CEO of SDMC Technology.
“By adding NAGRA security clients to Amlogic’s DVB-C hybrid STB
platform, we’re committed to removing barriers for pay-TV operators through
highly secure hybrid STBs that deliver a great multimedia user experience to
consumers,” said James Xie, Senior Vice President of Corporate Business
The joint SDMC, NAGRA and Amlogic solution will be on display at the APAC Android TV
Summit from November 12th to 14th, in Bangkok, Thailand.
