Conax announces Lynx and Prime Access17 September 2017
Lynx, a TEE-based solution and Prime Access, a cardless security client designed for hybrid set-top boxes, have been announced by Conax at IBC. The company says it is responding to connectable set-top boxes being open to third-party apps, presenting an increased piracy threat surface, while pay-TV operators are required to meet stricter MovieLabs guidelines for ECP specifications, to eliminate piracy and content redistribution issues on connected devices.
“Conax Lynx enables strong isolation on hybrid set-top-boxes, reduced integration effort for middleware partners and access to premium 4K/UHD content for operators,” said Tor Helge Kristiansen, EVP and principal architect at Conax. “Lynx complements Conax Smart Card and cardless security clients, enabling value-added features in advanced middleware solutions.”
“Conax Prime Access, the latest addition to the range of Conax content security clients, will help pay-TV operators boost ARPU and secure their content based on the ECP specifications recommended by MovieLabs,” said Tom Jahr, EVP and head of products.
“Prime Access is pre-integrated with Lynx, using a security architecture that allows pay-TV operators to easily integrate their own or third party OTT services on the same set top box. With Prime Access, operators can reduce churn by delivering their own OTT services and enhance user experience on the same advanced set-top box.”
