Conexant and Latens Team to Increase Security and Lower Costs for Pay TV Operators

Enhanced Set-top Box Security Solutions Improve Anti-piracy Protection for Broadcast Networks

Conexant Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CNXT) and Latens, a market leader in software conditional access and service delivery platforms for pay TV operators, today announced that they have joined forces to increase security and lower costs for satellite, cable, and digital terrestrial pay television broadcast network operators. In support of this effort, Conexant has integrated the Latens BCAS (Broadcast Conditional Access System) security software into its industry-leading CX2415X family of set-top box (STB) solutions. To speed product development efforts, a reference design based on Conexant and Latens’ solutions is also available.

“Our highly integrated, advanced set-top box solutions include an innovative set of security technologies that greatly enhance the ability of broadcasters to protect their programming assets and revenue stream,” said Lewis Brewster, executive vice president and general manager of Conexant’s Broadband Media Processing business. “By integrating Latens’ proven conditional access technology into our products, we can now offer our customers an added level of security, and a broader choice of proven anti-piracy solutions.”

“The combination of Conexant’s industry-leading chipsets and our advanced, flexible conditional access technology provides operators with exceptionally high security for broadcast networks,” says Alex Borland, head of Technical Services for Latens. “In addition, the high level of integration helps lower system costs, helping operators to compete more effectively.”

Latens BCAS is a next-generation, digital video broadcast (DVB®) compliant conditional access system tailored to meet the specific requirements of pay TV network service providers. This conditional access solution was designed using advanced software security techniques to provide operators with a flexible and highly secure solution. It uniquely enables operators without an “always-on” return path to protect revenues and content without the need for a smart card.

Conexant’s industry-leading CX2415X MPEG decoder family is currently being deployed in pay TV networks worldwide. The availability of complete reference software drivers and the high level of integration help lower bill-of-materials and development costs, enabling manufacturers to deliver a wide range of cost-effective digital STBs.
