Exset, a specialist in TV systems for developing markets has teamed up with set-top technology provider MStar to create a chipset and software platform. 

The alliance has seen the combining of MStar’s silicon, hardware conditional access and software stack to create a set-top box architecture and reference design suited to Exset’s Digital Monetisation System (DMS), a platform that is designed to enable monetisation of digital TV rollouts in markets where traditional subscription models are thought to be impractical.

Alex Borland, CEO, Exset, said, “The set-top box reference design is essential to the deployment of DMS and we’re really pleased to be partnering with MStar because of the company’s acknowledged expertise in the field. Together we have been able to create a fantastic user experience at a price point that will make people really sit up and listen.”
