Set-top vendor EchoStar Europe has licensed the Conax conditional access system for use in a new range of connected devices.
The first product ready for market is the EchoStar HDC-420, a high definition set-top box that is pre-integrated with CA and embedded software for running a suite of applications including user interface, electronic programme guide and access to IP services. The product can be upgraded to incorporate DVR services via a user-installed USB hard disk drive. EchoStar will target cable operators throughout the European territory.
“We are delighted to announce our relationship with Conax and also the availability of a new range of off-the-shelf connected device solutions for cable operators”, said Rhod Williams, senior vice-president and general manager of EchoStar Europe. “We are constantly looking to broaden our technology expertise and gain access to new markets, and this latest agreement adds to our already strong portfolio of technologies that are specified by pay TV operators”.
