CHENGDU, China, Dec. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- RSCRYPTO Technology Co. Ltd (RSCRYPTO), a pioneer in Conditional Access Security (CAS), today announced a partnership with SypherMedia International (SMI), a security technology company specializing in secure SoC BlackBox Programming and Key Management Systems.
RSCRYPTO plans to present a new generation CAS-PHI CAS in the first quarter of 2017, which will enable operators to take control of their own security. As an "Independent Trust Authority", SMI is to manage the keys for operators.
RSCRYPTO is also announcing their "Security inside" alliance program, welcoming Pay TV Operators, CAS vendors, Chipset vendors, STB Vendors, and TV set vendors who are interested in securely replaceable CAS to participate.
"It has been a common and long-standing way for CAS vendors to sell smartcards and charge a device royalty for daily content protection service. Most of the time, operators are locked into a technology ecosystem, such as STB, Chipset, middleware, or DRM, once CAS vendor chosen," said Levent Le, COO and co-ounder of RSCRYPTO. "We believe it is the right time for operators to break free of CAS vendor lock-in. Not only will each operator be more flexible and innovative picking software and hardware suppliers and drive down the CAPEX, but also it benefits the whole DVB industry for network migration as more and more consolidations & mergers are happening nowadays. Our PHI CAS, industry first, encourages the replacement of our own CAS if the operator is not satisfied, plus it includes an innovative monthly service business model. And we are pleased to present this new solution to the industry with SMI."
"SMI has been focusing on media security since 2003, with broad strategic partnerships with global chip vendors. We are the largest third party custom chip programmer in the world with over 60 customers. Our SypherSignature™ Key Management and BlackBox Programming System solution has been market proven with many custom CAS cases, audited and approved by Farncombe (Security Architecture best in class), Merdan, and ISE," said Dr. Ron Cocchi, CTO of SMI. "Our security chip programming has been implemented on multiple chip manufacturing lines such as (listed in Alphabetical Order) ALi, Broadcom, Hisilicon, Intel, MaxLinear, Montage, MStar, Novatek, Socionext, Sigma Designs, ST Microelectronics and ViXS Systems, which enable fast-to-market product development with diversity. We are happy to co-promote this replaceable CAS concept with RSCRYPTO and any other CAS vendors."
"SMI has been a pioneer in the area of Key independence for Operators since our inception and we welcome adding RSCRYPTO to our ever-growing list of partners who share this same vision," said Dennis Flaharty, President and CEO of SMI.
RSCRYPTO is a technology innovator in the Pay TV industry. The philosophy of our core solution, the PHI CAS (Conditional Access System) is: Security as a Tool, Security as a Service.
Via independent third party "Key and Credential" service authority, PHI CAS empowers operators technically ("replace if not satisfied") and commercially ("Pay as you use"). There are no Security compromises as hardware security from the SoC level stays same. PHI CAS supports Cardless, Advanced security, Bi way, and is replaceable.
RSCRYPTO is headquartered in Chengdu, China.
