Smart TV – Linchpin in next-gen hybrid broadcasting strategies (Part 2)

Why fully converged security is critical for smart TV OEMs and broadcasters

As described in Part 1 of this two-part series, DVB operators are pursuing hybrid broadcast-OTT strategies by exploiting the smart TV as the increasingly dominant viewing platform. This paper focuses on broadcasters’ need for content protection that will secure both DVB and OTT services, but free of outmoded approaches with conditional access systems (CAS) and set-top-boxes (STBs). The advanced processing capabilities of modern smart TV chips make it possible to eliminate the costs and inconveniences of CAS and STBs.
