Downloadable conditional-access (CA) and IPTV service delivery platform provider Latens has launched the Latens STIK, a Set Top Box Integration Kit that simplifies the process of integrating Latens conditional access for IPTV and cable set-top boxes (STB).
For STB vendors, the main benefit of the kit is to reduce the time and cost of integrating with Latens’ CA solutions. For network operators, the main advantage is widening the choice of set-top box and CA combinations.
Latens STIK features:
- A toolkit for swift, easy integration and licensing of Latens client CAS for STBs.
- A step-by-step integration process, including example code and automated test suite and an additional option for initial self certification.
- A secure stream player tool to ensure full operational integrity following upgrades of CA and STB software for IP and cable (and hybrid cable/IP) boxes, verifying correct operation of DVB CSA and AES descrambling.
