Verimatrix announced that MyBox, a set-top box provider in India, integrated Verimatrix’s Video Content Authority System (VCAS) for DVB platform into its newest line of digital set-top boxes (STBs.)
The platform packages locally-manufactured STB hardware from MyBox with advanced conditional access provisioned by Verimatrix to offer Indian pay-TV operators a platform for DVB cardless security.
MyBox provides STBs to various cable and satellite major operators across India and has reached more than 15 million pay-TV customers. By developing a joint platform with Verimatrix, MyBox can now offer Indian pay-TV operators hardware and CAS security without the long lead times typically required to procure STBs from overseas manufacturers. The collaboration between both companies supports the “Make in India” initiative launched by the Government of India to encourage local companies to manufacture products.
The STBs will soon also support Amazon’s Alexa voice-based assistant for an enhanced user experience. This is MyBox’s first product in the IoT domain, for which it has future plans to expand with Verimatrix.
