The new device has been developed with Google and manufacturers Kaon Media.
Its deployment extends the relationship between Stofa and Irdeto, which goes back to 2006. Since then Irdeto has been responsible for conditional access for approximately 400,000 homes across Denmark.
“Our new Android TV box will transform the consumer experience and we are pleased to have Irdeto partnering with us on the security for this service,” said CEO Ole Fruekilde Madsen at Stofa. “By implementing Irdeto Cloaked CA, our security needs are fully met and we can concentrate on meeting our customers’ growing requirements for more choice and convenience. Irdeto has been a valued technology partner for a number of years, and are again providing an agile solution which can adapt alongside our ambition to change the Danish TV experience.”
“As next-generation platforms like Android STBs grow in popularity, it is critical that operators employ a security solution that is flexible and is able to rapidly respond to any regulatory requirements,” added Doug Lowther, CEO, Irdeto. “Our holistic, 360-degree security approach ensures that Stofa’s solution is fully compliant as they look to expand their customer base with the roll out of this new service across Denmark.”
Irdeto Cloaked CA is part of the Irdeto 360 security suite.
