Broadcom Corporation, a global innovation leader in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications has announced to receive NAGRA NOCS3 Security certification for HEVC and Ultra High Definition set-top box SoCs. The security architecture supports the latest content protection, ensuring the supply of superior content and services to numerous devices.
Broadcom has achieved NAGRA’s next-gen security certification on several chips in its HEVC-enabled device portfolio, including the BCM7445 home gateway device, the BCM7366 direct broadcast satellite integrated receiver and the BCM7252S device.
The BCM7445 and BCM7366 are in production process while the BCM7252S is currently sampling.
“Broadcom first led the Ultra HD market with innovative designs that deliver the 4K experience to viewers worldwide,” said Dan Marotta, Broadcom Executive Vice President and General Manager, Broadband & Connectivity Group. “As the first silicon vendor to receive NOCS3 security certification for our portfolio of HEVC-enabled chipsets, Broadcom will continue to work with NAGRA to provide the most advanced level of content protection for the delivery of Ultra HD content.”
With NAGRA NOCS3 support, Broadcom’s STB platforms offer service providers a multi-conditional access or digital rights management environment that enables the delivery of secure premium content and services to multiple screens in the home. Integration of NOCS3 also allows operators to move security constraints from the device to the chipset, reducing the cost and complexity of developing secure STBs, the press release states.
“NAGRA NOCS3 technology supports our entire range of NAGRA anyCAST CAS and DRM solutions, from our secure embedded client to our connected CAS/DRM client, anyCAST CONNECT,” said Maurice van Riek, NAGRA Senior Vice President, Content and Asset Security. “Broadcom’s implementation of NOCS3 will ensure the highest level of security to customers through strict compliance with emerging Ultra HD security requirements.”
It’s worth noting that, NAGRA developed NOCS3 to protect service providers’ investment in consumer devices. And the NAGRA Advanced Security Certification safeguards security specifications are appropriately applied on consumer devices like set-top boxes.
