iWedia’s Linux-Based Teatro-3.0 STB Software Solution Now Available for the Latest HiSilicon’s Family of SoC for Connected STB

LAUSANNE, Switzerland — iWedia, a leading provider of software solutions for TV devices to service operators and Consumer Electronics manufacturers, today announced that its Linux-based Teatro-3.0 STB software solution is available for the latest HiSilicon’s family of System-on-Chip (SoC) for connected STB from HiSilicon Technologies Co., Ltd., a worldwide leading company providing silicon solutions for digital home, communications and wireless terminals.

The announcement was made to coincide with the opening of TV Connect 2016 which is held in London (ExCel) from Tuesday, April 26th through to Thursday, April 28th. Both HiSilicon (stand #25) and iWedia (stand #115) exhibit at the show where the integrated solution will be demonstrated.

The Hi3798/Hi3796 series of chipsets includes Hi3798M V100, Hi3796M V100, and Hi3798C V200. It provides solutions for entry-level through high-end FHD/UHD HEVC STB. It features an advanced security engine integrating a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE), a Secure Video-Path (SVP), and forensic watermarking technologies. All security requirements are fulfilled to protect the system both in static and running modes. The security engine protects the power on and boot processes, the OS kernel loading, the middleware launching, and the app/UI execution.

Teatro-3.0 is a software solution for hybrid (DVB+IP) STB based on Linux with an easy to customize User Interface / resident app developed using regular Web technologies (HTML, CSS, DOM, JavaScript). The solution features DLNA (player and renderer), access to “walled garden” Web and OTT video services (CE-HTML portals, HbbTV applications), as well as Personal Video Recorder and Time Shift Buffer.

Teatro-3.0 is pre-integrated with NAGRA and Conax Conditional Access Systems and is fully compliant with their software architecture security requirements.

“With Teatro-3.0 Pay TV broadcast operators can bring their OTT video services on the main screen along with their legacy broadcast services. All delivered with a customized and branded UI designed using basic Web technologies,“ said Sunghoon Kim, VP Sales at iWedia. “The latest family of SoC for connected FHD/UHD HEVC STB from HiSilicon was a perfect target for this solution and we are very pleased to have achieved this porting”.

“With the availability of Teatro-3.0 on our Hi3798/Hi3796 series of chipsets and in leveraging iWedia’s integration services capabilities we help our STB OEM customers to bring a better Time-To-Market to the Pay TV operators they target with connected STB,” said Liu Zhiyang, General Manager of STB Chipsets at HiSilicon.
