SEOUL, South Korea — Telechips Inc. (KOSDAQ:054450), a leading global provider of Set-top box (STB) System-on-Chips (SoC), today announced that its new Lion STB chipset has been awarded Synamedia’s 4K conditional access certification.

Lion is a next-generation ultra-high definition OTT/STB SoC that features low power consumption and delivers an enhanced user experience with a sophisticated user interface. The combination of Telechips’ Lion chipset and Synamedia’s enhanced VideoGuard security secures operators’ content, services and revenues while delivering a superior viewing experience.

Lion supports HDR formats, including HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision, which are required for 4K video. Lion is produced using the 14nm Fin-FET process, resulting in low-power consumption performance and its small form-factor design.

Synamedia’s accreditation of the Lion chipset complements the certification of Telechips’ HD chipset, TCC897x in 2017.

Synamedia is the largest global provider of video solutions for leading pay-TV operators. Customers include Astro, Bharti Airtel, China DTH, Foxtel, Oi and Tata Sky. VideoGuard currently protects over 330 million active client devices and over $100 billion in customer revenues.

Sue Couto, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Asia Pacific for Synamedia, added, “Soaring piracy levels are threatening pay-TV operators’ business models. Fortunately, delivering superior video security solutions is in Synamedia’s DNA. Our latest partnership with Telechips lets pay-TV operators offer the ultimate ultra HD viewing experiences, safe in the knowledge that they can protect their content, services and revenues against these threats.”

“We are proud to be building further on our partnership with Synamedia, with this enhanced security solution on our Lion chipset,” said BM Lee, SVP, CE Business Unit at Telechips. “Telechips’ partnership with Synamedia will extend our sales coverage in the pay-TV market.”
