NDS launches Powered by NDS certification programme in Asia Pacific region


NDS, a News Corporation company and the leading provider of conditional access systems and interactive applications for digital pay TV, today announced it has launched the new Powered by NDS Certification Program to enable faster and seamless integration of NDS Open VideoGuard conditional access with Asian manufactured set-top boxes (STBs).

The programme, which started in Korea, also targets manufacturers in India, China and Taiwan, a company release says.

The first step of the two-stage certification programme reduces cost of integration and provides added convenience by providing a tool kit to enable the manufacturer to integrate the conditional access system prior to selecting a middleware. Manufacturers who successfully complete stage one will become Powered by NDS Certified Partners. In stage two, the manufacturer receives the VideoGuard Integrator Kit, which enables integration of NDS conditional access with all elements of the STB middleware and hardware. Upon completion of stage two, the vendor will achieve the Powered by NDS Premier Partner certification.

NDS Asia Pacific technical staff in Hong Kong, Beijing, Sydney and Bangalore provide 24/7 technical support for the Asian STB partners. The Certified Partners receive the added benefit of access to NDS markets, exclusive NDS developer tools, and dedicated NDS technical support and consulting services to facilitate expansion of their business.
