MUMBAI: ALi Corporation, a leading Set-Top Box (STB) chipset provider, Dish TV India Limited, India’s largest Direct-to-Home (DTH) operator, and HANDAN, the leading supplier of multimedia and home entertainment devices in Korea, proudly announced that they have further extended their partnership by launching the latest hybrid solution, “Dish Box” to enrich TV experience for subscribers in India. The new set-top box developed by the partnership will be highly connected to enable OTT (over-the-top) viewing entertainment.

Dish TV India Limited, being the leader in DTH service and TV distribution in India, is expanding its OTT offerings by introducing Dish Connected Box to allow subscribers to enjoy both DVB TV broadcasting and OTT contents.

ALi Corp.’s secure value SoC (system on chip) was chosen due to its wide compliance with mainstream CAS (conditional access system) security features, ideal for DVB-S2 Pay TV applications. In this joint collaboration, the secure SoC was adopted as the core of the Dish Connected Box to integrate OTT Apps, developed by Handan. The integration  of  hardware,  software  and  middleware  will  enable  subscribers  to  view  both  OTT  apps  and DVB-broadcasted contents.

“Set-top boxes must be able to consume multimedia contents, like TV, videos, and even radio programs broadcasted through Internet protocol. This is the trend that TV set-top boxes must be connected”, said Daniel Huang, CEO of ALi Corp. “We foresee the future that set-top boxes shall consume streamed contents over various streaming protocols. Thus, we are pleased that Dish TV India Limited partners with us to develop the hybrid solutions integrating WiFi connectivity and Google Widevine DRM. In fact, our SoC packs multiple features which can shorten the development time and accelerate the time-to-market process”.

“As always, ALi Corp. has been a highly trusted and dedicated partner for us”, said V.K. Gupta, COO of Dish TV India Limited. “We are confident that our Connected Box will change the way multimedia contents are consumed. In fact, we will work with ALi to further enrich the Connected Box through further hardware-software integration, for it to go cloud”.

“Handan is glad to take part in the joint partnership to develop the latest hybrid Connected Box. This time, we are pleased to implement OTT Apps so that subscribers will be able to view both DVB and OTT contents,” said Y. Lee, CEO of HANDAN. “We will continue our dedication to work with ALi Corp. and Dish TV India Limited to expand market penetration in India”.
