Eurofins Digital Testing Provides Pay TV Security Certification for MOST Automotive Infotainment Systems
Eurofins Digital Testing (formerly Digital TV Labs and Testronic Labs Belgium) is now the official lab for certifying Pay TV enabled automotive infotainment systems, which use the MOST network to transport CI+ protected content, using Digital Transmission Content Protection (DTCP).
The MOST Cooperation recently released its latest MOST Stream Transmission Specification, which includes support for the MOST CI+ Interim License Agreement issued by CI Plus LLP.
CI+ is a technical specification which provides additional security and features to the proven DVB Common Interface (CI) standard and Conditional Access Module (CAM). Its main benefit is enabling Pay TV operators to deliver high value content (such as HD) to retail receivers in a secure environment. As a result of the work undertaken with Eurofins Digital Testing, any MOST device can now be certified to securely transport CI+ protected content using Digital Transmission Content Protection (DTCP) – this provides cost-effective CI based Pay TV infotainment networks into their customer’s vehicles.
Andy Hickman, CEO Eurofins Digital Testing Bristol said:
“We are pleased to be enabling secure Pay TV on automotive infotainment systems, by extending our CI+ certification to MOST systems.” He added “We worked closely with the MOST and CI Plus LLP organisations to enhance our CI+ Test Tool and test regime to meet the stringent security requirements for CI+ enabled MOST devices and are extremely pleased with the outcome. This represents a new era for Pay TV services in the infotainment market.”
