Taixin DCAS Solution For Operators


Taixin DCAS Introduction


DCAS(Downloadable Conditional Access System) is the TV conditional access system which updating the CA system algorithm 

and key online which downloaded from the front-end of Broadcasting Company and run in the terminal devices removing the need 

for smart card. The objective of implementing DCAS is to remove the hardware binding and urge the standardization and market-

oriented development of pay-TV terminal devices.

 

 In March, 2012, the State Administration of Radio Film and Television issued the Downloadable Conditional Access System for Next 

Generation Broadcasting Cable Network in China, which stipulated the Java interface of DCAS. Based on the interface, the CA software

 can remove the binding of the hardware platform. As a result, it can promote the cross-platform operation of DCAS, and the open 

interface is suitable for the smart TV terminal devices.

Taixin has been involved in the CA research and development for decades, and developed the new conditional access system based on

the downloadable cardless CA research and business implementation experience and complying with the Downloadable Conditional Access 

System for Next Generation Broadcasting Cable Network. The advantages are as following:

1. Based on the Java virtual devices and running cross-platform;
      2. The CA application is downloadable without terminal device integration and is good for market-oriented development.
      3. with high security, eliminating the CW sharing problem in the internet environment.
      4. Cost saving and with no need for special hardware interface and circuits
      5. Space saving and suitable for ultrathin Television 
      Up to now, Taixin DCAS has been run on some name brand smart TV such as Skyworth and Haier. Furthermore, the TV giants TCL, 

Hisense, LG and other TV plants are going to cooperate with Taixin in DCAS commercially implementation.



Taixin DCAS frontend conforms with DVB SimulCrypt specification, the implement is easy and convenient, this could be done from system 
     preparation to operation within 1to 2 months. The details are as below:


      1. We need to know operator’s basic information, such as equipment, customers number, and the operator’s specific demand, factory 

          model of scrambler and multiplexer, running CA system, potential customers. This time needs 1-3 days.

      2. Taixin DCAS system software and hardware implement, including Taixin DCAS server procurement, OS system and the installation 

          of third party, Taixin DCAS system installation and commissioning. This time needs 3-7 days.

      3.  Scrambler and multiplexer integration, Taixin DCAS system fully considers the integration with front-end, now we have already 

          integrated many multiplexers like Harmonic、Scopus、Thomson、Teleste、Cisco; we have already integrated independent scramblers 

          like SA, V-shine, Compunicate, Sumuvision and Huawei, integration period for multiplexer & scrambler is 5-7 days, independent scrambler 

          needs 3-5 days.

      4. Simulcrypt test, this work is based on operator’s running CA system in front-end, mainly observe the original CA system and Taixin DCAS 

          system parallel’s stability, testing time is 1-3 days. Taixin DCAS has already simulcrypt NDS, Nagra, Cona, Irdeto, Viaccess, Sumuvision, 

          Compunicate, DVN, Novel Supertv etc.

      5. BOSS/SMS system integration, Taixin will provide CA interface files and accordingly technical support to BOSS/SMS system provider,

         this will be done within 7-14 days. Taixin DCAS system has already integrated Chengyi, Raochen, Gosstech, DVN, Jezetech, Upcoming 

         technology, Huge-tech etc. The integration time normally from 7-14 days.         6. STB software and hardware preparation: according to customer’s demand, we prepare demonstration and test terminal, if we use the

         running product without change, 1-2 days will be ok, if the software change is not big, 3-7 days will be done, if the software change is

         big or hardware solution need to be changed, this time will depend. Now, many STB products based on Amlogic and Broadcom solution 

         are applied in Taixin DCAS, also we help Skyworth all series smart TV and some series of Haier smart TV successfully set up with Taixin

         DCAS. TCL, Hisense, LG are cooperating with us positively.

      7. Demonstration, mainly includes Taixin DCAS front-end system use and STB function demonstration, such as authorize anti-authority, 

         OSD, Email, Internet security visit control etc, time will be 1-3 days.

      8. Commissioning: After all works as mentioned above are done, system now enters into commissioning, this time will be 15-30 days according 

         to the operator’s demand, this phase is mainly for operator to know Taixin DCAS system and test for system adaptability. 

      9. Operation and maintenance: Taixin will provide telephone, Email, site technical support and maintenance service in the operation, we will 

         secure the system running, help operator control and optimize the digital TV business.
