Realtek Semiconductor – a Taiwanese Semiconductor Company – and Irdeto – a cybersecurity company specialising in digital platforms – have jointly developed a hybrid Android TV and RDK set-top-box platform. The collaboration saw Realtek integrate its RTD1319D STB System on Chip (SoC) with Irdeto’s DVB stack. Irdeto says its hybrid middleware for Android TV and RDK supports a super-aggregator platform with integrated and tested end-to-end security solutions, making it “best positioned to support truly scalable certification and deployment of next-generation OTT and hybrid video platforms.”

The collaboration between Realtek and Irdeto began earlier with Realtek’s range of RTD13xx products and has now expanded to include the latest generation RTD1319D STB SoC, supporting VVC/H.266 codec and other audiovisual technologies such as 4K advanced HDR and 3D audio. The company has added support for HDMI 2.1a features, including VRR and QMS, in response to “the increasing demand for a superior immersive video and gaming experience.”

Shane McCarthy, COO of Video Entertainment at Irdeto, said: “Irdeto is at the forefront of the super aggregator market with our 50+ years of experience securing premium content in video entertainment, and our operator heritage ensures we understand the market well. We are happy to be working with partners such as Realtek to bring new solutions to the market.”

Yee-Wei Huang, Vice President of Realtek, commented: “In the intensively competitive set-top chipset market, Realtek leaped ahead by introducing the RTD1319D – the world’s first VVC set-top chipset, suitable for both Android TV and RDK. Through our collaboration with Irdeto, and our shared vision and commitment to excellence, we are extremely proud to present this advanced product to the market.”
