FRANSAT Launches "FRANSAT Connect" Its New Connected TV Service Portal

The FRANSAT Connect portal has been developed with the support of the Dotscreen agency.


XENA® HD Twin Connect: The first Hybrid satellite receiver, Viaccess 5.0, HbbTV 1.5 with embedded DRM on the market!

The latest product in the ASTON FRANSAT HD range, the XENA ® HD Twin Connect receiver is the first  Viaccess 5.0  satellite  receiver on the market to include  HbbTV 1.5  and  DRM (Digital Rights Management). This connected receiver provides all the functionalities of the FRANSAT  Connect    portal and additional TV channel interactive content combined with optimum security, thanks to ASTON's decision to incorporate Marlin DRM. This standard ensures secure downloading of broadcast and broadband content available on the channels. It also provides operators with security, encryption and DRM for VOD packages.

Designed in under a year under the strong impetus of the ASTON and FRANSAT teams, XENA® HD Twin Connect is strikingly fluid and quick to use. Based on MStar's K2-MSD 7862 processor, the receiver concentrates the best of today's technology: HbbTV 1.5, Marlin DRM, double tuner, multi-satellites, 2 card readers, PVR-Ready function via the 2 USB ports (recording on external disk drive), PUSH VOD function and the innovative and secure multi-room function that does not require a smart card in secondary receivers. XENA® HD Twin Connect will be marketed as of November 2013.
