									ALi, First Chipset Partner with Conax to Launch Conax Cardless Reference

Taipei, Taiwan, September 17, 2013 --( ALi Corporation, a leading Set-Top Box (STB)
solution provider, today announced that ALi's family of STB chipsets will be the first chipsets to support
the new Conax Cardless solution for STBs. To enable rapid development of Cardless STBs, Conax and
ALi offer a reference design where the security core of Conax Cardless is embedded. The comprehensive
ALi reference design will provide fast-time-to-market and offer easy implementation to various STB

Conax Cardless is a conditional access product where the CA client runs inside a purpose-built secure
area of the STB chipset instead of in a physical smart card - providing hardware root of trust. The high
level of security provided by Conax Cardless has been made possible by utilizing the very latest
technology in STB chipsets providing sufficient hardware security mechanisms to enable secure
implementation of the CA client.

“Why launch Cardless CA now?” says Tom Jahr, EVP Products & Partners, Conax. “Conax security
solutions have always been software based. We have chosen smart cards as a means to distribute and
protect our software. This is the most secure way, and Conax has been and will always be extremely
focused on security. Recent development in chipset technology has introduced STB chipsets with
increased security to a level where we as Conax are comfortable. This has now enabled us to launch a
Cardless solution inside a purpose-built secure area of the chipset - and under Conax brand.”

Daniel Huang, Chief Operating & Technology Officer at ALi, states, “Security is a critical requirement
for digital entertainment systems, and therefore is a key focus for ALi. As a global leader in STB
technology, ALi has been highly devoted to having innovative architecture and implementation of STB
SOC for enhancing security capabilities. Our efforts and achievements are once again recognized with
ALi's chipsets chosen as the first to launch Conax Cardless CA.”

The Cardless STB reference design will be demonstrated at Conax's stand #1.D69 at IBC 2013.
