SCM Microsystems Accelerates PC/TV Convergence
With Interoperability Breakthrough
- OpenCable Receiver Transforms PC into Interactive Set-Top Box,
Booth T548, NAB2000, Las Vegas, NV, April 9-12, 2000 -
LOS GATOS, Calif., April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- SCM Microsystems, Inc.
(Nasdaq: SCMM, Neuer Markt: SMY), a leading provider of solutions that open
the Digital World, announces that its open standards-based broadband PC
receiver has successfully completed a series of CableLabs(R)-sponsored
interoperability trials with major conditional access providers for the
digital cable television market. SCM`s OpenCable(TM)-compliant PC receiver is
being developed with Microsoft and will enable consumers to use their PCs to
access premium services offered by cable operators. When connected to the
cable receiver, the PC will act as a powerful digital television set-top box
to enable interactive viewing, gaming and e-commerce.
OpenCable aims to create a retail market for digital TV receivers in the
U.S. and provide consumers with extended choice for digital cable television
equipment and services. Under the OpenCable initiative, the algorithms to
descramble different cable operators` encrypted signals are consolidated into
interchangeable security modules that can be used by any retail set-top box.
In recent tests hosted by CableLabs, SCM`s open standards-based cable receiver
was able to descramble multiple encrypted signals, transmitted over multiple
cable headends. This is a significant breakthrough for the digital cable
television market in the U.S., where proprietary set tops with embedded
encryption systems have been dominant.

"SCM Microsystems has been great to work with in achieving this major
milestone," said Dave Fester, general manager of marketing in the Digital
Media Division at Microsoft Corp. "Microsoft views this emerging convergence
space as a great opportunity, and we are pleased to work closely with SCM to
enable PC architecture-based devices to support living room scenarios for
receiving cable television and other value-added services."
Participating in the recent interoperability trials were the world`s
leading conditional access providers, including Mindport/Irdeto,
Motorola/General Instrument, Nagra, NDS and Scientific Atlanta. Headend
suppliers included Divicom, Motorola/ General Instrument and Scientific
Atlanta.
With a 1394 "FireWire" interface to the PC, the OpenCable receiver
supports copy-protected MPEG 2 transmissions for high definition television
viewing. Combined with the interactive and processing power of the PC, this
will enable a host of new, high bandwidth applications, and allow the PC
architecture to act as the heart of a home network and entertainment system.
"The availability of an OpenCable receiver for the large installed base of
PCs will provide significant benefits to both cable operators and PC users,"
said Luc Vantalon, Vice President of Worldwide Business Development for
Digital TV at SCM. "This creates the possibility for interactive services
that use the processing power and rich Internet functionality of the PC,
allowing cable operators to combine premium TV content with a broadband
Internet connection."
The OpenCable(TM) Broadband PC receiver will be demonstrated at SCM
Microsystems` booth T548, as the key to a complete PC-based home entertainment
system.

Technical Information
The OpenCable PC receiver is implemented as a Device Bay module, providing
a sealed box that interfaces with any digital cable network. The receiver
module easily fits into a standard racking system, providing an easy way for
consumers to add functionality to the PC. An OpenCable point of deployment
(POD) module fits into the receiver, providing conditional access
authentication and descrambling.
The receiver tunes to the channel, demodulates the signal, handles all of
the conditional access functionality, then outputs the requested
copy-protected MPEG stream over 1394 to the PC.
This, together with other PC infrastructure pieces, helps prevent
high-resolution movies and other copyright-protected content from being
illegally distributed or copied once delivered to the PC. Beta receivers are
anticipated to be available in mid-2000 to coincide with the OpenCable
rollout.

SCM Microsystems Frees Business from the World Wide Wait

SCM Launches Broadband Satellite PC Receiver at NAB2000, Booth T548, Las Vegas, NV, April
9-12, 2000

LOS GATOS, Calif., April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- SCM Microsystems, Inc. (Nasdaq: SCMM; Neuer Markt: SMY), a leading provider of solutions that open the
Digital World, launches its St@rKey(TM) satellite broadband PC receiver to the U.S. market at NAB2000. St@rKey enables business users to access streaming,
multimedia and Web content at high speeds via satellite, delivered securely and directly to the PC.

St@rKey is the first product in SCM's family of broadband PC receivers, which open the PC platform to high-value, high-bandwidth multimedia content. St@rKey
is designed for a variety of uses in commerce, banking, education and medicine, as well as secure corporate broadcast applications. Business applications include
distribution of training or presentation videos to the desktop and delivery of large data files such as inventory, price lists and other dynamic content, all delivered
securely to authorized employees or partners.

St@rKey supports Internet multicasting, which is the transmission of one message to many recipients, unlike traditional point-to-point Internet transmissions, where
the same message is sent individually to each recipient. Internet multicasting solves the problem of network congestion caused by point to point transmissions and
magnified by increasingly high bandwidth, multimedia content. Combined with local caching on the PC disk drive, satellite Internet multicasting is a cost-effective

solution for immediate access to the richest content.

St@rKey attaches easily to the PC using a USB port and delivers broadband Internet access, streaming video and digital TV reception at up to 6MB per second,
more than 100 times faster than a 56K modem. The device also includes a universal smart card access interface for secure e-commerce and private intranet
transactions. St@rKey is currently being field tested by SCM customers in Europe.

``The ability to securely transmit high bandwidth, high value content using satellite multicasting offers businesses the most efficient solution to their critical
communications problems,'' said Luc Vantalon, vice president, worldwide business development for digital TV at SCM. ``St@rkey unleashes the power of the
Internet as it allows fast and secure transfer and delivery of high bandwidth, audio, video and data. Companies can now reach thousands of users quickly and
inexpensively to deliver protected, business-critical content directly to the PC.''

St@rkey comprises: digital satellite tuner, crypto processor for secure conditional access, universal smart card interface for user authentication and e-commerce
functions. Also included is a common interface slot for the use of standard satellite TV security systems through DVB-CI, as well as a USB interface to provide high
speed, plug and play connectivity to a PC.

St@rKey will be displayed at SCM Microsystems' booth T548, and is available immediately to OEM partners.
