SCM Microsystems Awarded $18 Million Contract With
For Its New Digital Satellite Receiver For Personal Computers
SCM Partners With Efdex, And EUTELSAT To Enable New,
Highly Secure, Business-To-Business E-Commerce Solution
LOS GATOS, Calif., Aug. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- SCM
Microsystems, Inc. (Nasdaq: SCMM, Neuer Markt: SMY), a
leading OEM supplier of digital access
control and connectivity solutions, announced today the
signing of a contract valued at $18 million USD over the next
18 months for a digital satellite receiver for
PCs by the Electronic Food and Drink Exchange (efdex). The
specialized receiver, or e-commerce box (E-Box), enables
high-speed data and digital video
broadcasting. Efdex will deploy E-Boxes at customer
locations such as grocery stores, restaurants and hotels, to
provide real time product and pricing information,
targeted advertising, special offers and online ordering
capabilities. The initial order from efdex is to provide the initial
infrastructure for the Western European
market. Efdex will be introducing the system both within
Europe and in other locations throughout North America and
``The combination of video and high volume data transfer
requires specialized interface hardware,'' stated Tim Carron
Brown, chairman of efdex. ``SCM's expertise
in digital TV and security combined with their ability to deliver
a complete solution from silicon and software through casing
and connectivity, made them an obvious
choice for this project.''
The efdex solution consists of a PC, an E-Box from SCM
Microsystems that is attached to a satellite dish, customized
e-business software from IBM, and satellite
services in Europe from EUTELSAT. EUTELSAT, a leading
European satellite system provider, is providing the required
satellite infrastructure in Europe including
transponders and head-ends. Once connected, customers will
have an in-house trading system which is constantly updated
with audio/video advertising and other
information on one half of the screen and data such as pricing,
special offers and ordering on the other half. The system will
directly link retailers with suppliers,
replacing the need to work with multiple distributors and
manufacturers while optimizing the ordering process,
expanding the product offerings and ensuring the best
``The efdex system is an excellent demonstration of how
EUTELSAT's pioneering of the use of open standards for
satellite data broadcasting contributes to
developing large-scale e-commerce markets,'' said Antonio
Arcidiacono, head of Multimedia Services of EUTELSAT.
``SCM's E-Box supports this by providing
specified security, tuning capability and PC connectivity
functions in an open, flexible and user friendly device.''
The E-Box can be used for high-speed data broadcasting
systems, audio/video broadcasts or a combination. With data
transfer rates of up to 6 Mb per second, the
E-Box is suited to a number of high-growth applications, in
particular, secure Internet e-commerce. The product combines
a digital satellite tuner, a crypto processor
for secure conditional access, a Universal smart card interface
for user authentication and e-commerce functions, a common
interface slot for the use of standard
satellite TV security systems through DVB or Point of
Deployment (POD) modules and a USB interface to provide
high speed, plug and play connectivity to a PC.
``The E-Box is an ideal example of how the convergence of PC
and broadcast technologies is enabling new markets, in this
case, business to business e-commerce,''
said Jean-Yves Le Roux, executive vice president and general
manager of SCM Microsystems' Digital TV Product Division.
``SCM is able to provide solutions for
these new markets by leveraging technologies across our
company, including the development of silicon, software,
security systems, digital TV reception
technologies, PC connectivity solutions and smart card
``We are excited about the new markets that our secure digital
satellite receiver for PCs will open to SCM,'' added Robert
Schneider, founder and chief executive
officer of SCM Microsystems. ``By partnering with leading
companies around the world, such as efdex, this is just the
