SMIT CI Plus with Conax, acquires Orbit OTT

September 7, 2012

SMIT Corporation, a provider of devices that enable secure digital content delivery, has jointly introduced its Integrated CI Plus Conditional Access Module (“Integrated CAM”), which bundles a pre-paired high security smart card chip with a proven designed CI Plus module with Conax, a global provider of solutions for protecting multi-device digital content.

Integrated CAM’s new technology eliminates the need for additional pairing with smart card and is ready to use in existing CI or CI Plus iDTVs. This new CAM solution aims to simplify operators’ order process and expedite delivery time by pairing the smart card with CAM in the factory and delivers directly to subscribers. Integrated CAM ensures the same high-level security for content protection and brings consumer closer in accessing secure, featured content from operators.

SMIT has also announced that the Company has completed the acquisition of the OTT business of Orbit-Media Limited, a specialist in OTT solutions for content distributors in Greater China.

Through the acquisition, SMIT aims to augment the Company’s product offerings from pure-play terminal devices, such as CAM, to dissemination of digital content services.
