Neotion introduces a new generation platform for CAM’s, fully compliant with the CI Plus V1.3 Standard. This offers to Satellite, Terrestrial and Cable Pay-TV operators an extended set of new features including LSC, Operator profile etc…. when combined with new CI Plus 1.3 TV models soon in commercial deployment.
The CI Plus interface is now 100 per ceny available on all iDTV sold across Europe (200 million of devices already deployed) and will start to be implemented in the rest of the world. In addition to that, CI Plus specifications (V1.3) hugely reduce the gap between the Conditional Access Module (CAM) and the set-top-box offering real enhancements through the CAM.
The delivery of value added services by Pay-TV providers is a reality with the new Neotion CAM CI Plus1.3 product range, whatever the Conditional Access System embedded in the Neotion CAM or type of network used by the Operators.
The CI Plus 1.3 resources such as Operator Profile, Low Speed Communication V3, Application Man Machine Interface V1 or Host Control V2 really increase operator control over content usage with the new features in the CAM, further enhancing the couple TV-set + CAM. For example, the Operator Profile resource provided by the CI Plus 1.3 Neotion CAM allows the operator’s customised channel list and numbering to be used by the TV & CAM bundle as it is done with a Set-Top-Box. Furthermore, the LSC resource also made available by the CI Plus 1.3 CAM enables the viewers to run interactive applications and non-linear services such as Video on Demand, Catch-Up TV or customised EPG, without the need for any Set-Top-Box.
With many projects under development, our customers are confident to increase the penetration of CI Plus CAM’s in the digital TV market.
