SMiT and Verimatrix partner on advanced CI+ CAM

September 24, 2013

SMiT, the operation platform provider for secure distribution of paid content and Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services, have formed a collaboration aimed at integrating SMiT’s Advanced Security CI+ 1.3 CAM with the Verimatrix ViewRight client library.

The CI+ 1.3 CAM will be a cardless product integrating Verimatrix’s highest level of client security technology. With the CAM, end-users can watch encrypted TV programmes with no need for a smart card, and operators will minimise their costs by skipping the CAM-smart card pairing process while ensuring a highly secure transmission. Additionally, it fully complies with the CI+ 1.3 standard to support rich interactive features such as hybrid VoD, catch-up TV, parent control, etc.
The Verimatrix Advanced Security CAM has already ignited great interest in the market, with customers from the EMEA and APAC regions frequently inquiring about the details. Consumers can purchase this new product in Q4 2013.

”SMiT was the first to introduce the Verimatrix CAM to the market, and today, we are happy to be the first again to deploy the Verimatrix ViewRight client security technology in our CAM products,” said Mr. Stephen He, executive vice president, SMiT. ”The seamless cooperation guarantees SMiT’s highly secure product strategy for operators and compelling interactive experience for subscribers. I believe that this innovative and consumer-oriented product will be a great success in the market.”

“Cardless security solutions are gaining significant momentum in the market due to their flexibility and robust security techniques,” said Steve Oetegenn, chief sales and marketing officer, Verimatrix. “We are happy to extend our partnership with SMiT to continue to enable a new class of revenue security solutions.”
