SmarDTV extends Conax licence
September 11, 2014
SmarDTV has announced that it will introduce a new range of innovative CI+ modules, and has extended its licence and cooperation agreement with Conax to include set-top boxes.
SmarDTV will introduce a CI+ 1.3 module that is compliant with the latest generation of the Conax Contego and Conax Conformity testing, ensuring high quality protection for all Conax customers while enabling features such as Operator profile supporting channel list customization.
SmarDTV will also introduce a fully Conax compliant state-of-the-art WIFICAM module enabling seamless reception of hybrid services without the need for a set-top box which presents an immediately deployable benefit to Conax customers offering a mix of broadcast and OTT services.
Last but not least SmarDTV will introduce its set-top box products supporting Conax customers and including its innovative OTT and hybrid devices. Both SmarDTV and Conax are Kudelski companies.
“We have supported Conax customers and their subscribers with our CI and CI+ CAMs for over 15 years and we are delighted to expand our latest product range with compliancy for Conax Contego. Conax customers have traditionally had subscribers that have been keen CAM users and therefore introducing CAMs with the latest features will be warmly welcomed by these subscribers and Conax customers. In addition we are also introducing Conax Contego compliancy in our pre-integrated OTT and hybrid set-top boxes in order to accelerate the launch of complex new services for Conax customers,” said Conor Ryan, Vice President of marketing at SmarDTV.
