AMSTERDAM, September 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — SMiT, the global-leading operation platform provider for secure distribution of paid content, presents the CI Plus v1.4 demo at IBC 2014.
The CI Plus v1.4 CAM demo includes new features such as the ability to route high-bandwidth IP streams through the CAM and the ability to control those IP streams. Other new features include extended CI Plus browser, the handling of multiple encrypted streams (multi stream), the new “Online Service Descriptor Table” (OSDT), and support for IP multicast. These new features enable the delivery of IPTV straight to television sets without the need for a set-top box.
Previous versions of the CI specifications do not include the facility to route IP-delivered content over the TS Interface. CI Plus v1.4 extends the routing and decryption of protected content delivered over IP to a network interface. This enables service providers and network operators to provide a single CAM that can receive and decrypt both broadcast and IP-delivered content offerings with a single CAM.
SMiT’s first CI Plus v1.4 CAM products will be ready in Q4 2015.
SMIT provides devices that enable secure digital content delivery for the pay TV industry, allowing authorized subscribers access to protected content on any device, any place, anytime. We are a global leader in the design and development of conditional access modules (CAMs), which enables the delivery of premium content to digital TVs without the need for a set-top-box (STB). Our CAMs are custom designed to meet the strict security requirements of each conditional access (CA) provider and the varied user-interface and compliance requirements of each pay TV operator.
