SHENZHEN, China — Shenzhen State Micro Technology (SMiT), a leading official CAM manufacturer, today initiated supply of their Conax CI+ Chipset Pairing CAM (SECURE PLUS CAM) to VOLIA — the number one cable operator in Ukraine.

SECURE PLUS CAM is fully compliant with the CI Plus Specification V 1.2 standard, which is specified by the CI+ Forum. After receiving full certification with Conax, and extensive field testing on a variety of iDTV sets, SMiT successfully received approval from Viola Cable.

“SMiT is honored to supply VOLIA this highly secure solution. Implementing SECURE PLUS CAM enables operators to be better protected from piracy and illegal access to their content. It also enables operators to increase their subscriber number by enabling end-users who already own an iDTV to access their content. End-users ultimately receive a more enjoyable experience due to the lack of remote controls and cables that the user-friendly combination of iDTV & CAM brings. This successful solution has the ability to benefit all players in the eco-system. SMiT will continue to lead the development of more and more CI+ CAMs in different markets,” said Stephen He, VP of SMiT.

“VOLIA today is a leader in digital TV technologies implementation in Ukraine. Viola once again proves that they are a trendsetter. We aim to provide maximum convenience for our clients and the highest quality of service. In our opinion, using CAMs for iDTVs fully meets these goals. Additionally, migration to CI+ standard provides extra protection of the content and, as a result, the company’s revenues.Additional features of this standard will allow Volia to broaden and enhance our service offerings to subscribers owning iDTVs,” said Volia’s President and Chairman of the Management Board, Mr. Sergey Boyko.
