SmarDTV provides SmarCAM-3.5 conditional access modules to M7 Group to support its pay-TV services in the Netherlands and Belgium

CHESEAUX, Switzerland — SmarDTV, a Kudelski Group (SIX:KUD.S) company, today announced that M7 Group, the European provider of satellite services which operates CanalDigitaal, TV Vlaanderen and TéléSAT brands amongst others, has deployed its latest generation of conditional access modules (CAM) in its network in the Netherlands and Belgium.

SmarDTV’s SmarCAM-3.5 modules embed the latest generation of the NAGRA conditional access system, ensuring the highest security for all channels of M7 Group. Thanks to the SarCAM-3.5 module, these channels are directly accessible on integrated Digital televisions (iDTVs) with the original TV remote control. SCART or HDMI cables or power leads are no longer needed. In addition, the channels are accessible on a large variety of set-top- boxes sold in the retail market in the Netherlands and Belgium.

“We have been successfully collaborating with SmarDTV for many years and are delighted to introduce a new CAM to ensure our content remains well protected and easily accessible on different retail devices. These new modules provide our subscribers with an attractive solution that can be used with iDTVs equipped with satellite tuners which are becoming more and more popular in our markets,” said Hans Troelstra, Chief Operational Officer of M7 Group.

“M7 Group is a long-time valued customer and we are delighted to be able to provide our latest CAM to them,” said Eric Chaubert, CEO of SmarDTV. “The SmarCAM-3.5 module brings many benefits to M7 subscribers including being non-intrusive, very simple to install without any new cabling and remaining invisible once installed.”
