SmarDTV provides SmarCAM-3.5 CI Plus conditional access modules to Telenet to support its pay-TV services in Belgium

CHESEAUX, Switzerland — SmarDTV, a Kudelski Group (SIX:KUD.S) company, today announced that the Belgian cable operator Telenet is launching, in June, a CI Plus conditional access module (CAM) in its network in Flanders and Brussels.

SmarDTV’s SmarCAM-3.5 modules embed the latest generation of the NAGRA conditional access system, ensuring the highest security for all Telenet channels. Thanks to the SmarCAM-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.

“The CI Plus module is an addition to our digital products that corresponds to the demand of TV subscribers, wanting a basic digital TV subscription without any extras. These modules provide our TV subscribers with an attractive solution that can be used with TV sets compliant with CI Plus Standard on the market since 2010,” said Laurent Van Tornhout, Telenet Director of TV Product Management.

“Telenet is a valued new customer and we are delighted to be able to provide our latest CAM to them,” said Conor Ryan, SmarDTV VP of Marketing. “The SmarCAM-3.5 module brings many benefits to Telenet subscribers including being non-intrusive, very simple to install without any new cabling and remaining invisible once installed.”
