SMiT Announces Successful Development of Dynamic Sentinel Cardless CAM with Viaccess-Orca

AMSTERDAM — SMiT Corporation (SMiT), a global leader in design and development of conditional access modules (CAMs), has partnered with Viaccess-Orca (VO), a global leader in the protection and enhancement of content services, to launch a CAM fully integrated with VO’s Dynamic Sentinel Cardless solution. SMiT is the first CAM provider to achieve VO’s certification for its Dynamic Sentinel Cardless solution.

The Dynamic Sentinel Cardless CAM includes Viaccess-Orca’s latest ACS library, and is fully compatible with CI plus 1.3 standards. Fully integrated with advanced security software, embedded mechanisms with SMiT’s newest chipset SM1670, and no smartcard interface, the Dynamic Sentinel Cardless CAM ensures the security of interactive TV communications. In addition, these security measures enhance the operators’ ability to monitor and stop piracy. End-users can now access premium Pay-TV content without the need of both a set-top box, and smartcard. As a result, TV operators can save revenue on smartcard production, and delivery in addition to post-sales service.

“For more than 20 years, Viaccess-Orca CAS has earned the trust of operators and content owners around the world. By partnering with SMiT we are committed to provide a best-in-class security system,” said François Moreau de Saint Martin, CEO at Viaccess-Orca. “Cardless security solutions are gaining significant momentum in the market due to their flexibility and robust security techniques. I believe that this innovative and consumer-oriented product will be a great success in the market.”

“The introduction of advanced dynamic sentinel cardless CAM presents a new strategy and innovation in CAM products,” said Mr. Hongyu Shuai, President of SMiT. “We are excited to be chosen as Viaccess-Orca’s partner on such an important new product that can help make digital pay TV subscription simple and affordable. SMiT has supplied millions of CAM products to Viaccess-Orca’s customers in the past eight years and looks forward to maintain our close relationship.”
