HANOI, Vietnam, SEOUL, Korea and CHESEAUX, Switzerland — VTVCab, Vietnam’s leading cable operator, SmarDTV, a Kudelski Group (SIX:KUD.S) company and Samsung Electronics, announced today that they will combine to bring to market an innovative solution to provide access to VTVCab PayTV services. VTVCab subscribers can now enjoy high quality content directly on their new Samsung Cable TV model without using a set-top box by simply inserting the newly developed CI Plus Instant Access conditional access module (CAM) from VTVCab. This CAM replaces the role of a traditional set-top box and provides an attractive alternative to new subscribers as they migrate to digital services.

“We hugely appreciate the trust and support shown by VTVCab to promote and deploy our CAM solution. SmarDTV Instant Access modules ensure that channels are directly accessible on integrated Digital Televisions (iDTVs) using one single TV remote control and that neither extra cables nor additional power is required,” commented Gregory Laloy, APAC Sales Director of SmarDTV. “We are delighted also to partner with Samsung to promote this product which has been highly successful in enabling analog to digital migration in the Europe market.”

“VTVCab is pleased to work with Samsung and SmarDTV, two world leaders in the Digital TV industry. Using this integrated digital TV + CAM combination gives us more flexibility to promote our attractive content in High Definition (HD) and future 4K compression,” said Nam Bui, CTO of VTVCab.

Customers buying a Samsung DVB-C iDTV Model J5520 will get a voucher which will entitle them to obtain a CAM from VTVcab containing a smartcard and a free 6-month subscription of HD package which provides them with instant access to the VTVCab services when installed in the TV,” said My Nguyen, Head of Samsung Vietnam AV Marketing Communication.
