Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) hybrid architectures are becoming an important upgrade strategy for today’s broadcast operators to extend services and enhance revenues. CI+ enabled connected TVs enable such services in a cost-effective manner, and can support advanced robust cardless security solutions with the integrated Verimatrix/SMiT solution.
The IP connection enabled in the CI+ architecture, used in conjunction with a modern connected TV device, supports a fully hardened implementation of the Verimatrix ViewRight cardless security client. The combination of TVs and CI+ CAM enables a full client device implementation for DVB hybrid terrestrial and cable network architectures, offering a highly attractive alternative to a full STB deployment.
