French satellite TV platform, Fransat, has partnered with Neotion to unveil a CI+ 1.3 conditional access module (CAM) at IBC.
With the Neotion CI+ 1.3 CAM Fransat is able to provide access to its IP-based services straight to a connected television via a secure link between the module and Fransat HbbTV portal.
By using the Specific Application Support (SAS) resource, Fransat will be able to retrieve information from the CI+ 1.3 CAM and Fransat smart card to offer additional added-value services to users, including direct pay TV subscriptions on the TV and VoD services.
By expanding access to the Fransat Connect portal to users with connected TVs, Fransat is integrating TV viewing and on-demand services from both broadcast and broadband networks.
With the Neotion CI+ 1.3 CAM, Fransat is also ready to support the delivery of protected HEVC Ultra HD content on compatible devices.
Fransat said that through this technology advance, it is continuing to prioritise ease of use and convenience for its audience, while delivering the best TV user experience through hybrid satellite and IP-based services.
