NDS supplying CA for Kabel BW CI Plus

NDS is supplying the conditional access technology for German cable operator Kabel BW’s CI Plus offering.

Kabel BW launched CI Plus at the beginning of the month, enabling viewers with compatible TVs to view its digital services without the need for a set-top box. The module is based on NDS’s VideoGuard CA system.

Yves Padrines, NDS vice-president and general manager EMEA said: “As one of Germany’s largest cable operators Kabel BW are in a great position to expand the reach of their service to further devices. With a quality content offering, their new CI Plus modules ensure that an ever increasing number of people have access to their platform. We are proud to be supporting Kabel BW in this initiative, and look forward to continuing to support them in future developments.”
