M7 deploys latest SmarDTV CAMs in Belgium and Netherlands

Luxembourg-based pay TV provider M7 Group, which operates the Dutch CanalDigitaal and Belgian TV Vlaanderen and TéléSAT DTH services as well as the Skylink/CS Link service in the Czech Republic, is using the latest version of Kudelski-owned SmarDTV’s conditional access module to support delivery of services in the Netherlands and Belgium.

SmarDTV is supplying its SmarCAM-3.5 modules with Nagra conditional access to secure M7’s services on integrated digital TV sets without the need for a set-top box.

“We have been successfully collaborating with SmarDTV for many years and are delighted to introduce a new CAM to ensure our content remains well protected and easily accessible on different retail devices. These new modules provide our subscribers with an attractive solution that can be used with iDTVs equipped with satellite tuners which are becoming more and more popular in our markets,” said Hans Troelstra, chief operational officer of M7 Group.
