GS Group takes over smartcard production for Tricolor TV

Stitched PanoramaRussian technology provider GS Group has begun producing smartcards for leading pay TV operator Tricolor TV from its Gusev, Kaliningrad region facility.

According to GS Group, its Digital Television Systems subsidiary will start releasing access cards produced at the Technopolis GS facility for Tricolor TV from December, following a €2.5 investment in the plant.

Tricolor TV previously purchased access cards from an other supplier, which also programmed the pay TV access chips on the cards. The process will now be fully provided by Digital Television Systems, with about three million units expected to be produced next year.
