iWedia upgrades Teatro CI host software

iwedia_logoiWedia has upgraded its Teatro CI Host Software to be compatible with CI Plus 1.4.

The Teatro CI host software now gives full support to CI Plus 1.4.2 and has been precertified on a reference platform using the official test suite and test materials.

It is a standalone software component, designed to be integrated within the software of the target device, and can be complemented by other software components of iWedia’s product portfolio – for example the Teatro TV Browser, which gives support to HbbTV 2.

“CI Plus 1.4.2 is a breakthrough for pay TV operators as the enhancements it brings allow them to get from a CAM the same benefits they used to get from a STB,” said Hervé Creff, VP marketing at iWedia.

“The specification will become mandatory in September this year and device makers shall get ready for that date. Integrating Teatro CI Host Software, a robust, reliable, and pre certified software component is definitely a secure way to achieve this objective.”

With CI Plus 1.4.2, pay TV operators can now offer a Conditional Access Module (CAM) on which the operator can store its own HbbTV 2 user interface and application.

It also supports delivery of video services over IP (unicast OTT or multicast managed IPTV), and multi-stream management for dual tuner configurations.
