The Teatro CI host software now gives full support to CI Plus 1.4.2 and has been pre–certified 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.
