ANGA Cable 2012 – Cologne. Swiss premium TV provider Teleclub is introducing CI Plus modules based on the NDS VideoGuard CA system and HD PVR functionality with the addition of an approved external hard drive.
CI Plus allows consumer electronics manufacturers to launch a wide range of devices, such as integrated digital TV-sets and set-top boxes that can provide access to Teleclub content through plug-in CI Plus modules. The recently launched modules enable access to all Teleclub programming including HD channels. The modules are being supplied in cooperation with select device manufacturers.
Dr Wilfried Heinzelmann, member of the board of Teleclub, said: “Our new CI Plus and HD PVR-ready solutions give us the opportunity to reach new target markets and introduce new functionality for our subscribers. CI Plus modules provide users with greater flexibility in their hardware choice – and with that more ways to enjoy our service. By employing robust content protection from NDS, we are fulfilling the security requirements of our content partners to ensure that their content remains protected.”
Yves Padrines, NDS VP and general manager EMEA, added: “We are pleased to be enabling Teleclub to extend the reach of their cable platform to embrace further CE devices. This deployment provides Teleclub with the opportunity to securely and flexibly meet consumer demand, in the confidence that the platform remains secure. We look forward to continuing to support Teleclub in future deployments to enhance their service.”
Teleclub currently employs VideoGuard Conditional Access from NDS.
