New advanced CAM for Ziggo

ZiggoHQ+logoNeotion and Quantis Electronics BV have teamed up to launch a new advanced CAM for the Dutch cable operator Ziggo.

The CI Plus 1.3 product is ready for Ziggo’s interactive offer, launched in late spring on its set-top boxes.

The VOD service can also be received without a set-top box in combination with an advanced TV set approved by Ziggo and adjustments in the Ziggo network.

All CAM ITV will be distributed by Quantis Electronics BV in the Netherlands.

Speaking about the launch, Stéphanie Bizouerne, sales director at Neotion, said: “This project has been a great cooperation for Neotion thanks to Ziggo technical expertise and their willingness to push CAM technology. We are also thankful for Quantis support during the whole project and we are convinced that it will be a success on the market.”

Apart from the Neotion CAM, there is also a version available from SMiT.

For the moment, the VOD service is not yet available on the advanced CAMs; a roll-out is expected to happen sometime later this year. Ziggo will publish a list of TV sets that are compatible for use with the new CAM and will give access to the interactive services with a STB.
