The Finnish Cable Television Association has awarded Cable Ready certification to TechniSat Force Digital’s TeVeMaster C1 digital cable receiver. The certification was conducted by Labwise Finland and covers both the NorDig Unified 1.0.2 specifications and requirements from the Finish Cable Broadcasting Network. The digital cable receiver integrated Conax smart card reader as used on the network.
The Cable Ready certification was introduced as part of the digital switchover process, which is scheduled to be completed in August 2007. The testing procedure under both laboratory conditions and on real broadcast networks includes tuning, scanning and SI management.
TechniSat Force Digital has taken over the activities of Force AS, providing the TechniSat Digital Group with R&D facilities in Oslo, and sales representation in Norway and Denmark.
