iWedia, which provides software solutions for TV devices, has upgraded its Teatro CI Host Software towards CI Plus 1.4 compliance. With CI Plus 1.4.2, Pay TV operators can now offer a Conditional Access Module (CAM) where the operator can store its own HbbTV 2 User Interface and application, and which supports delivery of video services over IP (unicast OTT or multicast managed IPTV), and multi-stream management for dual tuner configurations.
“CI Plus 1.4.2 is a breakthrough for Pay TV operators as the enhancements it brings will allow them to get from a CAM the same benefits they used to get from a STB,” says Hervé Creff, VP Marketing at iWedia. “The specification will become mandatory in September and device makers will 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,” he added.
