Wednesday, July 29, 2015
Vietnam Cable Television (VTVCab), SmarDTV and Samsung have joined hands to boost integrated Digital Televisions (iDTVs) and VTV services in Vietnam.
VTVcab has integrated SmartDTV’s Conax certified CI Plus Instant Access conditional access module (CAM) on its smartcard which enables VTVcab subscribers to access content without using a set-top-box on iDTV sets.
VTVcab and Samsung have been conducting co-promotion and branding activities for VTV services. As a promotional offer, a voucher will be offered to those who purchase Samsung DVB-C iDTV Model J5520; voucher can be redeemed to obtain a CAM from VTVcab containing a smartcard and a free six-month subscription of HD package.
“We hugely appreciate the trust and support shown by VTVcab to promote and deploy our CAM solution. SmarDTV Instant Access modules ensure that channels are directly accessible on integrated Digital Televisions (iDTVs) using one single TV remote control and that neither extra cables nor additional power is required,” said Gregory Laloy, APAC Sales Director of SmarDTV.
“VTVcab is pleased to work with Samsung and SmarDTV, two world leaders in the Digital TV industry. Using this integrated digital TV + CAM combination gives us more flexibility to promote our attractive content in High Definition (HD) and future 4K compression,” said Nam Bui, CTO of VTVCab.
“Samsung is delighted to work with VTVcab the leading Cable Operator in Vietnam, to bring users the best experience in HD quality picture in the country. Customers buying a Samsung DVB-C iDTV Model J5520 will get a voucher which will entitle them to obtain a CAM from VTVcab containing a smartcard and a free 6-month subscription of HD package which provides them with instant access to the VTVcab services when installed in the TV,” said My Nguyen, Head of Samsung Vietnam AV Marketing Communication.
