Eurofins has been selected as the official test partner for the new CI Plus 2.0 standard.
The CI Plus standard is an enhanced security system that allows manufacturers, operators and broadcasters to deliver secure content on digital TV receivers via the Common Interface (CI) and Conditional Access Module (CAM). The next-gen CI Plus 2.0 specification adds a USB-form factor, whereby consumers can receive pay-TV services by leveraging USB-based CAMs.
“CI Plus is committed to providing consumers with easy access to secure, premium content on their TVs, and CI Plus 2.0 makes that even easier with its USB interface support,” said CI Plus LLP. “Based on our existing relationship, we’re confident Eurofins will help ensure a certified testing regime is easily accessible and take CI Plus 2.0 forward to market launch.”
“We are proud to be the exclusive CI Plus LLP approved test partner and look forward to providing a new test tool for CI Plus 2.0,” added Johan Craeybeckx, business line director, Eurofins Digital Testing International. “The CI Plus 2.0 USB interface provides an easy-to-use, familiar form factor for consumers, manufacturers and operators alike. Leveraging Eurofins’ automated test tools for the required testing of USB hosts and compatible-devices will streamline build processes and greatly reduce time to market.”
