Korean op, NDS team on OpenCable deployment
Korea Digital Media Center (KDMC), Korea's largest MSO, said it will use the NDS Group VideoGuard conditional access system to support a digital network based on OpenCable specifications.
KDMC, which provides cable services to 2 million subs, will use removable NDS CableCARDs to provide network and service security.
The deal marks NDS' third cable win in Korea. NDS said it has completed interoperability testing with KDMC set-top suppliers such as Humax Co., LG Electronics and Samsung Electronics.
NDS said it shipped 9 million smart cards in fiscal Q1, extending its total to 48 million.
