Evolution Digital and Conax have partnered to develop a multi-stream CableCARD (M-Card) specific to the North American cable market and have been awarded qualification by CableLabs. The new M-Card is designed to meet OpenCable CableCARD Interface 2.0 specifications and will be marketed specifically as the Evolution M-Card powered by Conax Content Security.
The M-Card will be marketed under the Evolution brand through an
exclusive OEM partnership with Evolution,” said Geir Bjørndal, EVP sales & marketing, Conax, in a statement.
The M-Card is interoperable with any CableCARD TV or set-top box certified by CableLabs. The M-Card is an alternative for small to medium size independent operators looking to deploy a security solution as they go all-digital and launch more premium services.
“Our focus as a company has been to provide low-cost digital solutions to the North American independent cable operators,” said Brent Smith, president of Evolution Digital in a statement.
