The Hong Kong-headquartered SMIT Corporation will soon join hands with an Indian direct-to-home (DTH) player and a major consumer durable maker to offer set top box-free viewing of pay channels, said an official.
"By June, we plan to launch our product tying up with a DTH player and a television maker. Our conditional access module (CAM) will enable people with integrated digital televisions (IDTV) to view television channels without a set top box (STB)," Himanshu Sharma, country manager, India at SMIT Corporation told IANS.
Declining to share the names of the DTH layer and the television maker, Sharma did not confirm or deny that the consumer durable maker is of Korean origin.
He said SMIT Corporation is a global player in the CAM domain selling its products in Europe and other markets out of its Chinese factory.
"The product will be like a giant sized SIM card. It will have to be inserted behind IDTVs and the DTH/cable operators can programme the channels that could be watched," Sharma said.
