China Digital TV To Install DTH Satellite Platform For CANTV
China Digital TV has been engaged to install a conditional access system, a subscriber management system, and electronic program guides on CANTV's DTH satellite platform to enhance the operator's IPTV network.
The DTH platform is expected to begin beta testing in the third quarter of 2010 and be fully operational in early 2011. It is expected to cover the entire territory of Venezuela, servicing more than 600,000 paying subscribers by 2015.
Tracy Yue, general manager of China Digital TV's overseas business, said: “We are delighted to win our first contract in Latin America, which shows the solid progress we are making in overseas market expansion. This encouraging achievement also demonstrates the strong demand for China Digital TV's products and services in emerging markets.”
Alfredo Munoz, manager of multimedia operations at CANTV, said: “We are excited to partner with China Digital TV, whose solutions have demonstrated great success in China, the world's largest TV market by viewership. China Digital TV's excellent security technology, anti-piracy solutions, and high-quality service enjoy a high reputation among industry players in the China market.”
