Decoding encrypted channels: Using PROMAX patented technology

The TV EXPLORER II+ includes a CAM slot that allows decoding encrypted channels.

The use of encryption systems is widely spread in digital pay TV. The operator encodes the signals and the subscriber can get a Smart Card giving access to those channels.

Today there are solutions to use MPEG-4 decoders implemented in the size of a CAM card. In these cases, using the suitable smart card, it is possible to decode MPEG-4 programs.
