SCM Microsystems has shipped the first 50,000 digital TV security modules to Turkish operator DIGITURK, under its agreement with Digital Platform A.S. of Istanbul.

The modules are used to decrypt premium sports content for DIGITURK subscribers both in Turkey as well as across Europe. DIGITURK is the first and the only digital direct-to-home satellite network in Turkey and, with 850,000 subscribers, the biggest Turkish pay-television operator. DIGITURK offers subscribers content packages that range from full broadcast services to specialized standalone content, such as “Lig TV” soccer league programming. To decrypt Lig TV content, subscribers may purchase a proprietary set-top box or request a removable security module that fits into the Common Interface (CI) slot found on many set-top receivers, which are readily available in electronics stores throughout Europe. SCMs security modules for DIGITURK utilize the Philips Cryptoworks security system, which DIGITURK is reselling to existing and new subscribers in Turkey and throughout its satellite footprint in Europe and the Middle East. The SCM security modules comply with the Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) Common Interface (CI) standard.
