NDS Group plc, a News Corporation company and a leading provider of technology solutions for digital pay TV has announced Korea Digital Media Center (KDMC) selected NDS to provide key technology for its digital and interactive cable TV network.

NDS VideoGuard conditional access will provide the integral network security for the pay-TV operations. In order to be OpenCable compliant, KDMC also utilizes the NDS VideoGuard CableCard module in the set-top box.

According to an official release, KDMC is NDC's third customer in the Korea cable TV market.

KDMC, owned by the Taekwang Group, provides services to more than 30 system operators (SOs) across South Korea and reaches over 2 million subscribers. The subscribers are currently receiving an analog service, however KDMC plans to transition to digital and interactive broadcasting services for all subscribers.

NDS Asia Pacific vice president and general manager Sue Taylor has been quoted in the company release as saying, "NDS has invested significant resources and capital into developing a fully OCAP compliant conditional access system with a CableCard module. KDMC is now the third Korean MSO to select NDS technology, which gives NDS the leading position in the Korean cable market. We look forward to working together with KDMC to launch the digital operations, and offer new digital and interactive services to Korean cable TV viewers."
