This Irdeto CAM happens to be the sixth CAM type that my company decided to provide, but beyond my quick CAM count the most important thing to say about this Irdeto CAM is that it support the two current Irdeto 1 and 2 conditional access systems and no doubt will work just fine with whatever they do next.
The most interesting other thing to say about this Irdeto CAM is that if you click on the photo to bring up the big version you will be able to read the text "Any and all modifications prohibited and prosecutable". Now while not all these CAM will arrive with this text, when I already have a second version without it, but since other CAMs on this page do not come with such a dire warning then you have to wonder why this CAM does?
The answer to that question is that during the early days of digital TV people wanted to get their Irdeto CAMs to do more than what they did by default. So certain traders went about modifying the early verions of these Irdeto CAMs to create CAMs like the Irdeto AllCAM and the Irdeto FreeCAM. That if you know your CAM history was the first baby steps that led on to the creation of the multi-system CAMs like the Magic CAMs and the following Matrix CAMs.
The Irdeto Access company certainly did not approve of these unofficial CAM modifications, when shock horror these modified CAMs could even be used for that dreaded P-word application. So they fought back and made their CAMs a lot harder to modify and where they printed this message on these CAMs to make clear their position.
These days Irdeto Access is free to remove this warning label, when people wanting multi-system CAMs now have their own CAM types, which means that they now leave these CAMs alone. No doubt that already explains my other Irdeto CAMs without this warning, but then I would not miss out on a CAM history lesson by scanning the other type now would I?
In any case these Irdeto supporting CAMs I now supply are as official as you can get. So you can get direct Irdeto Access support if required and where this Irdeto CAM will update its own firware using the Automatic Update feature during your normal Irdeto service viewing.
These CAMs should prove quite popular when more than a few services make use if the Irdeto conditional access system. So if you are looking for a CI CAM with Irdeto 1 and 2 support then here is the CAM that Irdeto Access want you to have.
