Thomson announced that its DCI1500G cable set-top box is deployable on the network of Kabel Deutschland, Germany's leading cable operator, and has been certified compliant by Pay-TV operator Premiere. Thomson will begin rolling out the DCI1500G model to cable subscribers in the first quarter of 2006.

Thomson says its DCI1500G offers KDG cable customers a cost-effective and value-added set-top box and will help the transition to digital cable TV in Germany, which is due to be completed by 2010 as mandated by the German government.

Frederic Kurkjian, vice president of the worldwide cable business activity within Thomson's Systems and Equipment Division, said, "With some 10 million homes connected in Germany, KDG is Europe's largest network operator and has exciting and ambitious plans to deliver digital services to their customer base. As a leading global provider of triple-play-over-cable solutions, Thomson is ideally positioned to help KDG deliver on this vision."

Responding to the content protection concerns of European broadband operators, the DCI1500 features Nagravision's(TM) CAK6.0G digital security platform and conditional access to protect against hacking and piracy. The set-top box also features access to free and Pay-TV programs, home cinema-quality audio and a 7-day electronic program guide. The unit comes with three language options -- German, English and Turkish -- and offers parental control channel blocking with a pin-code system.
