SCM Microsystems, a provider of smart card reader technology and conditional access modules, has joined the SmartRight initiative.

The SmartRight initiative, already supported by Thomson, Canal+ Technologies, Gemplus, Micronas, Nagravision, Pioneer, SchlumbergerSema, and STMicroelectronics, is a copy protection system for digital home networks, which is combined with conditional access systems (CAS) or digital rights management (DRM) systems, and provides an end-to-end solution for the protection of digital content.

SmartRight is a global system deployable in any region of the world. It accepts content from any kind of source, including free-to-air and pre-recorded content. The specification defines a common syntax for SmartRight content to ensure interoperability and defines a simple application program interface (API) with current main CAS and DRM systems. The system is network security neutral and may either co-operate with these systems or be fully transparent to them.
