    It’s generally a slot/sensor where a plastic card with a chip of some kind that can be inserted/waved to allow access to something restricted such as a computer or building.

    Betacrypt 2 is an encryption system designed to protect subscription television content on digital broadcasting.

    I’m assuming you’re shopping for digital TV cable/satellite boxes. A smart card reader with betacrypt 2 embedded would only be needed if specifically noted by your TV provider.
