Verimatrix to introduce VCAS IPTV-for-cable solution
Verimatrix will launch VCAS, its latest content security solution for cable IPTV, at IBC2007.
Cable IPTV offers cable operators a rapid response to increasing demand for HD and on-demand services, while reducing the cost of advanced set-top box (STB) deployment.
IP technologies are recognized as the key solution for reclaiming bandwidth and broadening service offerings on limited-capacity cable plants. VCAS for cable IPTV provides a secure solution to deliver these next-generation video services.
The product leverages a CMTS Bypass solution, which converts an existing cable system to an asymmetric IP network for IPTV services. The Verimatrix VCAS offers software-based content protection and fulfills the FCC's separable security mandate. The solution works both with the U.S. DOCSIS and EuroDOCSIS standards.
