GlobeCast, a subsidiary of France Telecom and a global content management and delivery company, has selected the Irdeto Digital TV content security solution to secure its satellite TV content distribution service worldwide.
Due to rapid growth in its digital channel distribution service, GlobeCast has expanded from Irdeto's M-Crypt control system to the Irdeto PIsys control system, a more comprehensive and scalable system. Both control systems use the same smart cards and set-top boxes, allowing for a seamless upgrade with no need to change equipment already in the field.
The PIsys control system offers the highest level of professional conditional access for securing any kind of content distributed via television broadcast, mobile or broadband. PIsys easily scales to support subscriber bases from thousands to millions and its FlexiFlash smart card update feature ensures functionality upgrades and security updates can be done without the usual requirement for a smart card swap. Optional modules are also available to keep pace with an operator's changing business objectives, including Ordered Pay Per View, Impulse Pay Per View and multi-room functionality.
