ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corporation in the Philippines has selected Irdeto Access' PIsys to secure pay TV content to more than 150,000 set-top boxes in North America and Australia.
Designed for large operators, Irdeto PIsys is a large-scale modular content security system that will allow ABS-CBN to deliver its pay TV offering to customers securely by satellite. The company will receive delivery of the first shipment of 50,000 smart cards before the end of 2004.
ABS-CBN's northern California uplink is now its international satellite platform. As a result, it has migrated its direct-to-home platform in Australia to Irdeto Access, meaning Irdeto PIsys will also protect content for more than 20,000 of ABS-CBN’s subscribers in Australia.
