SES Americom has selected Irdeto Access' content protection technology to secure the distribution of programming and enterprise services aboard its AMC-4 satellite.
SES Americom has integrated the Irdeto M-Crypt conditional access (CA) system into its customer transmission center based in Woodbine, Md. This center is one of several SES Americom uplink and communications facilities relied upon by the broadcast, cable, VSAT, business television and broadband Internet services industries.
The Irdeto M-Crypt CA system is engineered specifically for small- to medium-size pay-media operators requiring digital encryption of content for cable, satellite or terrestrial transmission. A user-friendly CA system that allows operators to grow according to their business needs, Irdeto M-Crypt can be upgraded smoothly to Irdeto Access' large-scale CA system, Irdeto sys (PIsys), without the need to change smart cards or set-top boxes (STBs) in the field.
Irdeto M-Crypt offers the same level of security as Irdeto Access' large-scale CA solution but operates on a Windows 2000 platform for simplified, PC-based control and maintenance.
