Scandinavian broadcaster chooses Latens for IPTV security

Latens is providing security technology for Alcom as a safeguard against piracy. Alcom’s ADSL network reaches 98 percent of the population of Scandinavia’s Alcom Islands.

Alcom is to multicast MPEG-2 single program transport stream content encoded as MPEG-2 (SD and HD) and MPEG-4/AVC video using IP streamers to IP set-top receivers provided by Kreatel. The middleware for the Alcom system is the Northport Modulution.

TV content will be encrypted using the Latens Stream Encryption Engine fed from an Anevia streamer. The Latens VOD Encryption Engine, with both VOD and TV services protected by Latens FCAS, will encrypt the VOD content provided by the Anevia VOD streamers.
