South Korea’s CJ Hellovision is Latest Service Provider to Launch Ultra HD Services
Alticast, a global partner for the delivery of media entertainment, has been selected to provide the security for the ambitious rollout of Ultra High Definition (Ultra HD) video services by CJ Hellovision, South Korea’s largest cable television operator which now offers both live and on-demand Ultra HD programming to all of its more than 4.3 million subscribers.
“Ensuring the security of our Ultra HD services is a major concern and the reason we selected Alticast to supply the critical conditional access component,” said Hong-Ik Kim, Smart Engineering Team Manager at CJ Hellovision. “Their AltiProtect CAS not only ensures that our Ultra HD programming is delivered securely, its outstanding performance, interoperability and security allow us to easily expand our multiscreen services to new devices.”
“This deployment of Ultra HD is the latest example of CJ Hellovision’s history of constant innovation and validation of the AltiProtect solution and its capabilities,” said Mansoo Han, Chief Marketing Officer of Alticast. “Securing content continues to be a critical concern for service providers worldwide as they offer Ultra HD and other services to an ever increasing array of devices inside and outside the home. Our AltiProtect solution specifically addresses service providers’ most demanding security requirements on both STBs and consumer-owned devices.”
Alticast’s proven AltiProtect CAS solution enables service providers to ensure their programming content is securely delivered and viewed only by authorized subscribers. Proven in major deployments, AltiProtect is currently installed on millions of STBs deployed by multiple cable operators worldwide and is ideal for both legacy STBs and next-generation devices that are based on either hardware-enabled security (e.g. CableCARD) or non-hardware security. Complementing AltiProtect is the AltiProtect Downloadable and Exchangeable framework (XCAS), which allows operators to seamlessly and remotely swap CAS systems. This reduces costs by eliminating truck rolls and preserving investments in legacy STBs while also speeding the introduction of new devices.
