We’ve talked in the past about how more valuable 4K content and the diversity of consumer viewing devices is causing operators to rethink existing content security paradigms, but what’s important to note is how we’ve put our money where our mouth is.
We’ve taken the lead in providing operators with new security solutions that have the flexibility to protect both 4K and existing HD and SD content across multiple devices, including set-top boxes, streaming sticks and boxes, tablets and smartphones. When CJ Hellovision launched the world’s first deployment of UHD to more than 4.3 million homes in South Korea, they turned to Alticast for their security needs.
This week, we notched another highlight: Notification that we’ve earned a spot on the short list of finalists for a Best Content Protection Technology award at IBC. The experts who judged Cable & Satellite International’s CSI Awards singled out our AltiProtect UHD for recognition as one of the most outstanding solutions for helping the industry protect the integrity of content delivery.
We can’t say for sure what the judges liked about AltiProtect UHD, but we’d like to think we caught their eyes for our ability to use market-proven cryptographic technology to maximize content security and operational efficiency via three key elements:
- AltiProtect UHD CAS, which uses AES 128 or better encryption algorithms to ensure optimal content protection;
- AltiProtect UHD DRM, which supports the multi-device environments that are prevalent in today’s television ecosystem; and
- AltiProtect Downloadable & Exchangeable Framework (AltiProtect D&E), which allows operators seamlessly to swap content protection systems to eliminate service calls and to accelerate the introduction of new devices.
If you’ll be at IBC, we’d be delighted to discuss AltiProtect UHD – or any of the other Alticast products or solutions that are driving value for the industry. You can find us at Stand 1F.36 throughout the show and at the CSI Awards September 9 – where we’ll hopefully be on stage accepting the Best Content Protection Technology trophy.
