Latens has unveiled the latest version of its cardless conditional access system (CAS) that the Belfast-based company says will be of particular benefit to operators running more than one delivery technology on their network.
The technology will be on display at Cable Congress in Brussels (March 3 -5).
CAS 5 is designed to work on cable, DTH, DTT, IP and hybrid networks. It dynamically detects how set-top boxes are connected to the CAS and then automatically allocates the required entitlements and permissions. It means that when an operator wasn’t to expand to other network types, such as moving from a one-way to a two-way network, there is no need to invest in a new CAS.
Latens CAS is fully DVB Simulcrypt compliant allowing the operator to run the CAS with another DVB Simulcrypt compliant CAS.
