BISS-CA has been developed with network equipment vendors ATEME and Nevion, and real-time entitlement management for content streams over any network.
It allows media rights holders to grant and revoke receiving rights in real-time and includes the necessary mechanisms to ensure piracy traceability with technologies such as watermarking.
“This is a much needed technology that fills a long-standing gap”, says Dr Hans Hoffmann, Senior Manager at EBU Technology & Innovation. “With BISS-CA, business partners can now exchange live content, regardless of which vendor systems they operate.”
The EBU BISS (Basic Interoperable Scrambling Standard) protocol was first issued in 2002 to enable secure and interoperable stream exchange over satellite. It is a widely adopted standard for secured B2B transmissions.
The BISS-CA standard will be demonstrated at supporting vendors’ booths at NAB 2018 and on the EBU booth at IBC 2018.
