SMiT and Philips Professional Display Solutions have partnered to launch the first conditional access module to feature the VSecure encryption system.
The VSecure encryption system is a patented and proprietary Digital Rights Management System, originally launched in 2008 and now effectively the de facto standard for encryption technology in the European professional TV market.
Approved by all major content providers the VSecure system is owned by Philips Professional Display Solutions and allows encryption and protection from content copying over any RF or IP based medium. A wide range of head-end providers supports the VSecure standard.
Commenting on the new CAM module Robert Bartelds, director of product for Philips professional TVs, said: ‘This is a great example of a successful project that combines the skills of a number of companies who are each the best in their field. VSecure is already the standard for DRM in Europe, the new CAM module will extend the system’s reach and finally allow content in locations where DRMs were traditionally not available.”
The new VSecure CAM module has made its debut at IBC (SMiT D86, Hall 1) and is available generally from the middle of this month.
