GVT TV deploys Cisco's Videoscape VideoGuard Smart Card
Sep 25, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Cisco has announced that GVT TV has deployed the Cisco Videoscape VideoGuard Smart Card to protect its video content transmitted via satellite in Brazil.
This is a highly secure encryption system protected against Cardsharing or Control Word Sharing (a fault in the DVB - Digital Video Broadcasting system), which stops the broadcaster's signal from being transmitted illegally.
Cisco's VideoGuard solution is part of Videoscape Unity, Cisco's platform for delivering and monetizing a new generation of compelling, differentiated video experiences. It helps protect content and allows GVT to reduce the bandwidth employed to transmit encryption over a multi-channel, high-definition platform, which reduces operating costs. GVT can use the Cisco solution to broadcast nationwide.
"Part of the NDS acquisition, the VideoGuard offering for GVT reinforces Cisco's investment in a globally recognized technology ", said Rodrigo Dienstmann, leader at Cisco Brazil.
