Extending DVB One-Way with
OTT and DVB-Hybrid Services

VCAS for DVB-Hybrid offers a novel approach to traditional broadcast content security by integrating OTT video services to a range of hybrid set-top boxes and mobile CE devices.


ViewRight DVB-CI Professional

Bulk Decryption of MPEG-2/DVB Transport Streams

The Verimatrix ViewRight DVB-CI Professional client implements the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS™) security functions within Professional Receiver equipment (a.k.a. Integrated Receiver Decoders or IRDs) in a pay-TV system. The ViewRight DVB-CI Professional functionality is implemented in a dedicated hardware conditional access module (CAM), together with a Verimatrix smart card, providing advanced content security for applications such as B2B video distribution and broadcast monitoring.

A ViewRight DVB-CI Professional enabled receiver is a multi-channel capable decryption appliance operating on DVB-CSA encrypted MPEG-2/DVB streams. It is provisioned and authenticated as a ViewRight client device to a VCAS for DVB head-end system. Decrypted content, subject to receiver entitlements, is output to a downstream redistribution or monitoring system in digital or analog video format. The current decryption capacity is 1-6 DVB services.

The dedicated ViewRight DVB-CI CAM module is manufactured by specialist partner SMiT (Shenzhen State Micro Technology Co. Ltd), a leading global designer and provider of CAM devices. This platform combines a high performance descrambler module with a hardened implementation of ViewRight client security functionality, supporting descrambling of streams that are protected by the DVB Common Scrambling Algorithm (DVB-CSA).
