ViewRight Professional

Bulk Decryption of IP Encapsulated MPEG-2 Transport Streams

The Verimatrix ViewRight Professional client is a robust package of portable embedded code that 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. ViewRight Professional functionality is integrated in a number of partner hardware offerings to provide a complete solution for IP broadcast redistribution or monitoring.

A ViewRight Professional enabled receiver is a multi-channel capable decryption appliance operating on VCAS encrypted Multicast IP streams. It is provisioned and authenticated as a special class of ViewRight client device to a (wholesale) VCAS system. Decrypted content, subject to receiver entitlements is output to a downstream redistribution or monitoring system in IP or analog video format. ViewRight Professional operates without the need for smart cards or DVB Common Interface hardware, and with a capacity of up to 100 simultaneous channels per receiver.

ViewRight Professional is a key enabler in two main areas of operational deployment: enhancing the flexibility offered by the Verimatrix IPTV Wholesale/Retail architecture, and enabling automated monitoring in IP head-end deployments.

Suitable hardware platforms supporting ViewRight Professional are currently available from specialist partners AppearTV, Harmonic and IDC. These platforms combine a high performance descrambler module, a fully hardened implementation of ViewRight client security functionality, SNMP monitoring and remote management. Dependent on vendor, configurations offer a variety of input and output formats and support descrambling of streams that are protected by AES-128 (both ECB and CBC modes) and DVB Common Scrambling Algorithm (DVB-CSA) standard implementations.
