A Newly Engineered Cardless Security Platform for the Future of Video The support cost and frustration of black screens are major issues for video service operators. Limitations in broadcast security solutions also cause concerns about cycle times and bandwidth, but broadcasters often feel that migrating to a new cardless security solution is overwhelming and fear vendor lock-in. That is why Verimatrix is launching a newly engineered cardless security platform for the future of video — VCAS™ 5 for DVB. VCAS 5 for DVB provides a futureproof revenue security architecture as the pay-TV industry undergoes rapid transformation, giving video service operators a competitive edge in multiscreen services.

As the pioneer of cardless broadcast security, Verimatrix offers deep expertise and proven processes of migrating one-way network operators to hybrid platforms. Beyond offering the highest levels of broadcast security available on the market today, VCAS 5 for DVB incorporates these capabilities: • No black screens — Instant set-top box key and entitlement provisioning plus recovery ensures that subscribers have a connected always-on experience. This is especially important with new set-top setup or after a period of inactivity from the set-top. • Optimized bandwidth utilization — Highly efficient key distribution speeds bootup times, and has been integrated into a single headend for multiple network types, reducing operational overhead. • Comprehensive chipset integration — Full integration with the industry’s most comprehensive list of leading system-on-chip (SoC) vendors minimizes the attack surface, offers flexible chipset selection, reduces integration costs, and enables two-way network functionality. • Cloud-ready design for reliable and cost-efficient operations.
