NEW DELHI: Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) has been deployed by the Pakistani telecommunications provider WorldCall Telecom for DVB to secure its digital cable (DVB-C) network and to support the transition to broadcast-hybrid service delivery.
VCAS for DVB replaces WorldCall's current security system, according to a Verimatrix release quoted by European site telecompaper.com.
VCAS for DVB is designed to secure WorldCall's linear content library and associated revenue for broadcast services over its DVB-C network, including WorldCall Cable TV services, which offers a diverse mix of drama, thriller, action, romance, news and documentaries over 300 channels.
The service is managed via redundant head-ends in Karachi and Lahore and six regional headends in other cities of Pakistan. It is delivered using SandMartin BVA3006 HD set top boxes.
The Oman Telecommunications Company (Omantel) will also be using the Verimatrix solution for supporting the transition to broadcast-hybrid service delivery.
The cardless VCAS system supports future network expansion, including the addition of more advanced and flexible services, such as over-the-top (OTT) video delivery.
