Verimatrix, the specialist in securing multi-screen digital TV services, has announced that YOU SCOD18, a leading Indian Multi System Operator, has selected the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) architecture to provide revenue security for its new digital cable service. YOU SCOD18 Networking is a joint venture between YOU Broadband and Cable India. YOU Broadband India and cable operators in Mumbai selected VCAS 3 to fuel its analogue-to-digital transition due to its unique ability to combine all required conditional access system (CAS) functionality together with the interactivity of an IP-based network via a single robust security solution.
YOU SCOD18’s new digital cable service offers subscribers access to more than 200 channels, including the largest set of regional channels and local movie channels, and the MSO plans to add VoD services in the very near future. The Verimatrix cardless security solution is able to secure live and interactive content delivery via a single security head-end, reducing OPEX and CAPEX as the operator expands its services.
