This white paper looks at the evolving needs of pay-TV service providers as their growing multiscreen distribution strategies create increasing complexity in their content protection systems.
It highlights the four key drivers that are causing pay-TV companies to reconsider their existing CAS/DRM architectures, and explains the reasons for moving toward a more unified approach that streamlines the implementation and operation of content security across multiple networks and devices.
Those key drivers are:
- Rationalize Legacy
- Rationalizing multiple security clients drives efficiency & consistency across all services
- Ensure Adaptive Security
- The ability to support the best possible end-to-end security on every device is key to driving service growth
- Be Ready for 4K
- “Enhanced Content” (Ultra HD, HDR) Is coming and it’s driving increased security requirements
- Reach Every Device
- Efficiently supporting open CE devices is critical to success
