Protect your assets from piracy
The global pay TV market including cable, satellite and IPTV is expected to reach 858.1 million at the end of 2012; that's a 5% year-on-year increment from 2011 according to ABI Research. Across the globe digitization, over-the-top (OTT) services and interactivity trends are reshaping this user-driven dynamic market space.
In this competitive market space, content service providers must be able to create an extensive offering of desirable, premium content in order to grow their subscriber base. In developing countries, this means transitioning from limited analog platforms to the rich service functionality provided by digital solutions. In advanced markets, where the digitization is firmly established, the focus shifts to the richness of the service offering. By continually introducing advanced services, such as personal video recording (PVR) and video-on-demand (VOD), and new packages, providers can enhance loyalty create additional revenue streams.
The key to getting premium content is security. In a world that exists under the constant threat of piracy, content owners are hard-pressed to protect their assets. New attacks that emulate or clone set-top-boxes (STBs), execute rights modification or create key-word sharing services are launched on a daily basis around the globe.
