CryptoGuard’s IPTV solution with superb scaling capability reduces the cost and time to market for establishing high-quality Multicast IPTV services on local networks for any size of operator. CryptoGuard provides a Core & Headend server with CAS and basic middleware including channel list and EPG data. This way of providing CAS and basic middleware reduces the STB cost and scales better than systems where a middleware server from a third-party provider is used. The solution offers a wide selection of STB’s, from pure zapper boxes to more advanced boxes supporting also Android and OTT services. With Android boxes it is possible to also add App’s like Netflix and YouTube, offering movies, music etc. In this case the Pay TV operator only provides the linear channels protected by CryptoGuard CAS but the consumer experiences a rich service.
