Cavalier Selects SecureMedia to Protect IPTV Services

Cavalier Telephone, a CLEC based in Virginia, has licensed SecureMedia's Encryptonite System CA/DRM software to secure the delivery of IPTV services over Cavalier's multi-state broadband network.

Cavalier will provide its customers a lineup of the top broadcast pay TV channels as well as Video on Demand (VOD) content from the major Hollywood studios all delivered over an MPEG-4 AVC distribution platform and protected by SecureMedia's Encryptonite System.

SecureMedia's Encryptonite System is an open platform CA/DRM software solution. The company said its Encryptonite System offers IPTV service providers the lowest cost of operation as the system requires minimal incremental bandwidth and features an ultra-light, processor-efficient client that can be deployed on virtually any set top box, mobile handset, or portable device. Encryptonite also employs a common encryption scheme for both broadcast and VOD content allowing for persistent and efficient protection of content in PVR and nPVR applications.
