GlobeCast Selects Irdeto Security for Satellite Content Distribution Service

GlobeCast, a subsidiary of France Telecom and a leading global content management and delivery company, has selected the Irdeto Digital TV content security solution for large operators to secure its satellite TV content distribution service worldwide.

GlobeCast has upgraded from Irdeto's M-Crypt control system for small to medium-sized operators to the Irdeto PIsys control system, a more comprehensive and scalable system. Both control systems use the same smart cards and set top boxes, thus allowing for a seamless upgrade with no need to change equipment already in the field.

  • In November 2005, GlobeCast launched an IPTV Super Headend capable of aggregating hundreds of television signals from around the globe in MPEG-2 and MPEG-4, and providing IP encapsulation and retransmission of content via satellite for distribution to "local" IPTV headends across North America. GlobeCast has opened a new Technical Operations Center (TOC) in Miami, where it will base its operations.
