DMS Video Distribution Management System

Harmonic’s DMS video distribution management system provides broadcasters and content providers with powerful control tools over large populations of Harmonic ProView 7100 and ProView 8100 IRDs. The software-based solution allows flexible device or group addressability, entitlements and authorization management as well as over-the-air (OTA) in-band control of content distribution network (CDN) elements. It’s ideal for applications such as content distribution to operators, affiliates and service providers, and distribution of digital terrestrial TV services.

DMS enables secure broadcast of video content over satellite or IP delivery networks, helping content providers to deliver content to authorized recipients only. Based on open standards such as DVB SimulCrypt, DMS provides individual or group entitlements control with any DVB-compliant conditional access (CA) system. Decryption on ProView 7000 and 7100 receivers is based on DVB-CI modules.
