Content distribution with complete security

DMS™ allows content to be securely distributed over satellite or IP broadcast networks to only authorized recipients, with the content delivered on XOS advanced media processor as edge devices. 

The solution is ideal for applications such as content distribution to operators, affiliates and service providers, and distribution of digital terrestrial TV services.

Central management of primary distribution services

Thanks to the DMS, the content provider remotely masters the controls and the services delivered to his customers via XOS. Content is distributed over the satellite or IP network in high-quality mezzanine format compression to selected customers. The services can be decoded and delivered over SDI or ST 2110, transcoded to any codec and resolution or passthrough then delivered over IP or ASI.

Content protection & service authorization

The DMS allows flexible device or group addressability, entitlements, and authorization management, as well as in-band control of the XOS receivers. Based on open standards such as DVB Simulcrypt and AES, the DMS manages content protection against unauthorized viewing via individual or group entitlement control.

Advanced scheduling capabilities

With the DMS you can schedule commands to groups of devices for maintenance (software upgrade), service authorization, regional program replacement, blackout, and spotlight control.
