GVT TV Deploys the Cisco Conditional Access Solution for DTH in Brazil

This is a highly secure encryption system protected against Cardsharing or Control Word Sharing (a fault in the DVB – Digital Video Broadcasting system), which stops the broadcaster's signal from being transmitted illegally.

Cisco´s VideoGuard solution is part of Videoscape Unity, Cisco's platform for delivering and monetizing a new generation of compelling, differentiated video experiences.

It helps protect content and allows GVT to reduce the bandwidth employed to transmit encryption over a multi-channel, high-definition platform, which reduces operating costs. GVT can use the Cisco solution to broadcast nationwide.

"Part of the NDS acquisition, the VideoGuard offering for GVT reinforces Cisco's investment in a globally recognized technology ", said Rodrigo Dienstmann, leader at Cisco Brazil.
