Evolution Digital and Conax announced that Conax will provide its multi-DRM solution for Evolution Digital’s eVUE-TV platform, which is being made available on the National Cable Television Cooperative’s (NCTC) VU-IT! Platform.
eVUE-TV is a managed IP platform for linear and on-demand video, as well as network DVR and “catch-up” TV features, that Evolution Digital has been pitching to tier 2/3 U.S. cable operators. Last year, Evolution announced that eVUE-TV is the first offering to be introduced as an option for VU-IT!,” a platform that includes a solution for backoffice integration, OTT apps and “enhanced services” that enable IP-based linear and VOD services.
Support for Conax’s content security system will enable partners to support multi-DRM technologies that utilize PlayReady, Widevine, FairPlay and Nagra PRM, as well as THE next generation Conax Connected Access security client that combines CA/IPTV/DRM functionalities, they said.
They added that the Conax Contego security back-end has been integrated with the eVUE-TV platform in hosted and on-premises models, and that the platform meets the MovieLabs Enhanced Content protection requirements for 4K/UHD.
“We have partnered with Conax to offer a best of breed comprehensive content security solution to our NCTC members with eVUE-TV,” Brent Smith, president and chief technology officer of Evolution Digital, said in a statement. “As cable operators move to IP distribution and begin offering a wide-range of content that can be viewed anywhere, Evolution Digital is committed to delivering content securely and providing operators with a low cost and hassle-free solution that eliminates complexities of technology integration.”
