announced that Cavalier Telephone
an innovative provider of telecommunications services headquartered in
Richmond, Virginia, has launched their advanced H.264 (MPEG-4 technology)
based IPTV/VOD service, the first in the United States, to the Richmond, VA
market. Cavalier's pioneering H.264 Broadband content offering of over 150
crystal clear digital channels, Video-on-Demand and Pay-per-View is
protected by the Encryptonite ONE System CA/DRM (conditional
access/digital rights management) software solution.
"Our goal from day one was to provide consumers with a premiere "Triple
Play" of Broadband TV, local and long distance telephone and high speed
DSL, all at a tremendous value," said Brad Evans, CEO of Cavalier Telephone
and TV. "We selected SecureMedia based on their proven experience and full
support from all the major pay TV networks and Hollywood studios. The ease
of implementation, flexibility and low cost of operation of the
Encryptonite ONE system allowed us to securely offer advanced MPEG-4-based
broadband TV services to our customers and to be the first telephone
provider in the United States to do so," added Evans.
SecureMedia's Encryptonite ONE System is an open platform CA/DRM
software solution that provides the highest levels of digital content
security, allowing telcos and broadband operators to acquire distribution
rights to the most compelling broadcast channels and VOD programming. At
the same time, the Encryptonite ONE System offers IPTV service providers
the lowest cost of operation as the system requires minimal incremental
bandwidth and features an ultra-light, processor-efficient client that can
be deployed on virtually any set top box, mobile handset, or portable
device. Encryptonite ONE also employs a common encryption scheme for both
broadcast and VOD content allowing for persistent and efficient protection
of content in PVR and nPVR applications.
"We are excited that not only our Encryptonite ONE system was selected
by Cavalier Telephone and TV, but with their secure H.264-based digital
entertainment network launch, we have become a part of technology history,"
said Fred Ellis, CEO of SecureMedia. "Encryptonite ONE System's flexibility
and extensible design will readily support Cavalier's goal of expanding
their 'Triple Play' Broadband TV service offerings to two million homes in
the coming months. As the knowledge leader in securing converged digital
media, we look forward to working with Cavalier Telephone and TV on future
projects that will provide their customers with even more entertainment and
convenience options," added Ellis.
