Viaccess-Orca unveils new conditional access system

Viaccess OrcaViaccess-Orca has announced the launch of a new converged card and cardless conditional access system (CAS), called Adaptive Sentinel.

The system is designed to ease the transition between card-based and cardless CAS security and is unified by an end-to-end solution architecture.

Viaccess-Orca claims that Adaptive Sentinel offers a quicker time to market for pay TV services by providing a “secure, flexible, and cost-effective security solution” pre-integrated with other ecosystem components.

Adaptive Sentinel supports subscription TV, a la carte, and prepaid business models and the CAS is pre-integrated with set top box middleware and CAM modules. The ecosystem was built with partners including Neotion and Jiuzhou.

“Operators strive for content security that is simple, affordable, and responsive to both the evolving business imperatives of their content agreements and the reality of the content piracy landscape,” said David Leporini, EVP marketing products and security at Viaccess-Orca.

“Adaptive Sentinel has been designed to answer service providers’ challenges for content security rollout, evolution, and migration, as the needs of the services they offer change over time.”

Viaccess-Orca said that a major component of Adaptive Sentinel is its new generation of smart card PC6, released earlier this year.
