The Brazilian service provider Oi has adopted Cisco's end-to-end video solution that provides highly secure encryption system for the delivery of digital video services via satelite broadcasting to their customers. This is inlline with the newly launched SES-6 satellite, to provide pay TV service to Oi's customers.
The solution which includes Cisco Videoscape VideoGuard™ Conditional Access System (CAS), a user interface, and Videoscape™ MediaHighway, uses lower bandwidth for encryption which protects Oi's video service from illegal transmission.
“By bringing together the best components, the service provider will have the opportunity to offer a linear transmission with standard definition (SD) and high definition (HD) channels, and strengthen its revenues through other services such as Digital Video Recording (DVR), Internet applications (OTT) and Electronic Program Guide (EPG)"
- Rodrigo Dienstmann, President of Cisco, Brazil
"The Videoscape solution has enabled us to deliver the new line-up with 43 regional Globo TV channels in HD with regional bouquets, a very fast channel zapping, great usability for the subscriber, and an entire roadmap of services”
