Video compression company Ateme has announced it has included the BISS-CA standard for content protection within all of its premium products and solutions.
A scrambling protocol co-developed with the European Broadcasting Union and Eurovision Services, Basic Interoperable Scrambling System Conditional Access (BISS-CA) offers open, conditional access and gives users a transparent, traceable, and vendor-agnostic contribution and primary distribution scrambling system.
BISS-CA is secure thanks to its encryption with rolling keys, said Ateme. As a standard, it is interoperable across encoders, transcoders, multiplexers, and decoders. It is also scalable and simple to operate, using public keys to manage assets.
Ateme has incorporated it into its Kyrion, Titan, and Pilot premium solutions.
“Piracy is increasing. According to international research firm Parks Associates, it could result in a $113 billion loss for streaming services by 2027,” said Julien Mandel, solution marketing senior director at Ateme.
“Launched at NAB Show 2018, BISS-CA has evolved to meet new modes of operation. Today it is not just for satellite distribution: combining BISS-CA with any Automatic Repeat Request (ARQ) transmission protocol, such as Secure Reliable Transport (SRT), enables secure transmission over the public internet as well as secure ingest/egress to/from the cloud.”
