International Datacasting Announces Recent New Broadcast Radio Orders
International Datacasting Corporation (IDC), part of the Novra Group (TSX-V: NVI), announced that it has received recent orders for new and existing radio networks in around the world. The orders range from small system expansions to complete network refresh. For example, the Missinipi Broadcast Corporation (MBC) out of Saskatchewan, Canada, is replacing its previous IDC network with a new STAR system.
SPOTLIGHT: Cyphercast IP Security
Cyphercast is one of IDC’s little-known gems—this software-based solution previously offered only integrated into hardware, is now available as a stand-alone software application providing a conditional access system (CAS) to secure IP multicast transmissions. The Cyphercast CAS system enables content tiering and full subscriber management addressability. Decryption keys are stored in smart cards under RSA lock & key. Cyphercast provides for multicast IP distributions, everything traditional conditional access systems do for DTH service providers…only better.
