PRESS RELEASE

GVT TV Deploys Cisco´s Conditional Access Solution for DTH in Brazil

Sao Paulo, BRAZIL, September 20, 2013 – Cisco announced that GVT TV has adopted the Cisco® Videoscape VideoGuard® Smart Card to protect its video content transmitted via satellite in Brazil.  This is a highly secure encryption system protected against Cardsharing or Control Word Sharing (a fault in the DVB – Digital Video Broadcasting system), which stops the broadcaster's signal from being transmitted illegally.  

Cisco´s VideoGuard solution is part of Videoscape Unity, Cisco's platform for delivering and monetizing a new generation of compelling, differentiated video experiences. It helps protect content and allows GVT to reduce the bandwidth employed to transmit encryption over a multi-channel, high-definition platform, which reduces operating costs. GVT can use the Cisco solution to broadcast nationwide.  GVT currently serves 146 cities in Brazil and has been gradually expanding coverage as it widens its network in the cities it now operates in and moves into new cities around the country.

"Part of the NDS acquisition, the VideoGuard offering for GVT reinforces Cisco's investment in a globally recognized technology ", said Rodrigo Dienstmann, leader at Cisco Brazil.
