South Korean cable operator CJ Hellovision has overhauled its content security system using Alticast’s AltiProtect download and replace conditional access system (CAS).

CJ Hellovision KoreaAltiProtect, which is a software-only and cardless system, was installed remotely to more than four million CJ Hellovision subscribers over a period of 28 months.

“We selected Alticast because their solution was backed by a patent for remote switching technology, and the service was completely transparent to subscribers during the conversion process,” said Dr Hong-lk Kim, head of engineering, CJ Hellovision. “Thanks to Alticast’s security team, we were able to successfully commercialise the software platform without any customer calls.”

Alticast and C J Hellovision created an action plan for migrating CAS security over 22 individual business areas and 13 different set-top box types, including bi-directional and uni-directional models. The AltiProtect system ensures reliable content protection for broadcast and video-on-demand (VOD), and can adapt to unique network infrastructures.

Alticast has now converted more than 90% of the Korean domestic cable operators’ legacy conditional access systems to AltiProtect CAS.

“We look forward to helping other pay-TV operators replicate CJ Hellovision’s success of migrating efficiently and without schedule delays to stable, highly secure content protection systems,” said Dr Mi-Sung Cho, executive director of security division, Alticast.
