Pay TV integration is often a key requirement for Television Headend Systems and can one of the more challenging elements to integrate depending on the provider and their requirements around encryption.
Av-Comm can integrate all Pay TV platforms into our Headend solutions including Foxtel, MySat, TV Plus, NHK Premium, and Canal+. Typically the Pay TV provider will supply a Conditional Access Module (CAM) and smartcard that we integrate into the headend to decode the channels. Once the channels are decoded and processed into our Headend we can distribute the channels via RF (coax) or IP to any device.
One of Av-Comm’s unique Headend Solutions for IPTV systems is to encrypt Foxtel all the way to the TV, an essential requirement for any Foxtel IPTV system. Av-Comm has partnered with LG Procentric and Proidium to provide a turnkey IPTV system that is significantly more cost effective and eliminates the annual fees associated with alternative encryption systems.
