After having started its 2021 virtual events calendar with Nextv Series Andean’s first virtual edition, Dataxis confirms that it will hold a new webinar, which will be called ‘Lowering content protection costs with castLabs and Google’s Widevine CAS’. The event will be sponsored by castLabs and will take place tomorrow, Wednesday, May 12th, at 12:00 PM (ART), in Spanish language. Registration is free, and can be done here.
Industry executives gathered by Dataxis to star the webinar are Raul Antillon, Sales Manager Latam at castLabs; Guillermo Martinez, Strategic Partner Development Android TV at Google; and Ryan Lewis, Business Development Widevine at Google.
One of the most critical aspects of any digital pay TV operation is the selection and deployment of a robust conditional access system (CAS) for content protection. But buying a CAS typically adds a significant expense to total capex costs faced by an operator. However, a radically new approach is emerging thanks to cloud-based CAS technology developed by Google and optimized by castLabs with their DRMtoday solution. The webinar will focus on discovering the benefits of switching from conventional to Widevine CAS technology.
Main topics to be developed during the event will focus on what is Google’s Widevine CAS exactly; what its advantages compared to conventional CAS are; steps to switching to the new technology and vendors; how can both systems be supported in a hybrid offering; and other related issues.
Dataxis, in charge of helding the webinar, is a leading global company specialized in detailed market research, high-quality events and specialized media for the telecommunications and TV sectors in more than 200 countries around the world.
