Deliver Content Securely

Broadcasters, media operators and organizations need to safeguard content streamed via their enterprise IP video system and protect the material from illegal copying and distribution.

Exterity meets the demand for secure delivery of content-protected or sensitive video with the addition of support for High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCPv2), which enables users to extend protection through the network from Exterity Encoders. Refer to the Secure Video section for more information.
