NOVELSAT Ncrypt encompasses software-based encryption and decryption modules with IP and ASI connectivity, as well as a powerful operations suite for controlling and operating BISS-CA encryption, dynamic key generation and distribution, and highly flexible entitlement management.
NOVELSAT Ncrypt joins NOVELSAT’s family of widely deployed content protection solutions for media networks.
