THE NETHERLANDS — Exset, pioneers of TV ecosystems for emerging markets, has today revealed that its unique conditional access technology – Exset CAS – has been deployed by Lybid TV, a new pay-TV DTH platform for Ukraine.

Lybid TV, which launched in July this year, will broadcast up to 50 channels, comprising national Ukrainian channels, premium sports offerings including Football, Football +, Sport -1 and Sport – 2 as well as a range of Russian and European channels. It has been created as a low-cost platform with affordable set-up and subscription costs. Signals can be received on a 60cm dish via Eutelsat.

Lybid Deputy CEO and Content Director Anton Aleshanov said, “Knowing Exset CAS is a proven deployed system protecting over 12 million devices around the world along with the excellent professional services they provide, helped ensure our launch was seamless.”

The DTH platform has deployed Exset CAS to provide comprehensive and cost effective content protection. Rahul Nehra, Global Head of Sales and Marketing at Exset, says, “Security is at the core of everything that Exset does and we make it user-friendly. It’s easy to set-up and configure and to use on an on-going basis. Managing access rights is one of the most important tasks for pay-TV operators: commercial content must be available to legitimate subscribers only. We’re very pleased that Lybid TV has recognised the power and affordability of Exset CAS.”

Exset’s latest content protection platform is a sophisticated, fully scalable solution that supports multiple business models for any TV operation across a multitude of consumer devices. It is a distributed CAS that consists of both hardware and software components. It is fully compliant with DVB-Simulcrypt, making it compatible with the leading headend hardware available on the market.
