Twelve technology providers demonstrated emerging technologies at the CableLabs Summer Conference earlier this month. Among the 12 companies was Scopus Video Networks, which demonstrated an end-to-end system with two main components: secure and error-resilient video transport over IP, and stream conditioning for client-based targeted advertising.
During the CableLabs Innovation Showcase, selected companies demonstrated a technology or application that was new to the cable marketplace and had not yet been deployed in cable systems anywhere in the world. The showcase took place during a plenary session of the conference. Each company made a 10-minute presentation and demonstration before an audience of more than 300 cable industry technologists and business executives.
As operators deploy video-over-IP transport across massive networks, internal or leased fiber, they are challenged by stream errors that affect security and service. The Scopus implementation allows for secure and error-resilient video transport in a point-to-point or point-to-multipoint architecture. Scopus uses a scrambling/descrambling scheme coupled with a Forward Error Correction (Pro MPEG FEC) mechanism to allow the secure and reliable delivery of video-over-IP networks. Both the scrambling and FEC mechanisms implemented by Scopus are interoperable for integration in open systems.
