- Content piracy is a constant problem for both content owners and the Pay TV service providers who deliver broadcast and network content to subscribers. Conditional Access Systems (CAS) and Digital Rights Management (DRM) systems protect content delivered to managed devices like set top boxes (STBs) and unmanaged devices like PCs, smart TVs and handheld devices against unauthorized distribution and piracy.
- Across applications, cable and satellite are the larger segments in the content protection market, while IPTV is growing at the fastest rate. Other applications include mobile TV, Internet video subscription services, professional CAS systems and Pay DTT.
- In terms of regions, the market was more or less evenly divided across NALA, EMEA and APAC in 2011. While average prices are highest in NALA, ongoing digitization of highly populous countries such as India and China drive APAC to continued growth and dominance over the forecast period.
- DRM is increasingly used by Pay TV providers, particularly for over the top (OTT) offerings, within the home behind a gateway, and in headends with next-generation integrated multi-screen architectures.
- The smart card segment is led by NDS and NAGRA, who together account for percent of hardware sales. CableCARD vendors include Cisco Systems, Motorola Mobility and NDS. The cardless CAS and DRM segments are highly fragmented – leading vendors include Microsoft (DRM), Viaccess (DRM) and Verimatrix (cardless CAS-DRM), with Cisco Systems, Motorola Mobility, NDS and NAGRA also accounting for significant revenues.
