Lowering content protection costs with castLabs and Google’s Widevine CAS
One of the most critical aspects of any digital pay TV operation is the selection and deployment of a robust conditional access system (CAS) for content protection.

However, a radically new approach is emerging thanks to cloud-based CAS technology developed by Google and optimized by castLabs with their DRMtoday solution.
Join us for an insightful session to discover the surprising benefits of switching from conventional to Widevine CAS technology.
- What exactly is Google’s Widevine CAS?
- What are its advantages compared to conventional CAS?
- Steps to switching to the new technology, and vendors
- How can both systems be supported in a hybrid offering?
