FREESAT DVB CONTENT PROTECTION AND COPY MANAGEMENT.
FREESAT DVB CONTENT PROTECTION AND COPY MANAGEMENT is a system for Content Protection and Copy Management of commercial digital content delivered to consumer products.
What does this mean to Joe Bloggs?
Possible sources for commercial digital content include broadcast, cable, satellite and terrestrial. Internet based services, packaged media and mobile services, amongst others.
The graphic which can be enlarged by clicking on it, shows what our T.V. future looks like.
Content Protection and Copy Management is intended for use in protecting all types of commercial content, ie; audio and video.
Content Protection and Copy Management is only concerned with content AFTER it has been aquired, it does not concern itself with the Conditional Access or Digital Rights Management that protected the content on it's way to the consumer.
The Digital Video Broadcasting Content Protection and Copy Management will use boundaries which again shows on the graphic and will be classed as an Authorized Domain and will apply to a single household and can be copied or exported within that Authorized Domain.
It should be pointed out that this is not pie-in-sky, the Content Protection and Copy Management is now a formal standard by ETSI in June 2008.
