Oi selects Cisco Videoscape for Pay TV

Oi, the Brazilian service provider has adopted Cisco Videoscape, an end-to-end solution that enables service providers to quickly deliver digital video services (like Pay TV) to their customers.

The solution, which includes Cisco Videoscape VideoGuard Conditional Access System (CAS), a user interface, and Videoscape MediaHighway, provides a highly secure platform against piracy and a wide-ranging functionality that will be offered to subscribers in the coming months.

“By bringing together the best components, the service provider will have the opportunity to offer a linear transmission with standard definition (SD) and high definition (HD) channels, and strengthen its revenues through other services such as Digital Video Recording (DVR), Internet applications (OTT) and Electronic Program Guide (EPG),” said Rodrigo Dienstmann, president, Cisco Brazil.

With a highly secure encryption system, service provider signals can be protected from illegal transmissions, and can ensure the use of lower bandwidth for encryption, which may result in lower operating costs.

“The Videoscape solution has enabled us to deliver the new line-up with 43 regional Globo TV channels in HD with regional bouquets, a very fast channel zapping, great usability for the subscriber, and an entire roadmap of services,” said Ariel Dascal, director, Oi TV.

Recently Oi has invested in a new SES-6 satellite, to enable the increased transmission capacity of its cable TV service. Released in 2013 on the basis of Baikonur in Kazakhstan, SES-6 also provides to Oi a competitive differentiation in the market to ensure greater diversity in programming and best sound and image quality.

Oi, the pioneer company in providing convergent services in Brazil, offers local and long distance voice transmission, mobile, bandwidth and cable TV. Oi is present in the entire national territory and has 74.6 million revenue generating units (RGU). Of this total, 48 million were in the personal mobile segment, 18 million in the residential segment, 8 million in the business/corporate segment and 657,000 in Public Utility Telephones (TUP).
