RGB Networks is offering privacy mode encryption licensing and technology for video-on-demand (VOD) applications. RGB says the encryption enables cable operators to encrypt their VOD programs so that they can only be viewed by authorized subscribers. RGB will enable this capability on two of its products: the Universal Scalable Modulator (USM) and Dynamic Bandwidth Manager (DBM). RGB will apply privacy mode encryption to the VOD programs as they are processed. The company’s USM is a high density universal QAM modulator. The RGB DBM is a VOD bandwidth optimization platform which reduces VOD bandwidth requirements, which RGB says, will enable cable operators to deliver more standard and high definition VOD programs without the need for increased bandwidth.
