PARIS -- Viaccess-Orca (VO), a global leader in the protection and enhancement of content services and Belgian telecommunications operator Mobistar, announced today that Mobistar has selected a content protection solution from Viaccess-Orca to support its cable TV service. Using Viaccess-Orca's Prime Sentinel smart card-based conditional access system (CAS), Mobistar can securely deliver premium live television content to subscribers' set-top boxes (STBs).

Mobistar's new cable TV service is expected to be launched around the fourth quarter of 2014, following new cable regulation in Belgium that gives alternative operators access to cable networks. Leveraging the new regulation, Mobistar plans to expand its consumer mobile phone business into television and broadband services. The selection of the content protection solution partner is another step towards the launch of new convergent offers, after the implementation process was started via the payment of 1.2 million euros, mid-January, to initiate the cable regulation.

"The collaboration with Viaccess-Orca will enable us to offer Belgian consumers competitive cable TV services," said Jean Marc Harion, CEO of Mobistar. "Viaccess-Orca's Prime Sentinel exceeds our requirements for content protection to guarantee the security of our television content and revenue streams."

VO's Prime Sentinel CAS provides security for a wide range of TV service models including live TV, catch-up, PVR, content sharing on home networks, and video-on-demand.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
