NATICK, Mass. -- SecureMedia, Inc., a leading provider of conditional access (CA) and digital rights management (DRM) software solutions, today announced that Cavalier Telephone has licensed SecureMedia's Encryptonite System(TM) CA/DRM software to secure the delivery of advanced IPTV services over Cavalier's multi-state broadband network.

Cavalier Telephone, based in Richmond, Virginia, is a competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) serving business and residential customers across five states and the District of Columbia. Cavalier will provide its customers a complete lineup of the top broadcast pay TV channels as well as Video on Demand (VOD) content from the major Hollywood studios all delivered over a state-of-the-art MPEG-4 AVC distribution platform and protected by SecureMedia's Encryptonite System.

SecureMedia's Encryptonite System is an open platform CA/DRM software solution that provides the highest levels of digital content security allowing telcos and broadband operators to acquire distribution rights to the most compelling broadcast channels and VOD programming. At the same time, the Encryptonite System offers IPTV service providers the lowest cost of operation as the system requires minimal incremental bandwidth and features an ultra- light, processor-efficient client that can be deployed on virtually any set top box, mobile handset, or portable device. Encryptonite also employs a common encryption scheme for both broadcast and VOD content allowing for persistent and efficient protection of content in PVR and nPVR applications.

"The strong content protection provided by the Encryptonite System enables us to provide our customers with the top video content from the leading broadcasters and Hollywood studios," said Brad Evans, CEO of Cavalier Telephone. "We evaluated the various CA/DRM solutions on the market and discovered that SecureMedia offers an efficient, field-proven security solution that also meets our requirements for operational flexibility, scalability and ease of integration."

"Since SecureMedia's founding in 1996, we have been delivering leading edge software security solutions for a variety of digital media applications," said Fred Ellis, CEO of SecureMedia. "The Encryptonite System offers telcos a rapidly deployable security system that can simultaneously protect multiple media types and formats in distribution to set-top boxes, home gateways and mobile handsets, and we are delighted to be working with Cavalier Telephone, who is recognized as one of the most advanced carriers in the U.S."
