TVN Entertainment has implemented Widevine Technologies' software-based Cypher Virtual SmartCard for the pre-encryption and secure transport of video-on-demand titles.

"TVN delivers over 2,000 hours of high profile, high value, file-based content via satellite to our network of VOD distribution affiliates every month. It is absolutely imperative that we protect that content from unauthorized interception, and do so throughout our network," said TVN Chief Technology Officer Dom Stasi, in a release.

TVN, an aggregator and distributor of high-end video fare, has strong ties to the cable industry, but has secured IPTV VOD agreements of late with telcos such as Verizon, CenturyTel and Surewest Communications.
