Widevine Technologies has unveiled its CableCard - a QAM and IP-based hardware solution that allows cable operators, satellite providers and telcos to provide two-way, downloadable conditional access protection when delivering content to any CableCard-enabled device.

Widevine’s CableCard supports content delivered across multiple networks and multiple streams to TVs, STBs, PCs and portable media players.

The solution also includes session-based forensic watermarking code that can be activated through a download from Widevine Mensor to the CableCard, the company said, enabling operators to identify and track pirates on their networks.

"This [downloadable] approach enables them to quickly deploy an FCC-compliant, Hollywood approved separable security solution on an existing network, yet allows the flexibility to deploy a truly downloadable solution using the same Widevine components in the headend when the time is right," said Matt Cannard, Widevine’s VP of marketing.
