LAUSANNE, Switzerland - August 22nd, 2016
FASTCOM Technology SA presents its MCAS solution at IBC 2016, stand 5.C35, 9th to 13th September 2016FASTCOM Technology SA, a leading company in licensing authority services for connected devices, presents its MCAS solution at IBC 2016, stand 5.C35, 9th to 13th September 2016.

MCAS can manage multiple security assets throughout their respective lifecycles and is based on industry standards. Typical connected devices are set-top boxes (STBs). Thanks to MCAS, the operator keeps the direct control over the STBs deployed in the field, while preserving the security level of leading solutions (e.g. CAS, DRM, SSL). MCAS empowers the operator to freely choose the applications, the middleware and the security solutions for its STBs. If required, a multi-vendor approach is also possible. Updates and changes are possible at any time for a minimum cost, even when the STBs are deployed in the field.
