And the demos will be presented by Corpus at Cablenet Expovision 2016 in BCN Booth. Corpus will deploy its VAS Middleware in the STBs to enable PushVOD services and it will be available with variety of purchase option and advance content protection on the high end devices. During transmission the content will be encoded, encrypted and pushed to the subscribers STB. All rights associated to the stored content are managed by the CAS. The transaction is also handled by the CAS and billing information provided to the Subscriber Management System in the head-end. Mr. Raju of BCN is betting high on integrating PushVOD services with the help of Corpus to effectively distribute content, utilize bandwidth, and maintain high standards of customer satisfaction.
