FCC Video Security Group Targets Biz Requirements

The group, comprised of 18 individuals from companies such as Dish Network, Amazon, Comcast, Cablevision Systems, Charter Communications, TiVo and Google, is tasked with investigating the successor to the CableCARD, a removable security module that failed to create a vibrant retail market for cable-ready retail video devices, and file its recommendations to the FCC by September 4.


Part of Tuesday’s discussion centered on how the committee is defining the “service” itself, whether that’s simply linear and VOD, or a fuller panoply that includes support for other features such as caller ID to the TV, dynamically ad insertion, customer portals and customer service tools, and metadata associated with video content.
