CCcam is one of many ways to share Pay TV Cards. To put it in a simple way, Our servers redundantly distribute series of decrypted codes toward your receiver box and let you open your desired channel.
CCCAM may stands for Client Card Conditional Access Module. It works on the basis of Conditional Access Module or CAM.
it is simply a card sharing protocol where one subscription card is shared over the network of viewers. So on the payment of only one subscription card, a whole lot of viewers are going to enjoy the service.
CCCAM make it possible for people to view channels that are decrypted and can only be watched after buying a subscription card which is of course costly.
Mostly all receivers now come with this option to provide a better user experience.
Ever wonder why in FTA receivers some channels show a black screen with a note that says scrambled
and an icon like this $
shows on the OSD.
This indicates that these channels are not accessible due to some reasons probably their encryption from the broadcaster’s side.
The reason behind this encryption is to limit their stream to some people i.e those who pay for the service. These channels or group of channels sells Subscription cards to the market, to get profit from their streaming.
For Example: Sky Italia Pay TV service. One have to pay 1K$ annually to watch these channels package. As this amount is too much to pay for about total of 170 channels in Europe.
This is where CCcam comes to rescue. CCcam has made it possible for viewers to open and watch a bunch of Pay Tv services like Dish TV HD, Dialogue TV HD etc.
What is CCcam and MGcamd ?
CCcam is a Softcam or emulator used to watch DTH channels by Card Sharing on Linux based receivers.
I am not sure but I think it stands for Client Card Conditional Access Module. CCcam is the communication protocol that allows the flow of information between different decoders.
It makes the Card Sharing send the commands from one place to another. In simple words, we can say that CCcam transfers and receives a subscription card over a network
In addition to CCcam, many other protocols are widely supported. They are usually called Cam emulators, such as Newcam, MGcamd, Avatarcam, DSCAM, DQCAM, and G-Share.
How Does it Work CCcam ?
The channels are encrypted with some sort of password. These passwords changes every 10 seconds, making it very hard for hackers to crack it in this short period of time.
However, CCcam made this thing possible by downloading the new versions as soon as the image is encrypted. So you can enjoy the uninterrupted stream while CCcam handles it all for you.
OR If I say it in another way
It is actually a bit of coding that talks straight to our servers that has the original satellite CCCAM subscription information. Every 5-10 seconds your tv picture could be encrypted from the supplier and to unlock it, needs the decryption keys.
Once this happens, your receiver will ask your provider’s servers, the new password in real time and deliver it back to your receiver.
Sound kinda hectic. Right? but you will be amazed to know that all of this process happens in milliseconds to ensure that your viewing pleasure is not disturbed by freezing or pixelation.
