The American National Standards Institute has approved two SCTE standards, ANSI/SCTE 41 2011 and ANSI/SCTE 175 2011.

ANSI/SCTE 41 2011, POD Copy Protection System, defines the characteristics and normative specifications for the system that prevents unrestricted copying of such high value content as it crosses the POD-host interface. It provides methods for authenticating host devices, binding POD modules to host devices, copy protection key generation, rescrambling high value content and then descrambling by the host, and transmission and authentication of copy control information.

ANSI/SCTE 175 2011, Multimedia Management (MMM) Recommended Practice for Qualifying Network Devices, addresses recommended baseline tests intended to represent the operation of network devices in the ANSI/SCTE 168 series of Recommended Practices [17][18][19], which describe IP video networks at MSO headend, core, and hub networks. The baseline tests provide a common set of reference results that can be used to preliminarily screen equipment and configurations during the selection, configuration, and deployment process.
