Content security provider NDS has entered into a technology partnership with content portability specialist Morega Systems, integrating its new VideoGuard Connect DRM for multi-platform pay TV with Morega’s content delivery solution for multi-channel operators.
Morega’s technology enables pay TV operators to deploy TV Everywhere services that allow subscribers to consume premium content on devices including smartphones, tablets and PCs. By using VideoGuard Connect, Morega will offer service protection for ‘sideloaded’ content.
VideoGuard Connect offers protection of pay TV services to the most popular devices including the PC, Mac, games consoles, iOS (iPad, iPhone) and Android mobile and tablet devices.
Philip Poulidis, president and CEO of Morega Systems, said: “We believe that in the coming years consumers will expect media mobility to be a standard feature of any pay TV package. This is a service that is in great demand from users but one that can be a challenge for operators since they have to guarantee they can protect premium content from the threat of file sharing. By working with NDS as our security partner we are able to give customers even greater confidence that they can make the most of their most valuable asset – content – without the threat of it being compromised during the move to new platforms.”
NDS will be exhibiting at IBC on Stand 1.A71
