Are your multiscreen plans stymied by content security issues?
Broadcasters all over the world are in a rush to launch TV Everywhere multiscreen services, however issues over content rights are the greatest barrier to sharing media across devices. We explain here how this can now be solved using an open, standards based approach.
Open standards such as DLNA Premium Video enable operators to address more devices than any other technology without the hassle of proprietary applications, device fragmentation and the pain of maintaining multiple code bases. DLNA has security built in through DCTP-IP, but the owners of the most valuable content are understandably nervous and want greater insurance before high-definition digital content can be shared from the TV to tablets and smartphones within the home network.
To provide this extra insurance, ACCESS has been working with security experts to seamlessly integrate Conditional Access and DRM interfaces into our solutions to provide what we call 'Studio Confident' media sharing. This integration of DRM with our media sharing solution, NetFront™ Living Connect, enables operators to deploy a security hardened multiscreen offering. This is achieved by taking a more active control of distribution rights and capabilities of tablets, smartphones and Smart TVs. It enables new business opportunities for operators such as offline media sharing, local PVR content sharing to any device in the home and even makes sure that remote devices receive content in a format most suitable for the device and network.
Get in touch (email email@example.com) if you would like to know more about how NetFront Living Connect can provide you with the simplest path to secure multiscreen media-sharing.
Megatrends are making their mark in the video entertainment industry, affecting device manufacturers, content distributors and consumers alike. These trends include the collision between over-the-top (OTT) content distribution using the internet and pay TV business models, the blossoming of connected TV strategies and the increasing importance of social media in TV.
