Irdeto been selected by GoMedia, Europe’s leading on-board infotainment provider, to design a content protection solution which supports OTT video delivery for travellers on Eurostar trains. GoMedia will use Irdeto Rights to secure access over PCs and Macs and leverage Irdeto ActiveCloak technology and Irdeto Secure Key Exchange (SKE) for the Eurostar mobile app. This is the first deployment of Irdeto technology in the transportation market.
GoMedia specialises in providing companies with deployed Wi-Fi media solutions that allow them to monetize their services. In this deployment, Irdeto Rights will secure access to Eurostar’s OTT content library, either through the iOS and Android apps or via PC or Mac. Travellers will be able to access the videos in the library directly via onboard Wi-Fi, without requiring a 3G/4G connection. With this new service, GoMedia and Eurostar can reach up to 600,000 European passengers every month.
“As we launch this new service in the train industry, it was paramount to demonstrate a robust and secure solution to Eurostar,” said Roger Matthews, Managing Director, GoMedia. “The flexibility of the technical solution and experience offered by Irdeto was perfect for this project, providing a sound framework that can be adapted and personalised for other GoMedia customers.”
