Discretix, VisualOn and Axel mobile TV solution

February 6, 2008

Security solutions outfit Discretix, multimedia application provider VisualOn, and mobile TV middleware developer Axel Technologies, have partnered to provide a pre-integrated Mobile TV solution for handset OEMs. The DVB-H-based solution, which supports both the OMA BCAST Smartcard and DRM Security Profiles, delivers an ultra-reliable, out of the box strategy for mobile TV.

The partnership gives handset OEMs and service providers a new and practical alternative for rolling out mobile TV. The solution combines VisualOn's Mobile TV Player, Axel Technologies' Salmonstream Mobile DVB-H middleware stack and Discretix' Multi-Scheme Mobile TV security client. The OMA BCAST Smartcard Profile protects Mobile TV services via the use of a Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) card. Both the Smartcard and DRM Profiles ensure that commercial broadcast content can be protected and tracked when transmitted over wireless networks.
