Interoperability through ‘Marlin Partner Program’
October 23, 2008
Over twenty-five leading Technology Solutions Providers, System Integrators and Content Management companies have joined forces to create the Marlin Partner Program (MPP). Members of the program can now deliver technology solutions to service providers and consumer device manufacturers who want to make digital content interoperable between consumer electronics devices that include mobile phones, set top boxes, media players and PCs.
The MPP allows providers of mobile, broadband, broadcast and IPTV services, and manufacturers of networked consumer devices to deploy more flexible and useful products and services where consumers can move protected content between devices. MPP companies would provide the various technical components necessary for customers to deliver Marlin solutions and integration services to network operators, service providers and device manufacturers.
The MPP is launching with global technology leaders including Consumer Electronics companies, Systems Integrators, Content Management, and Security companies. Initial partner companies include: 24-7 Entertainment, Cloakware, CoreMedia, CoreTrust, DigiCAPS, Digital Keystone, dprotech, EGC&C, Fasoo, Fujitsu, Hitachi, icube, INKA Entworks, MarkAny, MPS Broadband, SafeNet, SecureMedia, Tata Elxsi, Teruten, Triple IT, Valups, Verimatrix, VIT Infotech, Wisembed, and Wyplay.
