Irdeto IP Media Player Solution
August 18, 2009
Cloakware, the provider of proven software solutions for securing business and digital assets and an Irdeto Group company announced its DTCP-IP Media Player solution, designed to enable cable operators to secure and monetise programming content within the home entertainment network. The solution, part of Irdeto’s overall solution for cable operators, was developed to provide a robust and secure transmission path on the Internet for content to be distributed to all home-based digital devices, including the PC, and allow content owners to securely distribute content on the cable platform without the risk associated with an open platform.
The Cloakware solution is fully compliant with DTCP-IP (Digital Transmission Content Protection-Internet Protocol), a protection mode selected by CableLabs that serves as the link protection mechanism between the cable modem and a subscriber’s home digital devices. Supported by the Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) and its consumer electronics certification program, DTCP enables the seamless content exchange between authenticated devices in the home through an encrypted exchange of content and copy control information across a range of standard interfaces including IEEE 1394 and the Internet Protocol (IP) over Ethernet, MOCHA or 802.11 (WiFi).
