DStv Mobile deploys Irdeto

June 6, 2011

Irdeto is securing and delivering live TV to mobile devices for DStv Mobile, South Africa’s first-ever broadcast mobile TV service. In partnership with Korean manufacturer Valups, Irdeto is delivering content from DStv Mobile, a Multichoice Africa Group company, to a variety of different devices on the go, including laptops, iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone.

The Valups dongle, which is being branded by DStv as the Drifta, has embedded security hardware and software from Irdeto and works with the Irdeto Conditional Access System 3 (CAS3) solution to provide best in class cryptography. This combination ensures that DStv can provide its customers with TV programmes via a mobile dongle, safe in the knowledge that the content is protected by a secure and renewable conditional access (CA) solution.
