Discretix, a provider of embedded security and content protection solutions, and Latens part of the Pace Group and a provider of software security solutions for pay-TV, have announced a partnership to extend content protection beyond traditional pay-TV networks to include smartphones, tablets and other connected devices.
The integration of Latens Security Manager with Discretix SecurePlayer ensures a unified encoding, delivery and security architecture which can be supported on all Android and iOS devices. Latens Manager acts as a security domain controller with pluggable interfaces through which any CAS or DRM technology can be rapidly deployed. This relieves the operator from managing the huge variety of proprietary subscriber and security data models which these systems implement and as a result simplifies integration with Subscriber Management Systems (SMS) exposing a single data model. Latens Manager interfaces with back-office systems delivering simplicity and allowing easy integration, which allows the SMS to implement its core function while allowing Latens CAS to hide the complexities of content protection.
