Arris Group and NDS have announced their collaboration on a tightly-integrated solution that will offer service providers greater choice and customisation in the way they deliver seamless whole home triple-play media experiences to their subscribers. The joint integration will provide a comprehensive architecture to accelerate the pace of innovation and the convergence of traditional pay-TV with Interactive IP Multi-Media Services.
The integration of the Arris Media Gateway and Media Player with NDS’ MediaHighway middleware, VideoGuard Connect DRM and the NDS Snowflake user interface is being architected in close collaboration with several North American cable operators. NDS is the first 3rd party supplier to integrate its software with the Arris Media Gateway and Media Players.
“Today’s marketplace demands that cable operators deliver the most robust content package in an elegant and exciting user experience,” said Jesper Knutsson, NDS VP and General Manager Sales, NDS Americas. “The NDS and ARRIS software and hardware components of this joint solution come together behind the award-winning NDS Snowflake user interface to deliver seamless and mesmerising whole home experiences for our customers’ subscribers.”
