Moto’s SecureMedia secures TWC deal
May 21, 2012
Motorola Mobility’s SecureMedia content protection unit has won a major content delivery deal with confirmation that Time Warner Cable selected the SecureMedia Encryptonite ONE HLS+ solution to streamline its video distribution across a variety of devices and avoid the cost and complication of operating multiple streaming platforms and security systems to reach multiple device types.
SecureMedia Encryptonite ONE HLS+ is the security component of Motorola’s Medios suite of content-delivery innovations for today’s multi-screen ecosystem. The solution is a single content distribution platform based on the HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) adaptive streaming protocol that enables operators securely to deliver linear and on-demand content to a wide range of devices – including smartphones, tablets, game consoles, and connected TVs and Blu-Ray players.
“Our consumers are watching more media on more screens. As a leading operator in delivering multi-screen experiences, we’re invested in making that experience as seamless and enjoyable as possible,” said Mike Hayashi, Executive Vice President, Architecture, Development and Engineering at Time Warner Cable, adding that SecureMedia streamlined the way the operator distributed secure video to multiple devices, ensuring that its millions of subscribers could view all of the premium content they want, on the devices they want, while protecting studios’ rights.
