Pace, the digital TV and broadband technology expert, has announced it will demonstrate its Titanium Unified Rights Management at IBC, as part of its Elements Whole Home solution. Delivered by Latens, a Pace company, Titanium is a 100 per cent secure, software-based content security solution which eliminates the need for smartcards reducing both the cost of ownership and complexity of rights management.
The Titanium portfolio enables rights of all types to be managed coherently across all devices including STBs, PCs and a new generation of connected devices. Deployed by operators globally, Titanium is quick and easy to install, fully scalable and integrates easily with middleware, STBs and back-end systems. As more operators extend content to different devices, such as iOS, Android and Windows, PCs, tablets and mobile phones, Titanium integrates industry standard Digital Rights Management (DRM) schemes minimising the costs of supporting clients on these multiple consumer devices.
According to Jon Cobb, Pace’s President of Software and Services; “As more content is added to more devices, operators need solutions that have the flexibility to support future services and the delivery of content to mobiles, tablets and PCs. The software approach of Titanium means that operators can take control and more cost-effectively manage the complexity of rights management. As well as providing the inherent security recovery advantages compared with smart card solutions, the unified platform approach future-proofs operators in a fast changing market.”
