INSIDE Secure, Thomson security for Sky Italia
May 28, 2014
INSIDE Secure, an expert in embedded security solutions for mobile and connected devices, and Thomson Video Networks, a global player in video compression solutions for satellite, terrestrial, cable, IPTV, mobile TV, and Web streaming, have collaborated to enhance the secure delivery of premium content for Sky Italia.
Sky Italia, leading Italian pay-tv platform, will deploy Thomson Video Networks’ ViBE VS7000 multiscreen video encoder with INSIDE Secure’s Downloadable DRM Fusion Agent to protect its content rights. Tested for their robust interoperability, the VS7000 with DRM Fusion Agent now extend the convenience and versatility of their joint solutions and provide a better security than conditional access services. Sky Italia will thus be able to provide a high level of security for its OTT services.
“By combining INSIDE Secure’s studio-approved DRM Fusion Agent with Thomson Video Networks’ widely-adopted ViBE VS7000 multiscreen solution, we have removed a major obstacle that has hampered Web TV and OTT operators from delivering quality experiences to their customers,” said Eric Gallier, vice president of marketing at Thomson Video Networks. “We believe bringing stronger security and capabilities combined with a superior TV experience for viewers will open up new opportunities for players needing to stream or download offline content.”
