Irdeto has launched Irdeto Control on the Go which enables transport operators to offer a secure onboard video entertainment service even without internet connectivity.
The solution is designed for the small footprint of planes, trains, coaches and cruise ships, many of which support Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), and provides the security required to deliver premium, high-quality content to both consumers’ favorite devices and built-in displays, without piracy concerns.
To enable the best OTT experience in these internet-limited environments, Irdeto Control on the Go protects content using industry-standard DRMs on a variety of devices. It meets stringent security requirements for premium content such as new release movies and allows consumers to watch content on their own devices without having to download apps prior to the journey.
“Consumers rely on these dynamic entertainment services to access content anywhere, any time and on any device,” said Andrew Bunten, SVP of Content Protection at Irdeto. “Providing a secure, premium onboard video entertainment service in long-distance transport vehicles without internet connectivity is a great differentiator for plane, train, coach and cruise ship operators. Irdeto Control on the Go delivers the convenience and flexibility consumers desire, while ensuring robust media protection demanded by content owners to securely deliver premium content.”
