Texas Instruments partners with Orange, Viaccess for content protection
Texas Instruments (TI) is collaborating with wireless operator Orange and digital media security solutions provider Viaccess on a solution that will provide content and access protection for broadcast TV on a mobile device. The product will integrate TI's OMAP processor with Viaccess' conditional access technology.
The OMAP processor features the standards-compliant M-Shield security technology, giving the solution the high security levels needed to protect both the execution of the conditional access application and the system-level handset security. The OMAP processor itself meets the performance and power requirements of the decrypted mobile TV content. The Viaccess conditional access technology gives mobile handsets the capability to support multiple distribution models for mobile television, including TV channel bouquet subscription, "a la carte" subscription, pay-per-minute and pay-per-view.
