Panasonic to deliver DRM to hotel/resort plasma displays
Panasonic Broadcast has licensed the Pro:Idiom Digital Rights Management system (DRM) and will offer its plasma displays for hotels and resorts with the encryption technology by year-end.
Developed for the lodging industry, Pro:Idiom protects satellite-delivered HD programming and video-on-demand content against piracy at every point in the distribution chain, including the television.
Panasonic developed the plug-in card Pro:Idiom solution for its line of specially designed high-definition plasma displays for hoteliers. The card can also support Panasonic’s full range of professional displays, including the new 50in and 65in native 1920 x 1080p full HD resolution professional displays.
Their slot architecture allows the hotel to equip the panel with a Pro:Idiom-enhanced tuner board compatible with major video on demand/pay per view systems and provide guests with access to a wide variety of HD programming.
