Sistema picks NDS Technologies to deliver IPTV, mobile TV to Russia

Russia’s Sistema Mass Media (SMM) has chosen NDS Technologies' Unified Headend platform to unify content delivery of its existing pay-TV services to subscribers on both IP and mobile TV platforms. The NDS deployment also will enable new services, according to SMM officials.

NDS’ Unified Headend integrates conditional access, digital rights management and third-party applications, allowing operators to deliver secure broadcast and VOD services to a variety of devices — set-top boxes, mobile phones, PCs, portable media players and DVRs — while leveraging a single system to control content distribution.

SMM’s deployment will include the VideoGuard Mobile secure mobile TV solution, part of the NDS Unified Headend, to protect its upcoming DVB-H mobile TV service. Digital Teleradiobroadcasting, an SMM subsidiary, will launch the mobile TV service to all Russian mobile subscribers starting in Moscow and following in 16 other large Russian cities. SMM’s upcoming DVB-H service will be available to all Russian mobile subscribers regardless of network service provider.
