VOOM selects NDS for advanced subscriber technologies for HDTV platform

VOOM, the first service to deliver a broad offering of high-definition TV programming, has chosen NDS, a News Corp. company and provider of technology solutions for digital pay TV, to provide its subscribers with a number of advanced technologies.

Building on their current relationship, NDS and Rainbow DBS, the Cablevision company offering VOOM, have launched a first-of-its-kind Electronic Programming Guide (EPG) built specifically for high-definition programming.

Within a few months, VOOM will transition its conditional access over to NDS’s VideoGuard protection. With the full integration of VideoGuard conditional access, all content delivered by VOOM over satellite will be protected and enhanced through VideoGuard’s wide-ranging feature set.

Using NDS’s Digital Video Recorder content protection and storage technology, VOOM will also be able to offer its subscribers a secure networked DVR product that supports the safe distribution of content throughout the home.

Additionally, the collaboration will bring to market the first HDTV solution using a Motorola set-top box integrated with NDS conditional access technology.
