The G&D Mobile TV Card securely stores and manages the keys required for conditional access systems, allowing encrypted mobile TV content to be broadcast to portable media players, PDAs and mobile phones. Irdeto was tapped to provide the content security for the card because of its expertise in delivering content security solutions for most of the world’s major mobile TV standards, including S-DMB, T-DMB and DVB-H.
