NDS has integrated its VideoGuard mobile content protection system for DVB-H within the Quantum Pocket TV portable media player (PMP). The integrated system was showcased at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, last week.
The integration enables pay-TV broadcasters and mobile network operators to offer their subscribers secure personal and innovative video services, whether indoors or outdoors. The Pocket TV can play both encrypted broadcast video and downloaded video stored securely on a memory card. The DVB-H signal carried by the integrated product originates in NDS’ Unified Headend (UHE) architecture, which provides a single point of business management for all video broadcasts irrespective of the delivery networks or the rendering devices.
