Viaccess, RRD announce mobile TV security solution

Viaccess, a France Telecom company, and DVB-H service integrator RRD have announced an end-to-end mobile TV security solution, based on the OMA BCAST SmartCard profile standard.

This solution is compatible with any handset compliant with the OMA BCAST Smartcard profile.
