Denmark's TRE-FOR chooses Widevine Cypher for conditional access

Widevine Technologies, a provider of content protection services, has announced that TRE-FOR of Denmark has chosen its Cypher technology to protect its premium broadcast channels and video-on-demand services.

TRE-FOR chose Widevine Cypher, a downloadable conditional access and digital rights management suite. TRE-FOR offers regional customers Internet, telephone and TV services delivered by a range of Danish and international service providers.

TRE-FOR said it evaluated other content protection vendors, but chose Widevine because it was the only provider to offer a downloadable client with a PC-based Windows Media Player plug-in that let consumers watch TV on PCs.

The Denmark provider also said Widevine was committed to meet emerging needs as it evaluated Web-based video services delivered to PCs and mobile phones.

Widevine Cypher encrypts both digital broadcast and video-on-demand (VOD) content, regardless of video infrastructure, network protocols or compression technologies.
