The WiNetworks Hybrid WiMAX DVB technology enables satellite broadcasters to offer triple play services over their existing networks.
NDS and WiNetworks teamed at IBC to demonstrate an integrated triple play solution for DBS operators that relies on the VideoGuard conditional access system to secure both DVB and IP video streams delivered simultaneously from satellite and WiMAX infrastructure.
The WiNetworks patented Hybrid WiMAX DVB (HWDV) technology enables satellite digital broadcasters (DBS) to offer triple play services such as telephony, broadband Internet, VOD, always-on interactive TV services and future mobile support, over their existing network infrastructures.
The integrated NDS and WiNetworks technologies enables the upgrade of existing infrastructure to a combined broadcast and broadband IP network while retaining the features of secure distribution, billing and purchasing rights.
The companies said their system enables DBS operators an instant, low-cost migration path to triple play services that can be immediately presented to customers.
