- Morega Systems enters into technology partnership with NDS
- NDS integrates VideoGuard Connect™, the DRM for multi-platform pay-TV, with Morega technology

NDS today announced it has entered into a technology partnership with Morega Systems, a developer of content portability solutions. NDS has integrated VideoGuard Connect™, its next generation DRM for multi-platform pay-TV, with Morega’s content delivery solution for multi-channel operators.

Morega’s technology enables payTV operators to deploy TV Everywhere services that allow subscribers to consume premium content on a range of devices including smartphones, tablets and PCs. By using VideoGuard Connect, Morega is able to offer end-to-end service protection for sideloaded content.

Philip Poulidis, president and CEO of Morega Systems, said: “We believe that in the coming years consumers will expect media mobility to be a standard feature of any payTV package. This is a service that is in great demand from users but one that can be a challenge for operators since they have to guarantee they can protect premium content from the threat of file sharing. By working with NDS as our security partner we are able to give customers even greater confidence that they can make the most of their most valuable asset — content — without the threat of it being compromised during the move to new platforms.”

Commenting on the partnership Nigel Smith, VP and CMO at NDS, said: “We aim to support operators looking to take advantage of the full range of portable devices that are coming onto the market. We’re extremely pleased to be working with Morega as they recognise the importance of multi-screen solutions and have the vision to make this a reality.”

VideoGuard Connect offers protection of pay-TV services to the most popular devices including the PC, Mac, games consoles, iOS (iPad, iPhone) and Android mobile and tablet devices. For further information on VideoGuard Connect, visit http://www.nds.com/....
