By Telecom Lead Team: MobiTV, a provider of managed
mobile TV and video solutions, has collaborated with Texas Instruments to
use its OMAP platform. The collaboration is aimed at enhance delivery of secure
HD content on multiscreen devices.
This association has enabled MobiTV to develop a mosaic
viewing experience within a single screen that enables secure simultaneous
playback of up to six live feeds.
This experience is made possible through the integration
of MobiTV’s Digital Rights Management (DRM) solution and Media
Playback technology with TI’s M-Shield security solution running in a trusted
execution environment (TEE).
“Our collaboration with Texas Instruments and its
OMAP4460 processor is a first step toward more widespread secure delivery of
high-definition content across multiple IP-connected devices like tablets,
phones and IP-connected set-top boxes,” said MobiTV Vice
President of Technology Cedric Fernandes.
“MobiTV has successfully integrated its Media
Playback and DRM technologies with the OMAP platform’s end-to-end security
solution to create a secure foundation that leading content providers can trust
with their premium content,” said Fred Cohen, director, OMAP
ecosystem team, TI.
The company said by combining the newly developed
solution with the OMAP 4 platform’s Imagination Technologies’ SGX5 series
graphics cores, a full HD video accelerator, enhanced memory and other
processing features, users can have a video entertainment experience that can
be enjoyed from any authorized mobile device.
In facilitating the integration of MobiTV service onto
the TI platform, Trusted Logic Mobility provided its expertise in the use of
the secure middleware component (SMC) developed for TI’s M-Shield.
Recently, MobiTV appointed Paul Burmester to the role of general manager and senior vice
president for EMEA to strengthen presence in the region.
