CAMBRIDGE, U.K. -- Delivering pay-TV class content security on a smart TV platform capable of supporting open applications is now a reality on the MeeGo operating system, according to a new white paper published today by Amino Communications.

Amino has used the MeeGo OS to support the world’s first hybrid/OTT service deployment by a tier one operator, and believes its real world OTT experience and innovation has given unique insights into the development of new security frameworks to protect content from piracy and malicious attack.

Until now, many industry experts have believed that this type of configuration can only be supported by using advanced and complex security measures. However, in the white paper entitled “MeeGo Security Concepts”, Amino has identified ways in which the security measures designed for mobile phone security within the MeeGo operating system can be adapted for the smart TV environment quickly and effectively without the additional costs associated with traditional content security measures.

The white paper presents a methodology which isolates the application inside MeeGo without requiring full virtualisation or sandboxing – the standard “heavyweight” means of securing content.

In a separate release:

CAMBRIDGE, U.K. -- Telefonia Bonairiano (Telbo), the leading telecommunications and media service provider on Bonaire, has selected Amino’s A140 HD next generation IPTV set-top boxes for the deployment of high definition television services.

The first provider in the Caribbean to deliver leading edge TV services across a mixed xDSL and Fiber network, Telbo is transitioning to HD services to enable its current and new customers with the highest possible quality TV experience.

The company, which also offers fixed line telephony and broadband Internet, launched IPTV services in 2007.
