BELFAST and DALLAS -- Reinforcing its commitment to deliver highly protected content and revenue systems to the ever-changing digital broadcasting industry, Latens Systems, has ported its IP CAS to Texas Instruments’ [NYSE: TXN] (TI) digital media processor platform. Now, a new generation of content-oriented services, such as Pay-TV and Video on Demand (VOD) services via IP set top boxes, personal video recorders (PVR), personal computers (PC) and other consumer devices, will be protected against piracy. The combination of Latens’ solution with TI’s TMS320DM64x generation of high performance, fully programmable digital media processors, delivers an optimal and secure transaction system to equipment manufacturers and IPTV operators, protecting their broadband content and revenue streams. This new solution will be showcased at TI’s booth (# SL3845, south hall) at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) conference in Las Vegas, April 18-21, 2005.

Enabling flexibility in design and rapid implementation of new services, Latens’ open platform content and revenue protection system has been designed to protect and control access to valuable content in Video on Demand (VOD), IPTV and other content delivery applications. Latens’ security systems employ new IT security techniques and use the power of two-way digital networks to provide next generation Conditional Access (CA) for broadband and digital cable networks through Secure Software Modules (SSM) in the set top box. The SSM’s are monitored and managed across the network and whenever necessary are updated or replaced through the network.

“The integration of our next generation security architecture with TI’s high-performance DSP’s enables IPTV and Pay-TV operators to get to market in record time and with set top boxes that combine high-levels of security with advanced new functionalities,” says Jason Rogers, CTO, Latens.
