BELFAST -- Latens Systems, Europe’s leading provider of IPTV Conditional Access, today announced that following Multimedia Polska awarding it a contract to provide Conditional Access technology to protect the revenues and content for its IPTV launch, the Latens solution is now installed and fully deployed. Multimedia Polska, which presently has over 450 000 analogue cable subscribers, launched its IPTV service in the second quarter of 2006.

The Latens solution is part of a pre-integrated IPTV solution chosen by Multimedia Polska, which includes: Tilgin Mood 300 IP Set-top Boxes, Latens FCAS Content & Revenue Protection and Minerva Network’s iTVManager middleware. The ecosystem, which was launched in March 2006, provides customers with a seamless and secure migration path to advanced IPTV services. Being part of a pre-integrated solution enabled the Latens security to be installed soon after contract signing.

“During our evaluation of security technologies it was apparent that there were few vendors that could meet our needs. We chose Latens because it was part of a pre-integrated solution that offered all the functionality we need, both now and in the future,” says Bartlomiej Kasinski, Director of Strategy and Development of Multimedia Polska.

The IPTV launch brings IPTV services to four geographically diverse regions of Poland. Multimedia Polska plans to roll out Digital TV throughout Poland in a staged approach to increase viewer satisfaction through enhanced TV services, including advanced navigation and EPGs, VOD, interactive programming and other new exciting content services.

Bartlomiej Kasinski, Multimedia Polska concludes: “We have ambitious plans to ramp up our roll-out of Digital TV services throughout Poland, both on our PSTN and cable networks. The flexibility of Latens technology means that we are free to plan a network architecture and deployment strategy that can best provide Poland’s TV viewers with the most exciting new TV services possible.”
