MobiTV to extend datacenter to manage all types of motion picture content

Infotech Lead America: MobiTV has extended its datacenter to manage all types of motion picture content for multi-screen delivery.

Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has surveyed MobiTV’s methods and technologies for securely ingesting, encoding and storing movies. The MPAA assessment opens the door for MobiTV to ingest media libraries from major movie studios, storing movie content in high-resolution formats for multi-screen delivery.

MobiTV’s platform leverages its own digital rights management (DRM), approved by major movie studios, to offer a secure content-delivery mechanism in a cost-effective, scalable manner. This implementation is designed to meet security standards currently set by the content industry for distribution of content across multiple screens.

“To manage and prepare the high-quality source files for our partners we need an infrastructure capable of reliably and securely ingesting the file, encoding it and storing it for downloading or streaming,” said MobiTV CEO Charlie Nooney.

As part of MobiTV’s ongoing commitment to delivering movie services for their partners, MobiTV joined the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem LLC (DECE) last fall, an open consortium of more than 70 companies dedicated to facilitating the development and operation of Ultraviolet services.

Recently, MobiTV also announced a collaboration with Texas Instruments to enhance delivery of secure HD content on multi-screen devices by optimizing its technology on TI’s OMAP platform, integrating MobiTV’s digital rights management (DRM) solution and media playback technology with TI’s M-Shield security solution.

MobiTV’s connected media solutions are tailored for IPTV operators, as well as mobile TV and over-the-top customers including AT&T, Deutsche Telekom, Sprint, T-Mobile, TELUS, US Cellular, and Verizon among others.
