Irdeto signs agreement with IDway

Irdeto, the proven expert in content security for digital TV, IPTV and mobile networks, has licensed IDway, a leading supplier of software solutions for digital TV consumer equipment, to integrate Irdeto’s conditional access technology with IDway-J middleware solution.
IDway can now provide an integrated software solution to STB manufacturers who want to quickly mass-produce STBs (cable, satellite or terrestrial) for network operators who want to deliver an interactive end-user experience with the unparalleled protection of the Irdeto Digital TV conditional access system.
IDway-J middleware, which is fully compliant to DVB standards, includes a customisable user interface with Western and Asian languages support and optional PVR extensions. In addition, it provides a pre-certified version of the Irdeto Digital TV client software. This means that the time necessary for the rigorous testing of an STB is decreased, ensuring a quicker time to market while still ensuring that the end-consumer receives a high-quality STB that will work according to their expectations.
This software solution is now available on different hardware reference designs and will be extended to new chipsets during 2006.
According to Gerard Pazuelo, CEO of Idway, said: "This agreement is an important milestone for IDway because it is the tangible result of months of effort from our engineering team to develop, integrate, test and package a complete solution ready to be deployed to Pay TV services using the Irdeto conditional access technology.”
"IDway has already proven their value to Irdeto in the Italian market by enabling a quick roll-out of terrestrial STBs for our customer Telecom Italia Media. We are pleased to extend our cooperation to other markets such as China”, said Graham Kill, CEO of Irdeto. “Our partnership with IDway significantly reduces the time to market for set top box manufacturers wanting to supply receivers to our customers.”
Irdeto is a subsidiary of a multinational media group Naspers.
