Arris and France's EONA delivering IPTV to hospitality and hospitals

French IPTV and VOD software provider EONA is using Arris (Nasdaq: ARRS) technology to secure premium content that it's delivering to 45 hotels and hospitals in seven countries.

EONA, a joint company release said, will use SecureMedia Encryptonite ONE, a technology that became part of the Arris product portfolio when the Georgia firm acquired Motorola Home, to protect content being delivered across 5,500 IPTV access points within the hotels and hospitals.

The Arris technology "gives us the protection and assurance to provide a variety of premium video to our customers with earlier release windows," EONA's managing director Antoine Girard said in the release. "With this level of protection we can meet the ever-growing requirements of content owners such as UIP, FilmBank and Canal+ while serving the best new content to our primary clientele of international hotels and community hospitals."

EONA's video services and packages are delivered worldwide to travel brands like Club Med, Best Western and Orange which makes it "a leader in content distribution to the hospitality and healthcare industries," Steve McCaffery, Arris' EMEA general manager said in the press release. "These industries require special consideration for content protection because of their associated 'public' environments. SecureMedia allows partners like EONA to confidently enter these markets, know that they're up-to-date with the ever-changing content protection requirements."

EONA is also using the content product to meet content owners' "stringent security requirements," especially those from Canal+ which "now requires advanced encryption of its content prior to delivery to the hospitality and healthcare environments," the press release said.
