TWC picks Motorola Mobility SecureMedia

Time Warner Cable has chosen to deploy Motorola Mobility's SecureMedia content security solution to help its streamline its efforts to delivering streaming and security to multiple device types.

The vendor's SecureMedia Encryptonite ONE HLS+ solution, part of its Motorola Medios suite, is a single platform using HLS adaptive streaming that helps operators avoid the cost and complications of operating multiple streaming platforms and security systems to reach multiple device types, according to Motorola. The platform enables service providers to encode and encrypt content just once within the same product for delivery to such devices, rather than multiple times in different systems for different devices.

Ongoing fragmentation of mobile devices, operating systems, encoding and delivery methods has led to a fragmented environment of streaming and security solutions employing different protocols and evolving standards. However, the HLS standard used by Motorola Mobility is already widely accepted in the content and broadcast sectors.

Motorola SecureMedia will be demonstrating the Encryptonite ONE HLS+ multi-screen content delivery solution at The Cable Show in Boston this week.

In related news, Motorola Mobility also got some good news from China this weekend. That country's anti-trust regulators have approved Google's pending $12.5 billion acquisition of Motorola Mobility. The approval from China was seen as one of the last hurdles to closing the deal, so an official closing could come within days.
