Verizon Picks Motorola Medios Content Security

Verizon (News - Alert) has recently deployed SecureMedia Encryptonite ONE HLS+ from Motorola Mobility to secure its FiOS (News - Alert) Flex View multiscreen content service. 

SecureMedia’s Encryptonite ONE HLS solution offers a streamlined process for service providers to ingest, transcode and securely deliver live and on-demand content via standard HTTP methods and infrastructure. SecureMedia has added layers of its award-winning Encryptonite ONE digital rights management protection to the specified HLS encryption method to meet the stringent security requirements of Hollywood studios and major broadcasters for licensing and distribution of their premium content.

This new deployment allows Verizon FiOS subscribers to use Flex View to watch their favorite network entertainment such as TV shows from NBC, WB and E!, plus thousands of Hollywood titles from all the major studios—streamed to the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, Android devices, and select Samsung (News - Alert) connected TVs.

"Now, more than ever, content protection is absolutely necessary to deliver today's entertainment to multiple screens," said Peter Burke, VP of Product Management, Converged Solutions, Motorola (News - Alert) Mobility. "Our Medios portfolio is dedicated to helping our service provider partners like Verizon meet consumer demand for multi-screen experiences. SecureMedia Encryptonite ONE™ HLS+ is a key component of that portfolio, as the leading solution widely available today that has been internationally approved by Hollywood studios."

By using the flexible, scalable solution, Encryptonite ONE HLS+, Verizon can offer its subscribers anytime, anywhere access to secure, premium entertainment on multiple devices.
