Logitech using Irdeto security
Logitech is securing content delivered via its Logitech Revue box and service with technology sourced from Irdeto, the latter said.
Logitech Revue is another over-the-top box that comes with apps to connect directly to Netflix, Pandora, Napster and other companies distributing content through the Internet. Logitech Revue is part of the Google TV universe of Android-based OTT providers.
Logitech is drawing on Irdeto's technology to deliver premium content services through apps such as Netflix Watch Instantly.
Ashish Arora, Logitech vice president and general manager of the digital home group, said: "We are working with Irdeto to offer a safe environment for premium content services. We selected Irdeto because the company delivers a very flexible and reliable solution for protecting high-value content over broadband – without compromising user experience."
David Canellos, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Irdeto, said: "Because our customers' business models require a safe and secure environment, we worked closely with Logitech to ensure that sensitive assets are protected from tampering. In the rapidly growing broadband media landscape, opening the doors for content consumption is the underlying foundation for the success of offerings like the Logitech Revue."
Cloakware is also being used by Adobe, Netflix and Sony, Irdeto said.
