Mobile and TV software vendor ACCESS will show how HTML5 can be combined with the DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) platform to help operators and content owners control and monetize media sharing in the connected home.
ACCESS will be demonstrating its NetFront Living Connect DLNA Technology Component and NetFront Browser NX solutions in the context of multiscreen monetization in the home.
This will involve media sharing, including LiveTV streams and Personal Video Recorder (PVR) content via managed set top boxes or unmanaged connected devices such as laptops, tablets and smartphones. Such media sharing has been enabled through integration of the ACCESS products with its partner Zenterio’s operating system for TV client devices.
With the help of DLNA, ACCESS can support Conditional Access (CA) systems already deployed by operators to enable what the company calls ‘studio confident’ content protection. “Our solutions provide an extra layer of ‘studio-confident’ security that offers a safer approach to seamlessly share content throughout the home, and are supported by robust multi-screen technologies such as DLNA, HTML5, and OTT/social TV platforms to ensure that desirable experiences can be delivered and monetized on all screens,” said Kiyo Oishi, Chairman, ACCESS Europe.
Alongside various demonstrations, ACCESS will provide complementary versions of a Parks Associates whitepaper examining how security and multiscreen can interact for operators, the content industry and end consumers alike. The whitepaper emphasizes the importance of ease of use in enhancing security while also meeting consumer expectations to be able to view the content of their choice on any device at anytime and place.
