Irdeto has announced a partnership with Mediaset España to deliver content through its OTT service, Mitele Plus.
The Spanish broadcaster used Irdeto Control to simplify its operations in the following ways:
- Supporting multiple digital rights management (DRM) systems
- Scaling to the requirements of major live sports events
- Handling an optimised head-end setup sharing infrastructure for multiple daily live events
Mitele Plus is available on smartphones, laptops, tablets and Smart TV apps, and hosts premium sports content including La Liga, the UEFA Champions League, Europa League and Copa Del Rey.
Shane McCarthy, COO Video Entertainment, Irdeto, said: “There is huge demand for premium OTT services across Europe and live sports rights can be a real differentiator, which makes it crucial to ensure the security of this premium content against the backdrop of a great cross-device user experience.
“With the implementation of Irdeto Control, we are able to take on the complexity of managing security, fragmented technologies and back-end workflow for Mediaset España and enable them to focus on delivering value to their customers.”
