nCUBE and Widevine to Deliver Fast and Secure Video ContentWidevine's "Encryption on the Fly" Communications Security Teamed up With nCUBE's Scalability and Throughput (October 30, 2001)
Integrating nCUBE's n4 Streaming Media Appliance with Widevine's Widevine Cypher and Widevine VOD products, the companies will provide broadband service operators, media companies and entertainment companies a secure means for deploying digital content on-demand to consumer devices such as the personal computer and television set-top box.
"Securing valuable and proprietary digital content from being stolen, hacked or otherwise compromised is a top priority for our existing and prospective customers," said Michael Pohl, president, nCUBE. "nCUBE and Widevine will fill the security hole that broadband operators and the entertainment industry are facing."
nCUBE is a provider of scalable streaming media solutions for all broadband networks -- cable, DSL and IP. nCUBE's streaming technology gives consumers full VCR functionality when viewing movies and other interactive programs on their PCs and television sets. nCUBE's hypercube interconnect architecture provides scalability, reliability and flexibility for applications such as video-on-demand (VOD) and network personal video recording (nPVR). The n4 introduces the capability to stream "standards-based" mid-band video over IP networks. nCUBE is partnering with pioneers who are on the forefront of this evolving technology, including RealNetworks.
Widevine Cypher is the a complete streaming media security solution, offering transparency at both the server and client end and incorporating client-side anti-tampering technology for broadcast and traditional VOD content. Widevine Cypher's patent-pending "encryption on the fly" architecture implements security in a network bridge, rather than adding it to streaming servers. All streaming traffic passing through the bridge is secured, regardless of media format.
Widevine VOD can be co-developed for a specific VOD product in development, or deployed in an existing set-top box or network. Widevine VOD has the power to secure digital content as it travels through the pipe to a set-top box, PVR or hand-held device. It can then secure that same content during playback, helping to alleviate security concerns and speed deployment VOD services.
