Singapore – Irdeto, a global software security and media technology company, has announced that IGLOO has selected Irdeto Cloaked CA (conditional access) to securely deliver premium content over the ground-breaking new TV service. IGLOO is a new television offering launched as a joint venture between SKY and TVNZ.
Once connected to IGLOO, a pre-pay TV service that will be available for purchase in retail outlets, customers will have access to FTA channels and the option to purchase a pack of 11 digital channels. The device also includes WiFi and Ethernet connections to access on demand content.
Irdeto Cloaked CA is a fully featured and renewable cardless conditional access solution that will enable IGLOO to deliver this content securely, while avoiding the hassle and cost associated with swapping out or replacing smart cards. As part of the agreement, Irdeto will also provide full implementation and testing of the solution.
“The launch of IGLOO is perfectly timed to take advantage of the digital switch over and it will give New Zealanders more choice,” said Doug Lowther, Executive Vice President, Digital TV, Irdeto.
