NDS and Frontier Silicon have signed a collaborative agreement for joint development and marketing of secure content protection and digital rights management (DRM) for mobile digital TV and DAB digital radio.

The agreement between the two companies is expected to address the security concerns that content providers have in releasing premium content into the high growth MDTV (mobile digital television) and DAB radio markets.

NDS and Frontier Silicon will develop a secure end-to-end solution with content securely encoded at the head-end, transmitted and securely received or consumed by users with appropriate digital rights. The tight coupling of NDS' content protection technology, mVideoGuardR, to Frontier Silicon's hardware will ensure content providers get one of the most secure mobile TV and radio delivery mechanisms in the industry.

The companies will demonstrate such secure downloads with NDS' mVideoGuard conditional access (CA), DRM and electronic program guide (EPG) solutions over Frontier Silicon's T-DMB, DVB-H and DAB product platforms. Initial prototype platforms will be showcased at IBC on stand number 6.006 from September 9-13 in Amsterdam.
