EchoStar Europe integrates Latens

EchoStar Europe has integrated Latens’ card-less CA and middleware solution with its hybrid HDX-600 platform to create a secure and readily deployable solution for IPTV and broadband TV operators.

"In order to support our strategy in Europe, it is imperative that we partner with a number of the industry’s leading conditional access and middleware solutions", commented Rick Smith, VP Sales and Marketing for EchoStar Europe. "This is one of our first planned integrations in the IP space and provides a middleware and CA platform for adaptation and deployment by IPTV and hybrid IPTV operators".

Meanwhile parent company EchoStar has reported total revenue of $483 million for the quarter ended September 30th, 2009, a 21.6 per cent decrease compared with $616 million for the corresponding period in 2008.
