DTLA approves Nagra DRM for home network premium content streaming

Leading security technology provider Nagra has gained the seal of approval from the Digital Transmission Licensing Administrator (DTLA) for the retransmission of premium content.

Founded in 1999 by Hitachi, Intel, Panasonic, Sony and Toshiba, the DTLA licenses content protection technology ensuring consumers' reasonable and customary right to make personal use copies and to enjoy that content digitally networked throughout the home. Its Digital Transmission Content Protection (DTCP) technology has been adopted in CE products from set top boxes and digital TVs to Blu-ray and DVD recorders by a spectrum of cable, satellite, and media services, over a variety of wireless and wired interfaces.

Nagra's MediaAccess Persistent Rights Management (PRM) technology was previously approved by the DTLA for the storage of DTCP content and in this latest development becomes the only pay-TV operator-controlled DRM that is authorised for its retransmission, that is streaming, as well. This endorsement, says Nagra, reinforce MediaAccess PRM as the DRM of choice for services providers wishing to deploy secure home networking solutions.

"This latest approval puts NAGRA on a very short list of trusted and approved providers of home networking DRM technologies in the world and is another vote of confidence in our solution," said Philippe Stransky, Chief Architect for NAGRA. "Whether it's enabling access from any mobile device to content stored on a DVR or live streaming from a gateway device, NAGRA MediaAccess PRM enables highly popular and flexible home networking consumer use cases that help pay-TV operators win and keep their customer, while offering peace of mind through robust Hollywood studio-approved content security."

The solution was also recently approved by the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE) for the streaming of premium content to open devices.
