The Cloud Pass authentication platform designed by Argentina's Toolbox has been selected by Turner for its TV everywhere platform, Space Go, in Latin America.

smartboxturnerToolbox, which continues growing as a solutions provider for TV everywhere and over-the-top (OTT) services in Latin America, will enable Space's subscribers to login on Android and iOS mobile screens.

Through a single sign-in process, mobile users will be able to consume live and video-on-demand (VOD) content without having to repeat the authentication process when choosing a different device.

"Users will be able to start watching a movie on one screen and continue on a different one, whether it's a tablet or a smartphone," explained Pamela Valdecantos, account executive, Toolbox. "We have designed a secure but simple process which improves user experience."

Cloud Pass is cloud-based and connects programme makers such as Turner with pay-TV operators which distribute the signals. "Content programmers can be connected to different operators, or a single operator can be connected to different signals. Everything is possible with a single log-in process," explained Valdecantos.

Toolbox's authentication service leads the ID management market in Latin America and is integrated with many TV everywhere and OTT services in the region, including DirecTV, FOX and Megacable.
