Viaccess has announced a partnership with LG Electronics, Enensys, Expway and Sagem Orga to launch a new end-to-end mobile TV system based on the OMA BCAST SmartCard Profile Standard (SCP).
The France Telecom-owned security company says the initiative is designed to provide customers and operators with a production ready end-to-end environment.
It will include the mobile version of the Viaccess conditional access system and handsets provided LG Electronics. Interoperability tests have already made and the partnership is already prepared for a deployment.
The first public demonstration of the system was made at the recent IBC 2008 expo in Amsterdam.
