Just about every technology company uses the giant IBC trade show to bring out their latest gizmos, and Belfast-based conditional access company Latens is no exception.

Latens is showcasing its latest software-based CA, version ECO 4.1 for cable and IPTV deployment. “This new release broadens the scope of Latens ECO, a single platform combining middleware and conditional access, bringing true multi screen convergence to both cable and IPTV operators,” said the company.

"There is an elemental change in the way people are consuming content. The consumer is truly at the heart of making TV an everywhere and anywhere entertainment experience to fit with their lifestyle and schedule. In response to this we are bringing state of the art technologies and next generation features and services to the TV through the latest development in our ECO middleware," said Jeremy Thorp, Latens' CEO.
