New Parks Associates White Paper Discusses Latest Security Challenges for Pay-TV Operators and Content Owners
Oberhausen, Germany, August 28, 2013 − ACCESS CO., LTD, a global provider of advanced software technologies to the mobile, beyond-PC and digital TV markets, today announced that Parks Associates’ new white paper: “New Market Realties in Content Delivery” is now available for complimentary download at:
The paper examines the ways in which security and multiscreen interact for operators, the content industry and the consumer. A key finding in the Park Associates paper is that: “Smart TV manufacturers will hold a prime seat at the table if they develop a future-proof roadmap that allows for affordable upgrades to their own technology.”
Parks Associates also provides a reminder that usability is key, stating: “While the evolution of connected CE devices causes consumers to expect to view the content of their choice on any device, at any time, and anywhere, the multiple options threaten to create an environment that is too technologically difficult for the average consumer to navigate.”
“It’s interesting that Parks Associates identifies the security concerns that pay-TV providers, CE manufacturers, and content owners are facing whilst also addressing their eagerness to expand their delivery of low and high value content anytime and anywhere,” said Kunihiro Ishiguro, CTO of ACCESS. “Our solutions provide an extra layer of ‘studio-confident’ security that offers a safer approach to seamlessly share their content throughout the home, and are supported by robust multiscreen technologies such as DLNA, HTML5, and OTT/social TV platforms to ensure that desirable experiences can be delivered and monetized on all screens”.
