VOD / IPTV mobile
Our enduser interface for mobile devices is offered in two versions:
- Web based application compatible with mobile browsers. The portal allows for browsing catalogue, ordering movies, logging in and watching the content. For streaming we use apple http live streaming for IPhone/IPad devices and RTSP for other handsets supporting this protocol which include Blackberry handsets and Android devices.
- Standalone application for Android developed in Adobe AIR. This application uses RTMP streaming.
Security: the content is protected from unauthorized access using secure ticketing model in which the system generates dynamic links which are unique for each user and each session. The user has to log in first providing the username and password. When she wants to watch the content the server sends back a link which is valid only throughout the user’s session. In addition the user can receive only one stream at the same time. This solution guarantees that only registered users have access to the content and that the user’s account can not be shared with others.
The security is implented in all our VOD clients including mobile portal with apple http live streaming, RTSP and RTMP.
Content encryption: the content encryption refers only to encrypting the streams so they cannot be intercepted over the network. If your content requires stream encryption we do support it for the apple http live streaming (using AES encryption) and RTMP protocol but not for RTSP. Therefore in such a case it is recommended to use the AIR based application for Android devices.
For Blackberry handsets we are going to have the standalone application with encryption in near future.
