Irdeto Spokesperson to Define the Business Imperative, Challenges and Opportunities for Delivering Content Anytime, Anywhere and on Any Device

Irdeto spokesperson, Christopher Schouten, will illustrate why the evolution of broadband presents opportunities and challenges for operators and the importance of effective content lifecycle security to protect premium content. During the “Extending the Video Experience to Multiple Screens Evolution” panel at Connections Europe 2010, he will advise on the potential to extend brand value as content providers and operators explore new distribution opportunities across multiple platforms and devices, including mobile.

Schouten will argue that operators must address five key areas in order to implement a viable and sustainable business model that will successfully deliver video content on multiple devices:

1. How content from different sources can be managed and distributed efficiently and in real time to provide the best consumer experience.

2. How user rights can be centrally controlled and synchronized with the operator’s existing subscriber management system to provide a true “any time, any place, any device” experience.

3. How the stringent content security requirements of Hollywood studios and other premium content creators can be met, and maintained, over the economic life of the content when it is delivered over broadband and stored on portable devices and in unsecure environments.

4. How to overcome the challenges of protecting premium content through effective content lifecycle security.

5. How content can be monetized easily through online billing, end-to-end management systems with minimum effort and longevity of security systems.

Christopher is a specialist in Broadband, Digital TV and digital media technologies, especially related to content security and user experience. Christopher joined the company in 2001 and has held various positions in marketing and product management. Christopher’s focus is on enhancing the consumer experience of digital television by enabling pay-TV operators to offer highly personalized and tailored content to each individual.
