OpenTV 2 Middleware

OpenTV 2 provides the essential operating software for lower-end digital television receivers. It abstracts the underlying hardware of a digital television receiver from applications that provide the end-user experience. This core operating software and abstraction ensure that common services can be provided and effectively maintained across a diverse range of receivers, enabling a service provider to have a true multi-vendor receiver/set-top box strategy, driving down receiver costs through competition.

MediaLive Service Platform


AnyCAST PRM is Nagra’s DRM framework for video-on-demand (VOD), digital video recorders (DVRs) and the propagation of content between consumer devices or home networking.

The framework allows an operator to control content consumption and distribution via several kinds of services. AnyCAST PRM enables a secure PVR/DVR recording and playback. It protects the over-the-top delivery of both linear and VoD content. It supports sharing content across multiple devices, within authorized domains. It can also serve as a bridge to DTCP-IP devices to securely extend the experience outside of the service provider’s own ecosystem. All these services are fully controlled by the service providers through a flexible set of usage rules. AnyCAST PRM provides full control and independence to service providers in the management of devices and their entitlements. Read more >>
