BARCELONA, SPAIN .-(Mobile World Congress, NDS Booth AV100) – NDS, the leading provider of technology solutions for digital pay-TV, today announced the integration of NDS VideoGuard Mobile™ conditional access (CA) technology with Expway’s FastESG™ Electronic Service Guide (ESG). This solution will be demonstrated for the first time at the Mobile World Congress, Barcelona, February 11-14, 2008.

The solution supports both the Open Security Framework and the OMA BCAST Smart Card Profile, with additional profiles on the roadmap. Based on the NDS Unified Headend™, which manages rights and business offers across multiple platforms, NDS VideoGuard Mobile enables mobile operators to launch mobile TV services on current standards immediately, with the confidence that they can migrate to additional standards economically and smoothly when they are available. The solution provides the necessary security for monetizing mobile TV content while ensuring that users enjoy a personalized mobile TV experience.

“The integration of the NDS CA system with the Expway ESG means that European operators need not be concerned about launching with a specific profile. NDS’ ability to support multiple standards concurrently means that our mutual customers are able to migrate to a new standard seamlessly, with no service disruption to customers, while maintaining key vendor relationships,” said Nicolas Choquart, NDS Director of Mobile and New Business, EMEA.

“The end-to-end pre-integration of Expway Electronic Service Guide with NDS conditional access will accelerate the deployment of mobile TV and hence will promote the distribution of high-value content over mobile TV networks. The joining of forces of two such well established leaders in their respective fields will help us lead the industry in terms of time-to-market on both the operators’ and the manufacturers’ sides,” said Nicolas Andrieu, Expway’s Sales Director.
