    PETACH TIKVA, Israel, Sept. 6/CNW/ -

    
    Highlights:

    -   End-to-end P2P solution for service providers, delivering
        premium digital content over the Internet direct to user PCs

    -   Market-leading DRM protection for high-value content

    -   Accelerated content delivery for improved user experience
    

    Oversi, experts in Peer-to-Peer (P2P) caching and content delivery 
solutions, and NDS, the leading provider of technology solutions for digital
pay-TV, are presenting their integrated, end-to-end solution for delivering 
secured, DRM-protected content over P2P networks direct to PCs and other 
portable media devices at IBC 2007. (Visit the NDS Stand No. 1.171.)
    The joint Oversi and NDS solution uses the power and economics of P2P 
distribution to extend the delivery of broadcast content to new users and new
media devices with assured quality of service.
    The solution combines NDS VideoGuard PC(TM), a complete DRM and service
platform for PCs, with Oversi's powerful P2P caching and content delivery
platform, OverCache(TM). Based on distributed grid computing technology and
massive throughput, OverCache enhances P2P content distribution by delivering
more bandwidth to users over existing infrastructures, guaranteeing superior
quality of service. With the P2P technology embedded in its client/server
software, NDS' VideoGuard PC retrieves files from the P2P network, powered by
OverCache, enabling accelerated peer-assisted content distribution.
    Integrating P2P technology with VideoGuard(R) DRM content protection, 
the joint NDS/Oversi solution enables content providers to meet the demand 
for live TV programs and Video on Demand services with complete, built-in, 
security safeguards, while allowing flexible business models.
    Leveraging the P2P network's inherent resources, service providers and
content providers also benefit from delivery that is more cost-efficient. With
this joint solution, incremental costs decrease with the addition of more
users. Highly scalable, the solution enables service providers and
broadcasters to cope with the growing demand for bandwidth without overloading
the network.
    Joseph Deutsch, NDS Vice President of Business Development, said,
"Content providers have been hesitant to use P2P networks for premium content
delivery because they were not assured that their content would be secure.
They now have a solution they can trust, protected by our proven VideoGuard
conditional access and DRM technology, used by over 75 million TV subscribers
worldwide. This joint solution enables our customers to scale their services
to meet the growing consumer demand for broadcast-quality Internet TV and VOD
- anytime, anywhere."
    Eitan Efron, Vice President Marketing and Business Development of Oversi,
said, "Taking advantage of P2P networks, this joint solution from Oversi and
NDS provides an excellent distribution channel for premium content while
ensuring minimum operating costs for service providers and broadcasters. Our
solution also delivers long-tail content with good quality of service, opening
the door for new P2P-driven monetization opportunities."
