By employing Irdeto Control, Mediaset España has been able to simplify the operations and workflow by supporting multiple digital rights management (DRM) systems, scale to the requirements of major live sports events and handle an optimised head-end setup sharing infrastructure for multiple daily live events.
According to Shane McCarthy, COO Video Entertainment, Irdeto, “there is huge demand for premium OTT services across Europe and live sports rights can be a real differentiator, which makes it crucial to ensure the security of this premium content against the backdrop of a great cross-device user experience.
“With the implementation of Irdeto Control, we are able to take on the complexity of managing security, fragmented technologies and back-end workflow for Mediaset España and enable them to focus on delivering value to their customers.”
Mitele Plus holds rights to premium sports content including La Liga, the UEFA Champions League, Europa League and Copa Del Rey. It is available on smartphones, laptops, tablets and smart TV apps.
