SmartLabs LLC Extends Premium Video Entertainment to the PC Platform, Secured by the Encryptonite ONE™ System
SecureMedia protects Russia’s eminent supplier of converged service delivery platforms for interactive television over fixed and wireless networks
SPOTLIGHT IBC2009, Amsterdam, 7 SEPTEMBER 2009—SecureMedia, the technology leader in open content protection software for secure video and multimedia delivery over IP networks and SmartLabs LLC, a leader in SDP for interactive digital television, innovative client applications and user interfaces for STBs, announced today the launch of the secure SmartTUBE PC Player, a fully customizable platform application extension to the popular SmartTUBE SDP- Converged service delivery platform, protected by the SecureMedia’s Encryptonite ONE™ System. PC users will be able to enjoy the same high quality (MPEG-4 H.264) viewing experience “on the go” as they do from their home while service providers and broadcasters can extend or create new revenue-generating business opportunities.
Unique to this PC Player application and a testament to the flexibility of SmartLabs’ SmartTUBE SDP is its ability for dynamic UI customization that easily creates and automatically publishes the same interface and user experience for both STB and PC platform. The Encryptonite ONE™ System provides the non-stop content protection to enable access to the richest offering of premium digital content and video-on-demand services.
The SmartTUBE PC Player is a member of SmartLabs’ SmartTUBE UI, an innovative client applications based on available IPTV industry standards and universal cross-platform graphical engine, QT for Embedded Linux from Nokia, which supports a wide range of client devices, i.e. STBs, mobile multimedia devices, digital players, communicators, mobile phones, PCs, etc.
“Having has been chosen by the biggest IPTV service providers in Eastern Europe, SmartLabs LLC required a proven and flexible content security solution on PCs to meet our customer’s digital entertainment needs”, said Mikhail Grachev, CEO of SmartLabs LLC. “Opposite to existing protected PC players in the market created by non SDP specialty vendors that either use a proprietary technology, possess a very limited interface or lack of service customization access for third-parties, our SmartTUBE PC Player delivers service providers a full-functional PC Player with rich-animated user interface, all available IPTV services and now secured with a leading content protection software. We believe that now service providers can extend their services across different end-points to make entertainment experience more flexible for subscribers.”
“SmartLabs is a long time partner who continues to take advantage of new technology initiatives by extending their unified interactive TV delivery platform with exceptional innovations,” said Fred Ellis, COO of SecureMedia. “We are excited to supply the non-stop protection required for these current and new interactive entertainment developments and we especially prize our relationship and joint deployments.”
The award-winning Encryptonite ONE™ System is today’s proven multi-format, multi-platform CA/DRM software solution that provides the highest levels of digital content security while offering operational efficiencies and extended value. Approved by all major film studios and TV broadcasters, the Encryptonite ONE System allows telcos, broadband and cable operators to acquire distribution rights to the most compelling broadcast channels and VOD programming. Its unique system design features an ultra-light, processor-efficient client that can be deployed on virtually any consumer media appliance to allow ubiquitous secure content distribution on current and future set-top boxes, PCs, portable players and mobile phones. Employing a patented, common encryption scheme for both broadcast and VOD content and through its exclusive EverLock™ process, the Encryptonite ONE System is the only solution available today that enables persistent and efficient protection of content at all times in distribution and storage including in DVR and nDVR applications. Newest innovations include exclusive platform extensions that allow for selectable digital forensics to track, identify and deter piracy of valued content (IdentiFind™), support for DVB Simulcrypt enabling DVB-T,-C,-S and -H services (SecureCast™), rapid middleware integration to speed time-to-market (CodeConnect™), and configurable security parameters for diverse quality content (TrustAdjust™).

- STBs like AmiNET110, old MPEG-2 and cheap MPEG-4 boxes with a hardware onboard to transcode only one ("main") transport stream.
- modern STBs based on latest chipsets (say, ST71XX), i.e. AmiNET130, ADB3800, Sagem, Zyxel, etc., you name it... They have hardware to transcode few transport streams. This is good news :-) The bad news is to deliver this service to subscribers, STB vendors should support PiP fubctionality on a system software level. But they didn't yet.

April, 24 2009 – Mirifice Ltd and Smartlabs LLC announce a partnership to bring the MiriMON advanced customer QoE monitoring solution to the SmartTUBE service delivery platform (SDP).
John Kinson, Managing Director for MiriMON at Mirifice, says "SmartLabs are a leading-edge SDP provider, offering sophisticated multicast, VOD and timeshifted services. We are delighted to be working with them to provide a market-leading QoE monitoring capability to their customers.”
MiriMON provides critical information for service assurance, customer care and service optimization by monitoring real consumer devices, in real-time. The integration of SmartTUBE and MiriMON is successfully deployed in a major IPTV network.
John added "It has been rewarding to see the benefit to the network operator from the unique real-time information generated by MiriMON and SmartTUBE. We are delighted to work with the SmartLabs team, who share our commitment to excellence and innovation."
Mikhail Grachev, CEO at SmartLabs LLC says "For our service delivery platform customers, MiriMON provides valuable detailed view of the TV service that each and every consumer receives. Combining this information with the SmartTUBE platform provides a true end-to-end view of service delivery for linear and on-demand programming."
SmartLabs’ key platform – SmartTUBE SDP – a converged service delivery platform for interactive television over fixed (IPTV, DVB, hybrid) and wireless (DVB-H, 3G, Wi-Fi, WiMax, etc.) networks with TV broadcasting, PPV, PVR/nPVR, VoD/nVoD, IM, and other services.
SmartTUBE UI client applications are based on a popular animation and graphical engine and supports a wide range of client devices (STBs, mobile phones, media centers, etc.) and is integrated into SmartLabs client application framework – a powerful development environment which has all typical TV user interface objects (windows, menus, lists, etc.), animation templates (motions, movements, object behaviors, etc.) as well as typical client-server interoperability mechanisms (i.e., EPG and VoD content data exchange, available services, etc.). Once created, the UI might be easily transferred to different end-point devices. It allows to move UIs to any new device within one technology (say, IPTV), and it also allows to build hybrid
solutions (IPTV, DVB, 3G, Wi-Fi, etc.) assuming that subscribers will use the same interface experience regardless ways they have to access services.
