LAS VEGAS (CES) – January 3, 2007 (The Venetian Hotel, Lido Suite # 3003) – NDS, the leading provider of technology solutions for digital pay-TV, and VBox Communications, a leading provider of digital broadcast solutions, will showcase Cat’s Eye Premium at CES, an innovative solution that enables the secure viewing and storage of premium digital HDTV broadcast content on PCs.

VBox’s Cat’s Eye Premium, the first of a new family of VBox products for the pay-TV market, is an HDTV receiver optimized for reception of video, audio, and IP data. The VBox PC-TV receivers provide digital set-top-box functionality in a PC environment by simply connecting to a PC via a USB or PCI slot. They receive TV broadcast in the same manner as a digital set-top box, requiring no changes in either broadcast infrastructure or in the consumers’ premises. The content is protected by the NDS VideoGuard PC conditional access and DRM technology.

VideoGuard PC enables broadcasters to expand their offerings to the PC, reaching new audiences that prefer the PC as a media consumption device. The solution includes PC-TV software applications, and provides full DVR capabilities at an affordable price.

The DRM portion of VideoGuard PC enables the TV operator to offer more value to consumers by allowing them to take their content on the go without compromising the rights of the content owners.

“Supporting reception of premium content on the PC is a natural extension of NDS’s offerings for TV broadcasters,” said Joseph Deutsch, vice president of product marketing for NDS. “This collaboration enables broadcasters to utilize the PC as an additional consumption device for retaining viewers and expanding their revenue base.”
