ARRIS and NDS introduce whole-home solution featuring Snowflake

ARRIS has partnered with NDS to develop a whole-home solution for cable TV operators, featuring the ARRIS Media Gateway and Media Player with NDS’ MediaHighway middleware, VideoGuard Connect DRM and the NDS Snowflake user interface.

The resulting solution is billed as a comprehensive architecture to accelerate the convergence of traditional pay-TV with Interactive IP Multi-Media Services, and marks the first time a third-party supplier has integrated its software with the ARRIS Media Gateway and Media Players.

Cisco confirmed last March that it plans to acquire UK-based NDS Group from News Corp and private equity fund Permira for approximately US$ 5bn – more details here.
