Irdeto Mobile and Compal Communications, Inc. (CCI) today announced that CCI has selected the Irdeto Mobile Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) digital rights management (DRM) software for inclusion in its full range of Windows Mobile OS mobile handsets.

Irdeto's OMA DRM client provides the robust security and compelling features required by content owners to enable the distribution of premium content to mobile devices. It is designed to support all major smartphone and feature phone operating systems, employs the highest levels of content protection and enables seamless integration with multimedia applications.

"Irdeto strives to offer our customers advanced DRM solutions that meet industry standards and enable rich multimedia services for mobile devices," said Graham Kill, CEO of Irdeto. "We've achieved great momentum in the Taiwanese market with the success of CCI and we look forward to working closely with them to enable the future of content distribution on mobile devices."

Irdeto is an active member of the Open Mobile Alliance, a consortium of over 300 companies that has taken the lead in defining the OMA Download and OMA DRM standards for the mobile device industry. The OMA is dedicated to promoting the worldwide adoption of mobile data services by emphasizing interoperability across devices and networks.

In addition to its OMA DRM solutions, Irdeto also offers a full range of conditional access (CA) solutions for Mobile TV, and has the distinction of having deployed the world's first mobile CA system for TU Media Corp.'s Satellite Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (S-DMB) service in South Korea. The Irdeto Mobile Broadcast CA solution also supports the terrestrial version of the standard, T-DMB, as well as the DVB-H standard, and has both hardware and SIM-based client solutions

Basically this means, you might be able to download DRM protected stuff from your operator and I'm not talking about ringtones (who is buying a ringtone for a Windows Mobile device if you can just use any MP3 file) but more content like OMA DRM protected audio files, as available for a wide range of devices already like from O2 Germany's O2 Music shop.

Cheers ~ Arne
