The News Corp owned NDS Group which provides technology solutions for digital pay TV has announced that it has licensed Expway’s Binary XML solution, BinXML.

The move is a part of its ongoing commitment to provide state of the art technology solutions to operators and broadcasters. NDS plans to integrate and deploy BinXML into its range of head-end systems and receiver middleware solutions.

The integration of BinXML into NDS headend and set-top box middleware will enable data to be compressed, offering broadcasters and operators the opportunity to deliver faster, richer and more bandwidth efficient applications. Data intensive applications, such as the Electronic Programme Guide (EPG), will, with the integration of BinXML, be able to support the delivery of enhanced information to the customer using less bandwidth, potentially reducing costs for broadcasters and operators.

The Paris headquartered Expway provides software solutions for managing XML transfer and processing dedicated to TV and mobile networks. It draws its expertise from its proven and world-class patented binary XML technology, BinXML, already adopted as the binary XML transport format by MPEG-7, TV-Anytime and Digital Video Broadcasting standards. Expway claims that its solutions are suitable for constrained environments and devices such as digital TV set-top-boxes and mobile phones.
