|Includes: AuthenTec, Inc. (AUTH)

AuthenTec recently announced that Orange Poland has launched a new mobile app that centers on delivering TV and movie content to mobile devices. The app announcement was accompanied with a promotion of the ability to watch live broadcasts of UEFA EURO 2012 matches provided by TVP, the official broadcaster of the event. These broadcasts will be available through a special portal developed by Orange and "Telewizja Tu I Tam" mobile app.

AuthenTec is focused on providing mobile and network security methods and systems through secure networking, content and data protection, access control, and strong fingerprint security on computing and smart devices. The company has shipped over 100 million fingerprint sensors, and has a client list that includes Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco, Fujitsu, HBO, HP, Lenovo, LG, Motorola, Nokia, Orange, Samsung, Sky, and Texas Instruments.

Orange Poland's new app-based mobile service, named TV Here and There, will allow mobile device users the ability to watch streaming television or movies across multiple devices, such as their PC, TV, smartphones, and tablets. Media can also be viewed on multiple devices simultaneously. The first three months of the service will give users free access to twenty TV channels and thirty movies per month, with ten new titles added each month.

"Thanks to the DRM expertise of mobile and network security leader AuthenTec, our new 'TV Here and There' service is as easy for our subscribers as downloading an app," said Dominique Lesage, Director of Content, Orange Polska. "AuthenTec offered a strong content protection solution that's compatible with Android and iOS platforms yet supports smooth playback of movies, video on demand and live TV channels. We are excited about the launch of TV Here and There across Poland and are grateful for the technical support of the AuthenTec team which helped make it possible."

"Our downloadable DRM solution continues to be the content protection of choice among the largest carriers and content owners throughout Europe and around the globe," said Dr. Simon Blake-Wilson, Vice President of AuthenTec Embedded Security Solutions. "Because of the standards compatibility and ease of deployment offered by our DRM Fusion solutions, we are able to help Orange Poland and others quickly and cost-effectively bring new content services online. We are proud of the important role AuthenTec plays in a growing number of content service deployments such as TV Here and There."
