Working with a broad range of content, including ring tones, games, iconic logos and video, Navio and TDK Systems will offer developers a federated marketplace to sell any type of digital content on any device. How Navio technology works Navio manages buyer and seller rights as XML based metadata called Navio Titles. The company offers a comprehensive transaction and trading platform based on the exchange of these titles. Navio Titles may be used to represent an offer to purchase content, a purchase receipt to download content, a payment instrument to represent stored value or credit card information, or a user identity to enable single-sign-on or end-user authentication. Navio?s affiliate and loyalty services enable super-distribution of content where customers can extend purchase offers beyond themselves, and content providers can track affiliate sales chains. The Navio service is DRM agnostic, and works with any existing cryptographic scheme to protect digital content as it is streamed over Navio?s network or stored on a user?s computer.
