NAGRA highlights new growth opportunities for pay-TV at CommunicAsia

NAGRA, a Kudelski Group company and an independent provider of content protection and multiscreen television solutions, will be at CommunicAsia 2016, from May 31-June 3 in Singapore, highlighting new growth opportunities and IP-based strategies designed to help the region’s pay-TV operators deliver a Secure, Engaging and Everywhere experience to consumers.

NAGRA will be located on Booth 1H-214, along with Kudelski Group subsidiaries Conax and SmarDTV, at the Marine Bay Sands Convention.

“Pay-TV operators, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region, are at the crossroads of exciting new opportunities to reach consumers on any screen, anytime and anywhere, as well as engage into a more interactive viewer relationship,” said Stéphane Le Dréau, NAGRA’s General Manager for Southeast Asia. “Largely driven by the accelerated adoption of IP-based delivery networks, these opportunities also bring about new technical challenges – from content protection to the consumer experience – where NAGRA is uniquely positioned to help. We look forward to unveiling our latest innovations and demonstrating how service providers can embrace the new IP environment.”

NAGRA’s technology showcase will feature the award-winning intuiTV solution, a managed cloud-based platform that can be configured with a full line-up of premium content and advanced TV services featuring live TV, VOD, SVOD services (like Netflix and YouTube), PVR/nPVR, social TV and other standard TV features such as search and recommendation (including voice) – all accessible via an innovative streaming device, ‘swipe-to-tune’ user interface and a contextual, programmable e-ink remote control.

Visitors will also learn about NAGRA’s growing footprint in the Asia-Pacific region and see latest deployments of theMediaLive Suite, including OpenTV 5 connectware and NAGRA’s set-top box reference solution for Netflix which wasrecently deployed at StarHub in Singapore. Such innovations have enabled operators to deploy next generation services – from basic to more advanced – and expand their offering by enabling them, for instance, to seamlessly integrate SVOD services in their content line-up through a single user interface and TV input.

New developments in content protection will complement the showcase and feature anyCAST’s unique adaptive security concept which comprehensively addresses all devices and use cases for a new generation of enhanced content, featuring connected security, 4K content protection and watermarking.

NAGRA anyCAST gives pay-TV service providers the industry’s largest and most trusted range of conditional access (CAS) and digital rights management (DRM) solutions.

Using a single Security Services Platform, NAGRA anyCAST seamlessly controls an entire range of cardless, card-based, embedded and two-way connected secure clients as well as 3rd-party DRMs, enabling any service provider to create the perfect security solution for their network or combination of networks.
