Transvision, Indonesia’s leading provider of pay TV services, has selected Irdeto to securely deliver direct-to-home (DTH) content through its Android TV platform.
Open platforms are playing a pivotal role in the future of TV distribution and Android TV is one such example that offers tremendous benefits to operators. Irdeto Armor for Android TV helps Transvision formulate and execute the right strategy to protect its ecosystem while ensuring the best customer experience.
According to a survey conducted by Irdeto in 2017, 72% of video service providers are considering Android implementations as part of their short to long term set-top box (STB) strategy. This is no exception for Transvision, which is also working with TVSTORM as the middleware provider and systems integrator for its latest STB.
Amidst a competitive media and entertainment landscape in Indonesia, Transvision’s Android TV offering gives it a competitive edge over other low-cost market players by delivering premium and innovative entertainment services. Customers can now enjoy the full range of Transvision’s DTH and over-the-top services, including premium 4K UHD content, as well as thousands of apps in the Google Play Store from the same STB.
“With our latest, highly-competitive hybrid STB on Android TV, Transvision strives to continuously innovate, providing the best home entertainment experience in Indonesia. And we are pleased to have Irdeto as our trusted security partner with its hugely successful track record in Cloaked CA,” said Hengkie Liwanto, CEO, Transvision. “The company’s strong relationship with Google and business-centric approach also increases our confidence to innovate, allowing us to focus on meeting our customers’ growing requirements.”
“In today’s open and competitive landscape, operators must be free to choose the platform that best meets their business needs. The right security partner will protect the operator’s overall ecosystem and business model no matter what they choose,” said Jay Ganesan, Regional Director and General Manager, SEA, Irdeto. “We are committed to helping Transvision achieve the fastest time-to-market and reap the benefits of Android TV. Our latest renewable and cardless software security will help Transvision gain a competitive edge in the market and enable new business.”
Open platforms like Android TV are game changers in the TV landscape because they allow operators to future-proof their STBs with the help of the open source community or the development resources of companies like Google. However, to be successful, operators must employ a holistic, 360-degree security approach to ensure that their content, data and devices are fully protected.
Transvision’s Hybrid STB implementation integrates the latest version of Android Oreo with Irdeto Armor for Android TV. By collaborating with Irdeto, Transvision is able to focus on providing a more compelling television experience for its customers, while having the assurance that its Android TV platform is protected by best-in-class security.
