NAGRA to demo digital strategies for pay TV providers at ConnecTechAsia

Technologies on display to include content value protection with anti-piracy services and watermarking, active content monetization, Android TV, data analytics, smart home security and IoT.

At ConnecTechAsia 2019, NAGRA, a Kudelski Group company and a major provider of content protection and multiscreen television solutions, will demonstrate its latest portfolio of technologies and solutions designed to help pay-TV operators and content owners in the APAC region grow in an IP-based environment. The event will take place in Singapore, at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Center, booth 1J2-01, from June 18-20, 2019.

“As pay-TV and OTT become synonymous, operators in the APAC region must drive business transformation forward and adapt to current markets needs by addressing three key areas: technology, content and commercialisation,” said Stéphane Le Dreau, SVP Sales APAC at NAGRA. “From shifting consumer behaviour to the rapidly evolving threat of piracy, pay-TV operators across Asia have been forced into a radical top-down rethink of their business models. And with the rise of streaming platforms, pay-TV and OTT providers have an opportunity to reach new customers outside of the managed network or who don’t own the provider’s set-top box. At ConnecTechAsia, we will showcase an array of cloud native solutions to enable the right strategy for success.”

Key demonstrations and themes will centre around content value protection, active content monetisation, Android TV, Smart business operations with data analytics and AI, smart security and IoT security.

Within content value protection, NAGRA offers cloud-based security with cloud.SSP, a unified and flexible platform for managing an operator’s content security requirements across all screens. NAGRA cloud.SSP supports TVkey Cloud, a new cloud-based direct-to-TV security solution for Smart TVs, also on display. NAGRA will also highlight anti-piracy services and forensic watermarking, showing how service providers can proactively fight and disrupt the growing scale and sophistication of ever-evolving piracy threats.

As part of active content monetization, NAGRA offers OpenTV Suite. For operators seeking a ready-to deploy end-to-end OTT solution, the company has Conax GO Live, which provides live TV streaming to Android and iOS devices, with start-over and catch up TV capabilities, in less than 30 days. Running on AWS, Conax GO Live operates on the Conax Contego unified content security platform supporting major native DRMs. Recent deployments of Conax GO Live will be on display.

Leveraging a long-standing experience in Android-based OTT and hybrid TV, the NAGRA Android Fast Track programme combines a highly secure and fully featured ecosystem of technologies, partners and services to plan hybrid and OTT deployments and help operators execute on the Android TV journey.

NAGRA also offers Nagra Insight, an AI-driven pay-TV data analytics platform, which enables service providers to make better business decisions to improve their bottom line, take control of the data they own and create personalised actions that drive monetization, along with subscriber value, content, quality of experience, as well as targeted advertising.

Also demonstrated at the show will be NAGRA HomeScout, a cloud-based solution that monitors devices and IP traffic over the home network to ensure ongoing privacy, safety and smart parental controls, and Nagra’s IoT Security Platform, which enables telcos to add end-to-end security to their sales portfolio creating new business models while improving operational efficiency.

Nagra will also have a strong presence at the event’s conference with Stéphane Le Dreau as a featured panelist at the ConnecTechAsia 2019 Summit Combined Plenary session “The Media and Telco Arena: Consolidation, Competition or Collaboration” on Tuesday, June 18th at 11:35am. He will explore key topics affecting the media and telco space in the streaming ecosystem along with fellow panelists.
