SIDSA breaks into DTT market

November 16, 2007

Spanish technology company SIDSA is targeting the Digital Terrestrial TV (DTT) market to help broadcasters and operators develop cost-effective pay DTT services with a minimum investment.

Its KeyFly Conditional Access System (CAS) is protecting the Spanish Football League TV rights in the Middle East and North of Africa within the pay-TV platform, Al Jazeera Sport Channel, whose pre-pay model is proving to be a success for the third consecutive year.

In addition, in Spain, SIDSA has joined forces with the pay platform Boulevard Digital, SIEMENS-InOutTV, the Consultancy firm SDIdigital, the operator Telecom Castilla-La Mancha and the TV producer Mediapro to launch a pay DTT pilot. It is one of the first pay-TV initiatives on DTT in Spain and forms part of the project called “DTT Digital Alcázar”, the first successful case in the South of Europe of a “DTT Digital Island”.
