Multi-screen digital TV content security solutions specialist Conax has unveiled Conax Xtend Multiscreen, a new pre-integrated solution for enabling easy migration to advanced multiscreen services.
The solution is a high performance, cost-efficient ecosystem for multiscreen hybrid-broadband-broadcast content delivery and consumption. The solution has been developed together with middleware provider, Cubiware, and content management system provider, MPS Broadband.
“Many consumers now have ready access to high-speed broadband. Combined with a tide of powerful new connected devices, a new era of video consumption has been ignited. Pay-TV operators are keen to explore strategic partnerships and business models that enable energetic new offerings such as delivery of advanced multiscreen services that provide both ease of use and quality of experience,” noted Tom Jahr, EVP Products and Partners, Conax.
Tor Helge Kristiansen. Director, Product Management at Conax said the solution had been developed in response to what pay-TV operators wanted to offer. “OTT involves a complex ecosystem, so only a few operators are able to handle it,” he suggested.
