Conax all-inclusive DRM portfolio for LatAm
August 5, 2013
Conax, a global provider of solutions for securing multi-device and digital video content distribution, has announced an all-inclusive strategy for the Latin America pay-TV market.
In addition to the recent announcements of secure DRM deployments at Cablemas, Nuevo Siglo and Montecable, content protection specialist Conax is partnering with systems integrator Bold MSS for a hosted IPTV solution, based on Conax Contego Unite and including middleware from Cubiware. Now operators of all sizes can readily embrace new pay-TV solutions, launching advanced platforms with low capital expenditure while positioning for market-differentiating offers such as OTT VoD and multiscreen services.
Bold MSS will provide a hosted IPTV solution designed for smaller Latin America operators keen to embrace VoD and other interactive services enabling enhanced consumer offerings. In addition to the expertise provided by the highly skilled technicians at Bold MSS, the new service will include world-class security from Conax and middleware from Cubiware.
“We are very excited by the tremendous demand for advanced services in Latin America and the opportunity to help operators grow. When selecting a security solution, operators should choose a partner with a solid security history and a long record of profitability to assure themselves a strong future. To help operators yield profits on their OTT investments, Conax is cultivating strategic partnerships to enable highly diverse pay-TV market segments to earn on advanced On Demand offerings – through flexible, fast-to-market and secure DRM solutions,” says Rohit Mehra, VP Americas, Conax.
