March 13, 2018

Conax, a Kudelski Group company and specialists in total service protection for pay-TV and digital entertainment services, has announced a collaboration with Nordic DTH operator Canal Digital to secure their new Android TV-based entertainment service, OnePlace.

OnePlace is now available to Canal Digital’s DTH customers across their Nordic footprint. The OnePlace set-top box will deliver more content and games via the Google Play Store, easy access to all content from one unified user interface, as well as advanced features like voice search and the ability to cast content from any mobile device to the big screen.

Henke Erichsen, CTO of Canal Digital, said: “We are proud and excited to provide OnePlace to our customers in the Nordics, and bring them a unique and personalized user experience that combines both linear and on-demand content. OnePlace is based on Android TV, and the open ecosystem will enable future innovation to the benefit of our customers. A number of suppliers, including Conax, have cooperated on developing the product. Conax’s contributions to the project have been vital in keeping content secure on the open ecosystem platform, and in ensuring that OnePlace complies with the strictest security requirements from content owners.”

Morten Solbakken, EVP and COO of the Kudelski Group, added: “We have been working with Canal Digital from very early on and are delighted to be a part of the OnePlace project. We have been able to utilise our unique expertise on securing Android TV ecosystems with several Conax technologies such as Conax Lynx to enable the new TV experience envisioned by Canal Digital. We look forward to continuing our collaboration on the new platform as new features are launched.”
