Solutions that enable true digitalization

and designed to facilitate the transition from broadcast to IP environments. NAGRA’s OpenTV Suite enables service transition to all-IP and is built to address the need for head-end and backend unification and simplicity, allowing service providers to focus on operational efficiency, business profitability and customer satisfaction, while have the choice to deploy the platform on virtualized infrastructure on-premise or in the cloud.

A variety of Direct-to-TV solutions

for pay-TV providers (TVkey, NAGRA CONNECT for TV, SmarDTV Wi-Fi CAM and vdoCAST dongle) that make signing up for pay-TV services as easy as signing up for OTT while at the same time lowering subscriber acquisition costs and reaching a wider audience for pay-TV content and services by leveraging retail and online TV sales as a pay-TV sales channel.

Defeating piracy through active security

Content Protection and Anti-Piracy Services for the end-to-end digital ecosystem through a holistic approach that also includes watermarking by NexGuard for true Content Value Protection. Featured solutions include NAGRA CONNECT, the hybrid CAS/DRM client for connected networks and devices and the NAGRA Security Services Platform, the cloud-based, modular, scalable CAS and multi-DRM command center for the modern multi-network operator.

Anti-Piracy Services are needed to fight new forms of content piracy and what is becoming the biggest threat to the pay-TV industry, particularly IPTV and Kodi box-related piracy. Combined with NAGRA’s software and hardware based security, they help both service providers and content owners create the ultimate closed-loop approach to piracy to secure, mark, monitor, detect, identify and act.

Data-driven and actionable intelligence with NAGRA Insight

to drive business-focused decision-making and improve operations. NAGRA Insight is a one-stop shop platform for pay-TV analytics that maximises business impact by empowering the internal teams and tapping into a large number of data sources in order to create innovative ways to improve the business of content distribution.

IoT Security Center of Excellence

leveraging the Kudelski Group’s unique 20+ years' device and network security expertise to support the secure deployment of connected objects, applications, networks and systems.

The VR path to monetisation

In offering a realistic path to be able to cross the chasm of VR monetisation (360 degrees-Virtual Presence-Virtual Experience), NAGRA is helping to prepare the ground for immersive and interactive storytelling in the VR world. NAGRA’s investment in ETCenter@USC and the Wonder Buffalo project demonstrate the new genre of hyper-immersive virtual cinema as a realistic step in the accompaniment of both the storytellers and their audience. These forms of collaborative projects allow us to better understand the impact of emerging technologies on the media & entertainment industry, exploring how this relates to a pay-TV environment. The Wonder Buffalo VR experience - where short film and VR come together - will be demonstrated on our booth (by appointment only).

The work of the 2017 edition of the Pay-TV Innovation Forum forms the backdrop to NAGRA’s IBC showcase providing exclusive insight into the innovation characteristics of the industry, winning strategies of industry leaders and emerging opportunities and challenges in pay-TV.

The final report of the 2017 program, "The Global Pay-TV Innovation Landscape: Industry Perspectives on a Year of Change"  is now available
