NAGRA brings innovative pay-TV solutions to CABSAT 2017

Cheseaux, Switzerland – March 9, 2017 – NAGRA, a Kudelski Group (SIX:KUD.S) company, the world's leading independent provider of content protection and multiscreen television solutions, will demonstrate an array of solutions designed to simplify the all-screen viewing experience and connect people to the content they love at CABSAT 2017, March 21-23 at the Dubai World Trade Center. NAGRA will also present in two sessions of the CABSAT conference.

“With all the content and device choices available to a new generation of consumers, service providers can play a fundamental role in helping them get to the content they love easily and efficiently while ensuring protection for their valuable content assets,” said Thierry Legrand, SVP Sales & Services EMEA at NAGRA. “Our CABSAT showcase is centered around this very theme with solutions that help viewers consistently, reliably and elegantly access the content they want to watch across any device - while leveraging the industry’s most complete and robust security framework enabling service provider and content owners to protect, mark, monitor and act against pirates to defend their revenues against theft.”
Demonstrations on NAGRA Booth #206 will include:
• TVkey: a CES 2017 Innovation Award honoree, this cost-effective USB dongle plugs into newer model Samsung TV sets, enabling consumers to immediately watch their favorite pay-TV channels in 4K Ultra HD and HDR using operator-controlled security and user experience. For operators, TVkey helps lower the barriers to entry for pay-TV services while remaining fully in control of the user experience, and for device manufacturers it helps expand the range of services available on their new TV models.
• Unified all-screen viewing experiences that gracefully extends across a wide range of home viewing use cases powered by the OpenTV Suite, including a rich and intuitive experience on set-top boxes by SmarDTV as well as popular streaming devices like Roku and Amazon’s FireTV, or elegantly casting OTT content from a mobile device to the TV using the SmarDTV CASTdongle, a simple, cost-optimized HDMI device enabling direct-to-TV services with premium content and an operator-branded UI on modern TV sets.
• The NAGRA Security Services Platform, the next-generation media protection platform that helps operators leverage new opportunities and business models, manage piracy and cybersecurity risks and create more efficient operations. Combining NAGRA’s multi-device, multi-network service, device and app protection technologies, Hollywood-approved forensic marking techniques from sister company NexGuard and a comprehensive suite of anti-piracy services, the NAGRA Security Services Platform provides holistic content protection for today’s pay-TV providers.
