  • Direct-to-TV solution and CES Innovation Award Honoree, TVkey makes North American debut
  • Comprehensive security showcase highlights how NAGRA’s Security Services Platform harnesses the latest innovations in forensic marking and anti-piracy

Cheseaux, Switzerland – January 3, 2017 – NAGRA, a Kudelski Group (SIX:KUD.S) company, the world's leading independent provider of content protection and multiscreen television solutions, will demonstrate how to connect people to the content they love by simplifying the all-screen viewing experience at CES® 2017 in Las Vegas, January 5-8, Venetian Meeting Rooms, San Polo 3501A.

“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 bringing millennials and cord cutters back into the fold,” said Ivan Verbesselt, SVP Group Marketing for NAGRA. “Our 2017 CES showcase is centered around this very theme with a variety of solutions designed to simplify the TV experience so that viewers can consistently, reliably and elegantly access the content they want to watch across any device.”
 
TVkey Makes North American Debut
A 2017 CES Innovation Award honoree, TVkey enables operators to lower the barriers to entry for pay-TV services while remaining fully in control of the user experience, and device manufacturers to expand the range of services available on their new TV models. In its North American debut, the TVkey direct-to-TV solution is a cost-effective USB dongle that plugs into newer model Samsung TV sets, enabling consumers to immediately watch their favorite pay-TV channels in 4K Ultra HD and HDR quality using operator-controlled security and user experience.

Simplifying the All-Screen Viewing Experience
NAGRA will also demonstrate how the OpenTV Suite helps service providers excel through a unified all-screen viewing experience that gracefully extends across a wide range of home viewing use cases:
• A rich and intuitive experience on set-top boxes by SmarDTV as well as popular streaming devices like Roku and Amazon’s FireTV 
• Direct-to-TV services with premium content and an operator-branded UI through TVkey on modern TV sets
• Elegantly casting OTT content from a second screen onto the big screen with the SmarDTV CASTdongle, a simple, cost-optimized HDMI device 
• Enjoying pay-TV around the home using the SmarDTV PicoCASTER to securely stream broadcast channels to other devices and apps using a Wi-Fi network

NAGRA’s New Security Services Platform
NAGRA will also feature its new 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 and a comprehensive suite of anti-piracy services, the NAGRA Security Services Platform provides the industry’s most complete and robust security framework for service providers and content owners to protect, mark, monitor and act against pirates to defend their revenues against theft.

The Ultimate Resource for IoT Security
Kudelski Security staff will engage with IoT solution providers to discuss how the company can help secure their IoT devices and networks from attack and data theft.

Real-Time Analytics Platforms
NAGRA Insight, a one-stop shop platform for real-time analytics, will be presented at the show. Leveraging data collected from the Group’s products and external sources, it drives actionable results and creates business impact by addressing key service provider challenges, such as customer value development (customer acquisition, retention and upsell) or content catalog optimization.

Digital Hollywood at CES
Ivan Verbesselt, SVP Group Marketing for NAGRA, will participate in the Digital Hollywood Conference at CES 2017 session titled “The Next Generation of OTT,” on Friday, January 6 at 2:15 p.m., LVCC, North Hall, Room N262.
