  • Showcase will include comprehensive hands-on multiscreen demonstrations of real-world customer deployments and use cases
  • Kudelski Security and SmarDTV will display their latest anti-piracy and set-top box solutions

Cheseaux, Switzerland – December 15, 2015 – NAGRA, a Kudelski Group (SIX:KUD.S) company, the world's leading independent provider of content protection and multiscreen television solutions, will showcase its latest innovations designed to deliver a Secure, Engaging and Everywhere experience for pay-TV operators at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Venetian Meeting Rooms, San Polo 3501A, from January 6-9, 2016.

“With global OTT subscriptions forecast to nearly double* over the next three years, it is critical for service providers to deliver compelling multiscreen and streaming services as part of their overall pay-TV offering,” said Ivan Verbesselt, SVP Group Marketing. “As OTT services continue to evolve to meet increasing user expectations, pay-TV solutions must also provide a more engaging, intuitive and seamless entertainment experience. What we unveil at CES this year will show how pay-TV operators can take their own streaming services to the next level.”

As the featured highlight, NAGRA will leverage its broad and long-standing industry expertise and array of digital TV technologies to launch a significant innovation in streaming video and OTT. The solution will provide pay-TV operators with a new offering that will give consumers the TV experience they demand and deserve.

The latest implementations of OpenTV 5 HTML5 set-top box connectware and its elegant integration with key partners such as Netflix will also be on display. OpenTV 5 offers a robust solution to help accelerate the launch of secure multiscreen connected-home services.

Visitors will also learn more about the increasing momentum behind NAGRA’s MediaLive multiscreen solution and its latest cloud-based features-including cloud PVR, download-to-go, electronic-sell-through and dynamic ad insertion-that help increase ARPU and provide value-driven customer retention.

Lastly, NAGRA will demonstrate its latest 4K-enabled content security offerings and show how service providers can leverage NAGRA anyCAST to securely deliver premium broadcast pay-TV directly to a new generation of televisions delivered with NAGRA content security built in. This “direct-to-TV” approach helps simplify new customer registration and provides immediate access to TV services, thereby enabling service providers to reach new market segments as well as decreasing subscriber acquisition costs.

Kudelski Security and SmarDTV will complement NAGRA’s showcase. As the cybersecurity unit of the Kudelski Group, Kudelski Security will present anti-piracy and cybersecurity solutions for the media industry, as well as demonstrations of their worldwide piracy monitoring activities for recently released series and live sports content. SmarDTV will unveil its latest range of set-top box models for pay-TV operators.
