Consumers expect easy access to content – anywhere, anytime, and on any device. To support the complex technical requirements of delivering advanced television services, providers need a mature security system that is cost-effective, scalable, future-proof and feature-rich. Having a partnership with a content security vendor with proven expertise in the market is an investment that will not only protect their current assets, but also enable them to generate additional revenue streams in the future.
Security and content protection is a core competency and deeply rooted in all aspects of Conax. The very first revenue streams that it secured 25 years ago were “simple” analog broadcasts of pay-tv channels. Although broadcast still dominates in TV delivery at 90%, there is a growing demand for pay-TV operators to offer different multiscreen solutions, and this brings a whole new range of requirements.
In this interview, Hans Kwaaitaal, SVP APAC and strategic partnerships at Conax, outlines the company’s role in providing conditional access to – and protection of – content, from broadcast through to cable and IP-based pay-TV services.
Since 1988, Conax has set the benchmark for content and revenue security in the pay-tv industry. Its unique content security platform, Conax Contego, is a sophisticated, fully scalable solution with features and functions for small, medium, and large operations. Conax Contego delivers unrivalled security for any operation and any type of platform – satellite, cable, terrestrial-TV, IPTV and OTT – from traditional broadcasting to the most advanced viewing experience available.
