Nagra Showcases Latest Anti-Piracy Services and User Experience Solutions at NAB 2017

Cheseaux, Switzerland(10 Apr 2017)

Nagra, a Kudelski Group (SIX:KUD.S) company, the world's leading independent provider of content protection and multiscreen television solutions, will showcase anti-piracy services and all-screen user experience solutions at the 2017 NAB Show, from April 23-27, 2017 in Las Vegas. Highlights include:

Anti-Piracy Services & Watermarking
In a world of escalating piracy that is threatening the pay-TV business, film studios and sports rights holders, NAGRA will demonstrate the critical anti-piracy services that trace illegal content distribution and take decisive action to stop it. With the added ability of NexGuard watermarking technology, Nagra can stop content leaks at their source, whether the content is live or on-demand. Together with Nagra’s comprehensive CAS, DRM and multi-DRM technologies, these form the pillars of the Nagra Security Services Platform to provide a unified and holistic approach to pay-TV content protection. Nagra’s anti-piracy services will be co-located with NexGuard on Booth SU3424.
“Piracy takes many forms, from key sharing for broadcast services to content sharing of live events and premium VOD titles over the Internet,” said Christopher Schouten, Senior Director Product Marketing for Nagra’s content protection solutions. “To help content owners and pay-TV providers understand and fight these constantly evolving threats, Nagra provides the industry’s most complete content value protection solution portfolio, allowing them to secure and mark their content, monitor for illegal distribution, and act quickly against pirates to defend the legitimate value chain against revenue loss.”
Compelling User Experiences
Nagra’s OpenTV Suite enables pay-TV service providers to deliver unified, all-screen viewing experiences on a variety of devices, including operator set-top boxes by SmarDTV as well as popular consumer streaming devices like Roku and Amazon’s FireTV. It provides a powerful and cloud-ready backend platform for the delivery of multiscreen TV services with a personalized, operator-branded and consistent user experience across all major open device platforms.
“With the OpenTV Suite, service providers can deliver both operator STB-based or retail device-based OTT TV with the scalability, flexibility and fast time-to-market they require,” adds Anthony Smith-Chaigneau, Senior Director Product Marketing for NAGRA’s User Experience solutions. “Nagra’s OTT TV solution provides the added benefit of leveraging cloud DVR to enable cost-effective skinny packages with time-shifting features that increase viewer engagement while delivering the convenience and services subscribers have been asking for.”
The OpenTV Suite demonstration will be presented by appointment at the Renaissance Hotel, Suite #632.
