A feature presentation by industry expert Hans Kwaaitaal will address today’s top security threats to pay-TV operations, the primary function of content security, the role of set-top-boxes and how to minimize vulnerability to attacks.

According to a new report from Digital TV Research, The Third edition of the Digital TV Middle East and North Africa report, “fewer than 15% of TV households (analog and digital) legitimately paid for TV signals by end-2012. Report author Simon Murray said: “Legitimate pay TV revenues [for the 16 countries covered in the report] will grow by more than 42% between 2012 and 2018 to $4.76 billion.”  See Broadband TV News article by Robert Briel.

“Security is a moving target, says Saad Mouneimne, Director Area Sales ME&A, Conax. Operators need a highly flexible content protection solution that enables secure content delivery in this type of environment.

With over 25 years of experience, Conax is guiding operators in making the best choices for protecting their content revenues while also positioning for future business with secure roll-out of digital services and new exciting solutions such as multiscreen and Over-the-Top opportunities.”
