Conax has introduced ‘Contego as a Service’, a cloud-based content protection service that provides the benefits of the Conax Contego security platform, hosted, monitored and maintained by Conax. The company, part of the Kudelski Group, says the new content security backend provides operators with low upfront CapEx investment, short time-to-market and easy activation of additional features as their platform grows.
“Outsourcing the content security to Conax will allow operators to focus on their core business – providing competitive, future-oriented consumer services,” declares Tom Jahr, EVP Products & Marketing at Conax. “Our modular and flexible content protection in the cloud will provide scalability, easy integration of new advanced features and services, fast deployment and low investment in on-site hardware.”
During NAB Show Conax has also been showcasing end-to-end secure 4K watermarking, combining watermarking technology and forensic detection services from Kudelski Security, all secured through Conax Contego. This solution enables operators to meet the MovieLabs Enhanced Content Protection requirements and so give them access to high value 4K and Ultra HD content from Hollywood studios.
