IBC Expo, Amsterdam, September 9th, 2015: Conax, part of the Kudelski Group (SIX:KUD:S), and a leader in total service protection for digital TV and entertainment services via broadcast, broadband and connected devices, today announced the launch of Conax Connected Access – next generation security client for IPTV supported by highly flexible Conax Contego™ security hub. Conax Connected Access is based on a single CAS/DRM client technology to securely and cost-effectively deliver any content, over any network and to any device; a unique, hybrid content protection client for connected devices including set-top boxes providing ultimate flexibility for all types of services such as Live TV, on-demand, PVR, Electronic Sell Through (EST) and Download-to-Go (DTG).
Part of the new Conax “Access” brand family of security clients, Conax Connected Access is leveraging the strength of a unique cooperation between Kudelski Group sister company NAGRA and Conax engineers for this unique IPTV security core. Conax has tailored Connected Access to also accommodate existing Conax IPTV regimes. The new Conax security client for IPTV will be available from Q1 2016. Further details will be available at IBC Expo at the Conax booth (#1.C81 in Hall 1).
An industry media briefing highlighting details of Conax Connected Access will be held Sept. 11th at 1 pm at the Conax booth at IBC Expo.
The Conax unified security client both reduces maintenance and increases security by seamlessly governing client security across broadcast, IPTV and OTT services, through a comprehensive end-to-end content protection environment that elegantly plugs into the Conax Contego™ unified security hub.
Through its modular security concept, Conax Connected Access safeguards premium content over a wide variety of devices by flexibly employing the device security infrastructure, ranging from the Kudelski Group’s unique and widely proliferated hardware root of trust, over Trusted Execution Environments (TEE’s) and up to software-only secure player implementations to ensure that operators can reach any device with the highest level of security achievable.
Conax Connected Access™ is ideal for new operators moving into pay TV operation based on IP connectivity, as well as existing broadcast operators going IP through technologies like Docsis 3.x, xPON, FTTx, 3G/4G or FTE. Based on the Conax Contego™ unified security hub, the operator is exceptionally equipped to support all modes of operation, with possibilities such as using a common CPE/STB to handle both new and existing distribution platforms.
-“This unique IPTV client is excellent proof of synergies coming to fruition with Conax engineers successfully leveraging Kudelski group core technology. We are inspired by working with the Group entities and the tremendous pool of shared expertise,” says Tom Jahr, EVP Products at Conax. The advanced hybrid approach provided by the joint strength of the Kudelski Group companies and Conax Connected Access supersedes legacy solutions available on the market today.”
-“The concept of a complete content security environment has been reconceptualised to create a single unified framework for safeguarding Broadcast, OTT, IPTV and connected home content. Built with state of the art software security, the flexible architecture will elegantly leverage stronger hardware security where available. The Conax Connected Access client is another stellar example of the ongoing cross-technology synergies including Conax and Kudelski Group companies,” continues Jahr.
