Conax packages hosted multiscreen for LatAm ops
Conax has devised a hosted IP solution, specifically for the Latin America pay-TV market, that is based on its own Contego Unite system and includes middleware from partner Cubiware. The solution would be installed by system integrator Bold MSS.
Customers will be able to use the system to offer services that include over-the-top video on demand (OTT VOD) and multiscreen delivery. Though the solution is aimed at smaller pay TV companies, it is appropriate for operators of all sizes, Conax said.
“To help operators yield profits on their OTT investments, Conax is cultivating strategic partnerships to enable highly diverse pay-TV market segments to earn on advanced On-demand offerings - through flexible, fast-to-market and secure DRM solutions,” says Rohit Mehra, VP Americas, Conax.
Conax noted that several of its products have been adopted recently in several Latin American markets. The Conax Xtend Multiscreen pre-integrated solution, based on Conax Contego Unite secure DRM, was recently chosen by Cablemås in Mexico.
Conax Contego Unite, the company’s OTT solution, has been selected by Nuevo Siglo and Montecable.
