NAGRA will showcase solutions for content value protection and OTT content optimization at the NAB Show April 9-12 in Las Vegas. NAGRA, at stand SU3424, will feature Conax content protection, OTT and Android TV-based solutions, NAGRA anti-piracy services, NexGuard watermarking, and in its U.S. debut, media asset management by DVnor.

“NAGRA is showcasing its broad product offering in delivering innovative solutions that protect the entire content value chain from origin to consumption, while helping our customers maximize their content investment,” said Tom Wirth, Senior Vice President, Americas for NAGRA. “With technologies spanning content protection, anti-piracy services and watermarking, we provide our customers with the services and solutions that are critical to enabling and securing the future of content delivery for the media and entertainment industry.”

Demonstration areas will include:

Turnkey, Multi-DRM OTT

Conax GO Live is a turnkey end-to-end OTT solution with a guaranteed deployment time of less than 30 days. Utilizing the multi-DRM capability of the cloud-enabled Conax Contego content security platform and best-of-breed partners, Conax GO Live delivers live TV channels with start-over, catch-up and full EPG to Android and iOS devices. The latest deployment of Conax GO Live with Montecable in Uruguay will be on display.

End-to-End and Secure Android TV-Based Viewing Experiences

Pay-TV operators leveraging Android TV need to ensure an extra level of security for premium content to conform to content owners’ security demands and protect their business model. Conax Lynx makes this possible by harnessing the openness and flexibility of the Android TV ecosystem. This effectively creates a Secure Media Path (SMP) thwarting “pirate-in-the-box” attacks and meeting MovieLabs’ requirements for Enhanced Content Protection (ECP) of 4K/UHD content. With the right security and operating within an end-to-end TV solution framework, an Android TV-based solution can enable pay-TV operators to deliver compelling TV experiences that engage consumers and drive monetization. The recently launched Canal Digital Android TV-based 4K experience OnePlace will be on display.

Anti-Piracy Services and Watermarking

Service providers and content owners alike will learn how to create the ultimate closed-loop approach to fighting piracy by leveraging NAGRA Anti-Piracy Services and watermarking for any OTT system and any workflow. Visitors to the NAGRA stand will learn how NexGuard watermarking for Pre-Release can secure premium content and prevent leaks in post-production and video distribution workflows, as well as how NexGuard watermarking for Early Release can protect premium VOD content against illicit distribution. Another demonstration will show how pay-TV operators can protect their content investment by finding and stopping illegal distribution of channels, live events and movies, and fight IPTV and Kodi add-on piracy.

Media Asset Management

In its U.S. debut, NAGRA introduces the DVnor Organizer, a one-stop-shop for all a pay-TV operator’s content management needs, and DVnor dSpree for VOD catalogue creation. Leveraging the “One Master” concept, Organizer is a fully automated end-to-end Media Asset Management platform that delivers both innovation and cost-savings to pay-TV operators struggling to cope with ever-expanding VOD/SVOD catalogues and numerous content sources and file formats. DVnor is a preferred partner to some of the world’s leading streaming services.

With DVnor dSpree, pay-TV operators can set up a VOD or SVOD service in a matter of minutes. Delivered from the DVnor’s secure cloud, dSpree gives pay-TV operators the freedom to customize their store and give customers instant access to content on PCs/Macs, Android and iOS devices, or TV screens, via Chromecast or AppleTV. It leverages NAGRA NexGuard watermarking and Conax multi-DRM to deliver premium content, including 4K and HDR, safely and securely.
