NAGRA and HD PLUS GmbH have announced the renewal of their technology partnership, which has been extended to include content protection on Smart TVs.
NAGRA content protection supports the recently announced HD PLUS solution on Smart TVs not requiring an external device, such as a conditional access module (CAM) or set-top box (STB).
The solution also offers the new HD+ Komfort-Funktion (HD+ comfort function), enabling instant restart of selected programs and an interactive TV Guide with customisable search patterns, covering linear TV via satellite as well as non-linear content.
HD PLUS operations and product development MD Georges Agnes said: “We are pleased to continue our successful partnership with NAGRA over the long term and extend it with NAGRA content security directly integrated in Smart TVs.
“We successfully deployed this solution in Samsung and Panasonic Smart TVs which gives consumers instant access to the HD+ service and its HD+ Komfort-Funktion in a robust and secure environment.”
