Sky Italia has selected NAGRA to provide protection for its new DVB-T pay-TV service.
NAGRA will supply its broadcast and direct-to-TV content protection technology software.
The new terrestrial service is available on Sky Italia DVB-T set-top boxes and Conditional Access Modules (CAM) for digital TVs.
NAGRA’s broadcast content protection technology leverages the NAGRA Broadcast Headend security platform to enable a full portfolio of security features for premium broadcast TV. Integrated with NAGRA content protection and relying on the DVB CI and CI Plus standards, CAM modules enable pay-TV operators to deliver premium 4K Ultra HD content directly to integrated TV sets (iDTV) through broadcast or broadband IP network without a set-top box.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to work with Sky Italia and have them benefit from our retail expertise in pay-TV,” said Carlo Stramaglia, vice president sales, Italy, at NAGRA. “NAGRA technologies are best-of-breed when it comes to broadcast and direct-to-TV security for premium content addressing virtually any business requirement while providing robust content protection."
