Canal+ Group has deployed multiscreen services on more than one million Android devices using NAGRA multiscreen solutions.

The NAGRA MediaLive Secure Player pre-integrated with NAGRA’s DRM, anyCAST PRM, allows Canal+ Group to deliver a variety of internet-enabled services in a secure environment to multiple Android-based devices through the MyCanal application. Services enabled include live, catch-up and ‘download-to-go’, a feature enabling on-the-go viewing of video content on mobile devices.

“The launch of our app has been very successful and demonstrates an ever­increasing demand for multiscreen services on behalf of consumers,” said Frédéric Vincent, EVP technology and information systems for Canal+ Group. “NAGRA solutions gave us the ability to seamlessly deploy our app on multiple Android devices and in multiple regions which was a key requirement for us.”

The NAGRA MediaLive Secure Player is a key component of NAGRA’s MediaLive multiscreen product line. It extends the TV experience beyond the set-top box to open consumer electronic devices (PCs, tablets, smartphones, iOS or Android) and enables service provider to safely distribute content across screens.

“We congratulate Canal+ Group on reaching an important milestone with their Android multiscreen application, supported by best-of-breed solutions,” said Jean-Michel Puiatti, SVP multiscreen product unit for NAGRA. “In a world that is increasingly connected and fragmented - and particularly in the Android market - our modular NAGRA MediaLive and anyCAST solutions give them the edge to be well-positioned in a very fast-changing and increasingly competitive industry.”
