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.”
