Telefonica has chosen NAGRA to secure its content across a number of countries.
The NAGRA Security Services Platform (SSP) will secure Telefonica’s Movistar IPTV service and 4K Ultra HD content in multiple countries with newest STBs. The announcement marks the first deployment of the NAGRA SSP and NAGRA Connect with a telco provider in an IPTV environment.
The new security platform provides Telefonica with a single, 4K-ready content protection system able to secure multiple device types, from existing set-top boxes to next generation STBs, as well as multiple use cases as required by the operator regarding live TV.
“We are proud that Telefonica has selected NAGRA as their security partner for their worldwide IPTV deployments,” said Maurice Van Riek, SVP content and asset security for NAGRA. “The NAGRA Security Services Platform provides a single suite of solutions to address every content protection need and provides a scalable and modular system for managing multiple environments across existing and newer generation set-top boxes. Together with the Connect client, Telefonica has a robust and comprehensive 4K and IP-ready content protection solution that can seamlessly deploy across device generations, regions and markets.”
