Conax launches new content security platform at IBC

AMSTERDAM: Conax has launched a new content protection platform, Conax Contego, at the television technology event IBC in Amsterdam.

Conax CEO Berit Svendsen said the new Conax Contego security platform will be the company’s primary vehicle for expansion in the global market. The company will develop future media opportunities based on its new secutiry technology.
The Conax Contego content security platform features a completely new design and architecture, yet includes the key functionality proven in previous Conax solutions. The new platform bundles 25 years of content protection experience into one unique solution:

· Higher security, flexibility and scalability than previously available on the market

· Best tool for securing content via multiple platforms and channels

· Dynamic architecture meets any redundancy requirements

· Highly intuitive, user-friendly management system

Svendsen says, ”Developed with 25 years of experience and a rock solid security record, Conax Contego is truly the market’s next generation solution for protecting content and enabling new services. The Conax Contego platform will bring DTV operators to the next level in empowering and securing their business, further strengthening Conax’ position in the global security market.” 
Conax Contego has undergone testing within the advanced customer operation, Digitenne, owned by Dutch telecom, KPN. The company adds that a pilot project confirmed its reliability in developing a high quality, multi-platform security solution for the next generation of content protection needs.
Conax executive VP products and markets Geir Bj?rndal says, ”Conax main goal is to combine the highest level of security on the market together with flexibility and usability. Conax Contego has removed the ominous black box factor, making it easy to deploy a high level content security through an extremely user-friendly management environment.”

Conax Contego is fully scalable and supports all business models required by the market. The main features include: Advanced anti-piracy mechanisms, smart card and card less security options, extensive language support, DVB, ISDB-T and OpenCable compliancy, DRM Control, secure hybrid STBs, CI Plus and CableCard support, multi-client support, multi-room and home networking, and 200+ supported STB vendors.

Conax Contego replaces the Conax Cas5 security platform launched at Digitenne in 2003. Digitenne’s Conax Cas5 platform yielded security, leading KPN to select Conax Contego for its platform upgrade. Digitenne is also benefitting from the additional user friendliness that the new platform provides.

Conax CTO Tore Gimse says, "Conax Contego is developed to meet future content distribution demands. A key design feature is one system - any operation functionality, supporting all relevant distribution technologies and a multitude of consumer devices. A single installation of Conax Contego supports both broadcast and broadband operations with content delivery to consumer devices, with or without smart cards. A monitoring system allows operators to secure potential issues before they become liabilities.”
