NEW DELHI: Norway-based Conax A S, a leading supplier of conditional access technology for digital TV, IP streaming and security systems for interactive gaming and e-payment applications, plans to set up an operations centre in New Delhi.

Confirming its plans, Conax marketing manager Camilla H.H. Gulsett, said: "After the decision of the Indian parliament to make CAS mandatory, suppliers of conditional access have strengthened their focus on the growing Indian market. Setting up of operations centre in New Delhi will allow us to serve both the Indian and the Asian region with local technical support in an improved manner."

Gulsett added, "The operations centre will allow us to offer conditional access as a service in India. This implies that we undertake to establish and run the conditional access part of a DVB operation on revenue sharing basis, and more become a partner than a vendor."

Conax will operate the CA platform for Essel form our operation center in New Delhi," said Gulsett.
