MUMBAI: Conax, part of the Kudelski Group, and a leader in total service protection for pay-TV and digital entertainment services worldwide via broadcast, broadband and connected devices, has announced that Indian pay-TV operator Triple Play has selected technology from Conax and Corpus to help drive expansion in the triple-play arena.

The new solution includes a Conax-secured multi-DRM offering based on the Conax CaaS cloud-based platform, combined with pre-integrated middleware from partner Corpus, with system integration by Corpus. The operator will initially target its current cable and internet subscriber base including a mix of high and low ARPU consumers. The contract represents the first deployment of the joint Conax/Corpus offering and the first launch of Conax’ cloud-based multi-DRM platform in the Indian market.

Triple Play is one of the largest triple play service provider working over FTTH (Fiber to the Home) in India through GPON (Gigabit passive optical network) Technology that enables the optical fiber to perform as a neutral-cum-independent network to carry multiple service providers to enhance & ensure higher level of subscriber satisfaction.

The flexible architecture behind the Conax CaaS cloud-based platform and benchmark multi-DRM solution reduces CAPEX and leverages the Conax “pay-as-your-business-grows” principle creating a natural migration path, reduced time-to-market, simplified operations and scalability for adding new services. The value-added, pre-integrated partner ecosystem offers Triple Play a competitive edge in attracting new market share by leveraging Corpus’ comprehensive middleware solution providing smooth integration, and an enhanced user experience.

Triple Play CEO Navneet Sethi “We chose Conax and Corpus to partner on our expansion into the triple-play arena based on a strong history of trust and competency for securing content in the Indian market and complex distribution environments, along with local presence and experience as well as a strong track record deploying advanced middleware and VOD solutions on both HD and SD STB’s even in the most challenging ecosystems.”

Conax president & CEO Morten Solbakken “With a consumer market eager to adapt the latest choices for accessing desired content, we are pleased to be selected to support Triple Play as it moves to an enhanced service offering within the multi-DRM space. In addition, the joint cooperation cements our growing relationship with the skilled team at middleware partner, Corpus, in establishing the Conax multi-DRM footprint in India as well as the first deployment of the Conax CaaS cloud-based platform.”

Corpus CEO Sachin Tummala “Corpus is pleased to partner with Conax in deploying its first cloud-based multi-DRM platform in the Indian market. We believe this will strengthen service providers’ ability to add more and more popular content and value added services. This will also enable us to continue to invest and enhance our technologies to adapt changes in the OTT space, while providing the best viewing experience to the end-consumer.”

Conax provides the ultimate flexibility in securing content across technologies and multiscreen devices – all based on a single unified security hub. With support for Common Encryption and MPEG DASH, Conax’ unique back-end simplifies content protection of TV everywhere services with market-leading DRM technologies (including Widevine, PlayReady, FairPlay Streaming and NAGRA PRM) without compromising usability for end users. In addition, Conax removes the operator burden in negotiating separate contracts for various DRM technologies, offering a one-stop-shop solution to starting multi-DRM operations.
