other streaming provider giants who have
learned to master capturing data from the
networks and from the users; and with this
data, being able to provide a superior user
experience and make better decisions around
purchasing content, advertising, and network

All NAGRA products are now cloudready and can be delivered as a service.
NAGRA has invested in developing its own
data intelligence cloud platform, focused
on leveraging data analytics and artificial
intelligence to deliver actionable insight
and drive business performance for pay TV
operators.
Both user experience and content value
protection platforms use NAGRA Insight to
make the business of pay TV distribution
smarter and more efficient, providing
the tools for operators to compete more
effectively with OTT pure players.
BCA: What's next for NAGRA? What
advances can we look forward to from
the company?
SLeD: We're looking at more
deployments of our products with content
owners and services providers, with
a focus on supporting the transition
to IP, cloud and data-driven solutions
across all facets of the content
delivery business in a market where
traditional pay TV and OTT services
are converging.
On the content protection side, our

comprehensive end-to-end content value
protection, whether from our NAGRA or
Conax product lines, gives both content
owners and service providers the ability to
truly protect their valuable assets from origin
to consumption, while helping them create
the ultimate closed-loop approach to fighting
piracy by securing, marking, monitoring,
and acting against it from a unified security
platform. While continuing to invest in our
anti-piracy platform, with a focus on sports
piracy, we are planning to extend our content
value protection offering with solutions for
OTT delivery, including watermarking and
robust multi-DRM solutions for multiscreen
services.
OpenTV Signature Edition will also be a key
focus for NAGRA in 2018. It offers an option
to integrate an Android TV Operator Tier
solution, offering the best of broadcast and
IP services with NAGRA content protection,
allowing providers to easily access on-board
SVOD services to deliver a unique user
experience while leveraging their existing TV
infrastructure.
NAGRA is also bringing additional insight to
the industry with the 2018 edition of the PayTV Innovation Forum research programme.
In its third year, the global research
programme will once again gather senior
industry executive insight and feedback
over the coming months with the objective
of capturing innovation trends in the paid
content production and distribution industry.
