Conax, a global provider of solutions for protecting multi-device digital content, recently signed an agreement with the Kerala Communicators Cable Limited (KCCL) to provide Kerala’s cable operators with digital migration and support for advanced service offerings for harnessing and securing new digital revenue.
Conax is the creator of the Contego platform, which provides the ultimate protection for the content and revenue, now and in the future.
The platform is a sophisticated, fully scalable solution that supports any business model for any TV operation and a multitude of consumer devices. Conax Contego scales horizontally, so the operator can easily increase capacity and performance simply by adding hardware as operations develops and grows.
The open architecture of Conax Contego offers easy integration with surrounding systems to enable any business model or distribution technology.
"We are highly pleased with the success of the digitization process and our choice of security partner, Conax,” confirmed Nassir Hassan Anwar, director of KCCL. “Conax has been a reliable partner for Indian pay-TV operators for a decade, with a strong understanding of the market and technology. That dedication continues with our partnership to enable the vast KCCL group in its move to digitization. The cooperation with Conax is providing the KCCL operators with a strong business model to grow with, including reduced churn, the benefits of a digital environment and the flexibility, good service and support for integrating rich, new advanced services.”
"Just months into the digital migration the Conax/KCCL cooperation, our first customer in South India, has become an India success story,” said Morten Solbakken, CEO at Conax. “The comprehensive project has proven to reduce the complexity of the staggering digitization process for the 2000 KCCL operators during a challenging digital process, and is including the launch of exciting new services such as HD and other futuristic product offerings. We are looking forward to our continued strong partnership with KCCL as they move in the future.”
