Frost & Sullivan Identifies Safeview as a Hot Vendor
By Raju Shanbhag, TMCnet Contributor
With an increasing number of service providers and subscribers opting for digital TV, conditional access system is fast replacing the conventional cable system in the television market. Conditional access system prevents piracy and gives exact statistics about the subscription trends of a channel.
According to Frost & Sullivan, Safeview has established itself as a global player with intelligent partnerships with others in the same domain. These partners work with MSOs and ensure that Safeview products register more sales. They also provide important aspects of customer likes and dislikes, which will help Safeview to react to market demands.
Safeview has also spread its wings in the cable segment. The company is targeting tier-II and tier-III cable operators in countries like India and Latin America. Most of these cable operators are small and medium sized, and their business needs products offered by Safeview.
Safeview develops third party products and offers solutions for digital TV value chain. Apart from the conditional access system, the company also provides back office applications. It also provides Customer relationship management (CRM) and pre or postpaid billing systems.
“Safeview is prudent in its focus on India in this narrow window of opportunity during the next two years of aggressive cable digitization," said Frost & Sullivan Industry manager, Avni Rambhia. "They are targeting the market in a customer-centric way with products and pricing targeted to meet local market demand and excellent customer support, which provides a compelling differentiator against other smaller vendors competing for the same business.”
Recently, the company announced that it will participate at the Andina Link 2012 Central America fair.
