Nagra announced the first cloud deployment of its Conax GO Live solution in Mexico, with the operator Ultravision, which will deploy a multi-screen pay TV service.
Ultravision’s new multiscreen service UltraTV, which is expected to launch this month, will enable its subscribers to watch linear pay TV channels in Puebla, Mexico using their iOS or Android mobile devices. It will also offer advanced features like start-over, catch-up and trick-play with full Electronic Program Guide (EPG) functionality on linear TV channels enabling a 24/7 service, Nagra explained in a press release.
Nagra enables Ultravision’s service with pre-integrated, best-of-breed partner technology to create an end-to-end IPTV multiscreen solution that was ready to deploy in less than 30 days. It includes a content management system and white-label apps for iOS and Android mobile devices. End-users can also cast their content to a TV screen using Google Cast or Apple AirPlay. Running on AWS, the Conax GO Live solution operates on the Conax Contego unified content security platform supporting major native DRMs.
“Cost-efficiency was also a key consideration in a low ARPU market like Mexico, and after evaluating different options, we decided to move forward with the Conax GO Live solution delivered as a service operating on Amazon Web Services (AWS), integrated with Conax Contego, our content security platform. It is the perfect extension enabling us to launch linear TV channels quickly and effortlessly on mobile consumer devices,” commented Patricio Zorrilla, CEO, Ultravision.
