Editor | 10-03-2014

Aiming to boost operators’ offerings for multiscreen content delivery and monetisation, PayWizard has entered into a partnership with Conax.

Together, the companies say that they will enable pay-TV operators and content owners to deliver multiscreen content securely, manage subscribers and offer payment services across a range of devices, platforms, territories and colourful new services. Integrating PayWizard’s award-winning subscriber management platform with Conax’s multiscreen security solution, claim the partners, will enable operators to easily register and manage subscriber accounts and process payment seamlessly, across all devices.

PayWizard and Conax add that they will offer pay-TV operators and broadcasters additional flexibility, more services, more payment options and new methods to enhance the consumer experience and boost viewer satisfaction. This, they say, will create strong business values for operators.

“Conax has developed an ecosystem for secure multiscreen content delivery including new services and potential revenue streams such as live TV on multiscreen, PRV quota, catch-up services and more. Integrating PayWizard’s award-winning platform provides yet another important building block in the value chain,” commented Conax VP product manager, Tor Helge Kristiansen. “Combining our powerful Conax Contego Unite multiscreen solution with feature-rich, value-added extras such as seamless subscriber management and billing from PayWizard provides strong business values for operators preparing for the multiscreen future”.

Added PayWizard partner manager, Ryan Welmans: “By partnering with leading technology providers like Conax, PayWizard’s rich interoperability can reduce lead times and deployment costs for those involved. This partnership in particular shows how we are responding to the needs of today’s pay-TV operators and broadcasters, and providing the additional power and flexibility to enhance the TV experience whilst driving business performance”.
