Canal+ Group has deployed multiscreen services on more than one million Android devices using Nagra multiscreen solutions.
The Nagra MediaLive Secure Player, pre-integrated with Nagra’s DRM anyCAST PRM, allows Canal+ Group to deliver a variety of internet-enabled service through the “MyCanal” application.
They include live, catch-up and “download-to-go”, a feature enabling on-the-go viewing of video content on mobile devices.
Commenting on the development, Frédéric Vincent, EVP technology and information systems for Canal+ Group, said: “The launch of our app has been very successful and demonstrates an ever–increasing demand for multiscreen services on behalf of consumers.
“Nagra solutions gave us the ability to seamlessly deploy our app on multiple Android devices and in multiple regions which was a key requirement for us. We’re very pleased with the results and with what we’ve been able to accomplish using Nagra’ s solutions.”
Jean-Michel Puiatti, SVP multiscreen product unit for Nagra, added: “We congratulate Canal+ Group on reaching an important milestone with their Android multiscreen application, supported by best-of-breed solutions.
“In a world that is increasingly connected and fragmented – and particularly in the Android market – our modular NAGRA MediaLive and anyCAST solutions give them the edge to be well-positioned in a very fast-changing and increasingly competitive industry.”
