Vietnamese cable operator VTVcab has opted for NAGRA content protection technology to support its soon-to-launch digital TV platform.

The new platform will offer VTVcab’s two million subscribers video-on-demand (VOD), personal video recording, over the top (OTT), and time shifting services.

“Our goal is to bring the highest quality programming and services to our subscribers coupled with a high-end user experience and with this new platform we are entering a new era of digital TV for Vietnam,” said Nam Bui, CTO, VTVcab.

“We chose to grow our business with NAGRA for its comprehensive suite of digital TV solutions and their expertise in bringing new and advanced services to market quickly and efficiently. This will give us the extra edge to appeal to a new generation of viewers and we are very excited to see what the future will bring.”

The contract award will see NAGRA provide the pay-TV operator with its anyCAST content protection, OpenTV 5 HTML5 connectware, Gravity user interface and MediaLive multiscreen products.

The news follows a recent award win by NAGRA to secure 4K Ultra HD content for South Korean satellite operator KT Skylife.
