Conax claims World #3 in CA

Conax is having a good year, especially in India where it is claiming 68% growth over the past year. Conax, owned by Telenor of Norway, says it is now the World’s third-largest supplier to the global content security market. Conax made the statement ahead of its exhibit at the Convergence India show, which opens today (March 18-20) in New Delhi.

In India, Conax says it is “trusted by major operators such as Dish TV, WWIL and Digicable, and is also successfully working with various other cable operators and content providers. Showing growth of 68% last year, Conax continues to strengthen its market position.”

Conax’ core offering, Conax CAS7, provides operators with highly secure content protection built on Conax’ 15 years of security experience and strong anti-piracy record. Conax security solutions are non-proprietary and based on an open licensing policy for set-top box (STB) manufacturers.

“Conax’ pioneering strategy has been an important factor for our success and growth in the region. A key element is Conax’ strategy and ongoing policy for development of non-discriminatory, non-royalty relationships with 100’s of STB vendors. In fact, the Conax strategy has encouraged STB providers to offer operators a rich selection of quality consumer devices and competitive pricing alternatives for all market segments,” said Geir Bjørndal, EVP Sales & Marketing, Conax.

“In today’s competitive digital TV market, digital broadcasting operators and content providers are looking to specialist solutions, like Conax, to secure their platforms and premium content. What makes Conax unique is that Conax focuses on content protection only, providing all other services through a strategic network of best in class partners,” confirmed Bjørndal.
