Ono chooses Nagra to protect hybrid platform

Nagravision has been selected by Spanish pay-TV operator Ono to secure its next generation, hybrid TV platform. The platform will be the first broadband/broadcast content delivery network in Spain.

Nagravision’s conditional access will secure all of Ono’s next generation services, which are expected to feature existing services such as video-on-demand and pay-per-view as well as new and advanced DVR functionality. The offer will combine Ono’s pay-TV service with access to internet-based content.

The new agreement extends the relationship between both parties. Nagravision will provide security technology in addition to the existing information management (IMS) and content management systems (CMS) already used by Ono. Nagravision’s latest conditional access will be integrated in all next generation set-top boxes deployed by Ono, including DVR platforms and standard devices.
