Nagra expands Dish security partnership

Swiss-based content protection specialist Nagra has extended its partnership with Dish Network and EchoStar Technologies in the US.

Dish and EchoStar are deploying Nagra’s MediaLive Player (NMP) – which includes its MediaAccess Persistent Rights Management (PRM) technology – and Nagra’s studio-approved DRM solution, which will secure the Dish Anywhere multiscreen VoD service for computers, smartphones and tablets.

“More and more consumers are demanding greater flexibility in the way they enjoy their Dish content. To successfully provide this service, we chose the Nagra MediaLive Player with PRM because of their proven ability to effectively protect our content investment while at the same time meeting the requirements of our premium content providers. What’s more, our close security partnership with Nagra allows us to focus on creating innovative new services,” said Vivek Khemka, Dish senior vice president of product management.

Nagra is owned by Kudelski Group and claims to be the world’s leading independent provider of content protection and multiscreen television solutions.
