Poland’s Chopin taps Nagra’s OpenTV for wholesale streaming service

Polish cable operator Chopin Cable Television has turned to Nagra to use the latter’s OpenTV video platform as the base for its new streaming offering.

Chopin, which operates in Pomerania in northern Poland, will also wholesale the service to other mid-sized operators across Poland.

Chopin is tapping Nagra technology to launch an advanced OTT service designed to expand its subscriber base.

Reselling this service means Chopin will enable other similar-sized regional operators outside its footprint with a turn-key service.

The concept is that the service will enable pay TV operators, ISPs and regional content companies to offer a multiscreen entertainment service without having to roll out their own infrastructure, reducing the initial investment and the time needed to launch.

Powered by Nagra OpenTV Video Platform, the cloud-based solution utilises the Ion user experience across a variety of streaming devices. With tools for content aggregation, offer management, bundling and pricing, content management and app layout visualization, the Nagra Nagra will also include content security capabilities from the NAGRA Other features include AI-powered personalized recommendations from partner XRoadMedia, designed to offer a consistent user experience across BYOD streaming and traditional linear programming.

“We sought a partner that could help us successfully expand our broadcast proposition to also offer an OTT solution that aggregates the breadth of content our consumers demand. Having already deployed Nagra security solutions, it was a natural next step to broaden our partnership and continue exceeding our customers’ expectations,” said Bogdan Laga ,CEO at Chopin.

“Nagra’s partnership extension with Chopin is a testament to our continued relationship and enables us to go beyond content protection to extend their service reach. This deployment represents yet another example of the decreased time to market, cost-effectiveness and flexibility mid-sized operators, like Chopin, are looking for in offering an advanced OTT streaming solution that will increase consumer engagement, improve customer retention, and expand their subscriber base,” said Olivier Met, senior vice president, EMEA sales for Nagra.
