CHESEAUX, Switzerland -- Nagra, the world's leading independent provider of value-added content protection and multiscreen television solutions, announced today that a growing numbers of pay-TV service providers are deploying over-the-top services on existing devices and chipsets utilizing Nagra content protection solutions. Mediaset, Italy's leading pay-TV provider and current Nagra customer, is the latest European operator to utilize Nagra to securely deliver over-the-top video-on-demand services to its subscribers.

At the core of the solution is Nagra Media Persistent Rights Management (PRM) which provides operators like Mediaset with the foundation for delivering multiscreen services and multiple formats of video-on-demand. Offering studio-approved protection for Internet-based content, Nagra Media PRM enables early window video-on-demand services thanks to a Nagra-certified (NOCS) hardware "root of trust."

Nagra and SmarDTV, both Kudelski Group companies, are working on bringing the same studio-grade level of security to connected TVs through removable security modules, also referred to as conditional access modules (CAMs). Based on the CI+ standard, these hybrid CAMs are expected to offer access to on-demand video content and be compatible with existing TV sets.

"To remain competitive and maintain a leadership position in the pay-TV space, we have to continually innovate and invest," said Franco Ricci, General Manager R.T.I., Mediaset Group. "Thanks to Nagra security solutions, we are able to do so and deliver next generation services that integrate seamlessly into our existing offer, while enhancing the viewing experience for our subscribers. We look forward to developing our partnership with the Nagra team and working with them on bringing more advanced services to market."
