DUBAI — Conax, global content security provider for multi-device digital content distribution, today announced it has furthered its partnership with pay-tv provider, Malivision. The Malivision DTT platform has chosen an upgrade Conax CAS7 to Conax Contego™, flagship content security solution from Conax, to secure its MMDS operations. The solution includes functionality for centralized security operations and comprehensive system management easily managed through a highly user-friendly interface.

Conax Contego™ offers Malivision reduced cycle time and efficient interface for easily managing consumer product offerings. The Conax Contego™ platform is installed with a complete functionality set, thus additional features are easily enabled at a later time – and includes a full-fledged DRM solution to control what the end-user is allowed to do with the content. Management of chipset pairing, for an additional level of protection, is highly flexible and easily administered. All pairing transactions are stored in the audit log for easy tracking.

“Malivision has been very satisfied with the performance of the Conax CAS7 solution and the cooperation with Conax skilled professionals. Upgrading to the next generation Conax security platform was a natural choice,” confirms Serge Dergham, GM, Malivision. The additional functionality and ease-of-use provided by the Conax Contego user interface has furnished Malivision with highly secure platform that is easily maintained through an advanced, yet intuitive and flexible management system.

“The new solution provides additional robustness, offering more flexibility and easier implementation of features requested by our customers, such as prepaid card services, flexible subscription dates and much more, continues Mr. Dergham. It also can be employed to manage virtual operators, opening the door for us to new contracts with contents providers. The upgrade to the Conax Contego platform was well worth the time, money, and effort. ”

Conax Contego™ scales horizontally, meaning capacity and performance can easily be increased by adding additional hardware. Advanced scalability and redundancy are built into the platform’s architecture, including a comprehensive monitoring solution for early detection of potential issues, to reduce operational risk.

“Conax Contego delivers improved performance in terms of reliability and performance and scales exceptionally well, says Saad Mouneimne, Director Area Sales ME & Africa. The upgrade to Conax Contego highlighted the smooth migration from our CAS7 products to the Conax solution, without disrupting the subscriber relationships and the daily platform operations.”
