LAUSANNE, Switzerland — iWedia, a leading provider of software solutions for TV devices to service operators and Consumer Electronics manufacturers, today announced that it has integrated its Teatro-3.0 software solution for connected zappers with the Conax Contego™ content protection platform.

The announcement was made to coincide with the opening of ANGA COM 2015 which is held in Cologne from Tuesday, June 9th through to Thursday, June 11th. iWedia is exhibiting at the show (hall 10.2, booth A30) during which it will demonstrate the integrated solution.

The Conax Contego™ content protection platform is a sophisticated, fully scalable solution that supports any pay-TV business model and a multitude of consumer devices. Conax Contego™ combines DVB, IPTV and OTT clients in the same unified security back-end for easy navigation and configuration. Choosing Conax Contego™ equips operators with a future-proof platform that enables growth and expansion into new business areas and technology.

iWedia Teatro-3.0 software solution for connected zappers is based on Linux. Its User Interface is built in HTML/CSS and makes use of specific JavaScript APIs allowing access to digital TV features. The solution features DLNA (player and renderer), “walled garden” Web services (CE-HTML portals, HbbTV applications), as well as Personal Video Recorder and Time Shift Buffer.

Conax Smart Card client software has been integrated within Teatro-3.0 to benefit from the features of Conax’ security platform and protect live and time-shifted content.

“We see this integration as a perfect match,” says Sunghoon Kim, VP Sales at iWedia. “We bring a sophisticated yet compact STB software allowing access to live, on demand, and time shifted content with a catchy HTML-based UI, while Conax brings the right security technology requested by TV service providers to deliver their premium content”.
