COLOGNE, Germany — Anga Cable — Leading Greek satellite operator, Hellas Sat, is ready to launch an exciting new HD platform with conditional access from Conax. The Hellas Sat HD platform will secure its premium pay content using state-of-the art content security solution, Conax CAS7, core product from leading CA provider, Conax.

The Hellas Sat HD platform is the first HD project in Greece and a special initiative to promote the benefits of HD. Launch strategy is meant to combine promoting the optimal high quality of HD using major events as the tools to introduce the new, added-value services available with Hellas Sat HD.

Satellite broadcasting operations tailor a strategic set of technologies to provide an optimal end-to-end platform. Though conditional access is a small portion of the overall platform, it plays a very key role in securing the business results of the total business model.

“Conax content security provides Hellas Sat with the proven solution, long experience, stability and flexibility we need to ensure a highly successful HD offering,” says Georgios Skikos, Executive Technology & Operations Officer, Hellas-Sat S.A. “We are confident that we have chosen a security partner that will provide optimal protection for our most important assets – premium content.”

“Hellas Sat is the first HD platform in Greece, and Conax’s first HD project in Greece. Selection of Conax CA for the Hellas Sat HD platform is key in broadening not only Conax’s customer portfolio, but also the scale of operators and Conax deliveries in the region,” says Geir Bjørndal, COO / Sales & Marketing Director, Conax. “We are looking forward to an exciting and prosperous partnership with Hellas Sat.”
