Marking the first cloud deployment of the cloud solution in Mexico, Ultravision has extended its service portfolio of its UltraTV IPTV multiscreen service for Android and iOS devices with Conax GO Live.

NAGRA Ultravision ConaxGOLive 4Set for launch later in October 2018, UltraTV offers linear pay-TV channels and also both domestic and international live TV channels. Features include start-over, catch-up and trick-play capabilities, with full electronic programme guide (EPG) functionality on linear TV channels enabling a 24/7 service.

Ultravision has been a long-term Conax technology customer and explaining why it maintained its use of the NAGRA-owned solution, CEO Patricio Zorrilla said: “We wanted to launch an IPTV multiscreen service very fast, without the complexity. Cost-efficiency was also a key consideration in a low ARPU market like Mexico, and after evaluating different options, we decided to move forward with the Conax GO Live solution delivered as a service operating on Amazon Web Services (AWS), integrated with Conax Contego, our content security platform. It is the perfect extension enabling us to launch linear TV channels quickly and effortlessly on mobile consumer devices.”

NAGRA also created an end-to-end IPTV multiscreen solution that was ready to deploy in less than 30 days. This included a content management system and white-label apps for iOS and Android mobile devices. End-users can also cast their content to a TV screen using Google Cast or Apple AirPlay. By running on AWS, the Conax GO Live solution operates on the Conax Contego unified content security platform supporting major native DRMs.
