In a move that will see the two companies extend content protection solutions to direct-to-TV use cases on smart TVs for the German SES subsidiary and operator of the HD+ satellite platform, Nagra and HD PLUS have renewed their technology partnership.

seseurosport 6august2017 1Nagra content protection supports the HD PLUS solution on smart TVs not requiring an external device, such as a conditional access module (CAM) or set-top box (STB).

It also offers the new HD+ Komfort-Funktion (HD+ comfort function); enables the Neustart (instant restart) of selected programmes; direct access to Mediatheken seven-day-catch-up; and an interactive TV Guide with customisable search patterns covering linear TV as well as via satellite as well as non-linear content. Instant service activation, live TV and start-over directly on the TV is available without an external device.

“We are pleased to continue our successful partnership with Nagra over the long term and extend it with Nagra content security directly integrated in Smart TVs,” said Georges Agnes, managing director operations and product development of HD PLUS. “We successfully deployed this solution in Samsung and Panasonic smart TVs which gives consumers instant access to the HD+ service and its HD+ Komfort-Funktion in a robust and secure environment.”

“HD PLUS has been at the forefront of innovation in the European pay-TV industry and we’re excited to continue to support them as they transition their pay-TV services to smart TVs giving consumers more innovative ways to access their premium content,” added Thierry Legrand, senior vice president of sales at Nagra EMEA.

In addition to Samsung and Panasonic, Nagra is working with HD PLUS on deploying its application on additional smart TV brands.
