PAY TV / TECHNOLOGY
Eight companies associated with CUTA initiate Pay-TV digital operations using Conax Contego for content security implemented by BOLD MSS.
Since last April 4, the Uruguayan cable TV companies Consorcio Libertad Digital SRL; Telecable La Paz; TV Cable Rocha; TV Cable Melo; TV Cable Lux; CablePlus; TV Cable Carmelo and Florida Satelital, associated with CUTA (Uruguayan Television Camera for Subscribers), have initiated Pay-TV digital operations using the content security platform Conax Contego of NAGRA.
NAGRA is considered the world’s leading independent provider of content protection and multi-screen television solutions, with operations and technical support provided by BOLD MSS, the regional leader in the provision of the most advanced solutions for content distribution in Uruguay.
The Conax Contego platform allows rapid, safe configuration and navigation, which can be implemented quickly and efficiently for traditional transmission devices such as decoders, tablets, smartphones, Smart TVs and hybrid decoders.
According to the president of CUTA, Washington Melo, “It is an unprecedented experience for the Pymes in Uruguay. We believe that this type of union of companies, will allow us to move forward in other projects in keeping with the times that run for the industry of the distribution of TV for subscribers.”
These associations that CUTA realizes are made as a measure to continue to remain in the market because investments are required that independently could not be confronted.
For his part, the Commercial Manager of BOLD MSS, Ariel Droyeski, added that: “Our commitment to small and medium-sized regional operators is constant and we are proud to offer them the best available technology and to be their link with the world’s leading digital security companies, as NAGRA.”
It is necessary to emphasize that this type of associations provides a greater degree of independence and possibilities of permanence in a market increasingly threatened by globalization and some of its negative consequences, as is the growing Internet piracy.
