As reported first in Broadband TV News, Joyne selected Conax ‘Contego-as-a-Service’, cloud-based content protection security hub and Conax Cardless CAM developed by SmarDTV with pre-integrated security client Conax Core Access to handle all its content security needs.
The pay-TV platform has launched providing a bouquet of channels including premium sports offerings – featuring over 50 well-known Dutch and international channel brands, including Fox Sports HD channels and Discovery Networks Benelux. This week, the operator added five more Dutch channels, National Geographic HD, 24Kitchen, Crime & Investigation, Family 7 and Out TV. Using the pan-European beam on Eutelsat 9B viewers will be able to receive the DTH service with dishes starting from 45cm.
“Conax Contego gives us the ability to combine DVB, IPTV, and OTT clients in the same backend, giving us the flexibility to scale our service,” said Hans Brunas, CEO of Joyne.
“Additionally, through the security features of the Conax Cardless CAM, we gain access to premium channels and ability to enrich our end-user product packages. Joyne’s competitive proposition is based on flexible short-term subscriptions for Dutch viewers with second homes and mobile homes as well as special offers for public spaces in camping sites and bars. This flexibility is one of the many reasons we selected Conax Contego-as-a-Service.”
Tom Jahr, EVP Products & Partners, Conax, “The new Conax Cardless CAM from SmarDTV provides Joyne with a secure and enticing go-to-market offering, combined with Contego-as-a-Service, helping them ramp up and scale quickly. We are pleased to be selected to secure content and provide easy to use devices supporting Joyne’s unique new multi-channel offering.”
