VTVcab in Vietnam chose Nagra to support the service provider’s new digital TV platform and ongoing digitization efforts.

Nagra will provide VTVcab with its anyCAST content protection, OpenTV 5 HTML5 connectware, Gravity user interface and MediaLive multiscreen solutions to secure and enable a range of basic cable services and advanced features, including video-on-demand, personal video recording, OTT, time-shifting capabilities and applications.

This latest engagement for Nagra comes on the heels of major deployments for the company in the Asia-Pacific market and marks the company’s expanding presence in the region.

“Our goal is to bring the highest quality programming and services to our subscribers coupled with a high-end user experience,” said Nam Bui, CTO of VTVcab. “We chose to grow our business with Nagra for its comprehensive suite of digital TV solutions and their expertise in bringing new and advanced services to market quickly and efficiently.”

Jean-Luc Jezouin, Nagra’s SVP for sales and services in  Asia Pacific, said that with this new platform, VTVcab is transforming the pay-TV experience in Vietnam and will bring a whole new level of services to viewers in the country.

VTVcab serves more than two million subscribers in Vietnam. The operator’s new platform is expected to launch in the fall of 2015 as an addition to its existing platform secured by Conax, another Kudelski Group company.
