Latens and Indieon - A unique STB and Middleware proposition to a leading DTH operator in Nepal - Sathish - 09-07-2010

New Delhi, Delhi, September 7, 2010 /India PRwire/ -- Latens (IBC stand no. 4.B60), the leading provider of software security solutions for Pay-TV, has announced a partnership with Indieon Technologies, the premier (STB) and middleware manufacturer for a secure, cardless one-way broadcasting solution for DTH broadcasters globally.

"The combination of Indieon STB range and Latens software CAS, coupled with the Indieon Middleware offers Satellite operators cost-effective, highly monetisable, future proof and very secure enhanced delivery of DTH Pay-TV services," says Adnan Dhuliawala - AGM, Business Development at Indieon Technologies. He added, "With features ranging from Interactive EPG, PPV, NVOD, USB-PVR, first ever Single Tuner based Push VOD solution, Localised advertising, Information-services and games, operators will be able to increase ARPU to a new high and at affordable pricing-levels for the first time in Asia."

Latens CAS is the world's only DVB® compliant software-only Conditional Access System (CAS) designed for operators of cable, DTH and DTT. The cardless technology offers Pay-TV operators a more dynamic and secure anti-piracy strategy at a much lower cost than traditional card-based or embedded set-top systems.
As card sharing and control word re-distribution piracy becomes more prevalent in the global Pay-TV market, DTH operators need to take steps to ensure that content and revenues are being protected.

"This integration of Latens CAS with Indieon's STB and Middleware is set to revolutionise how operators do business in Asia. This combination offers unbelievable functionality, cost points and unmatched security which of late have become the main challenge of most operators," says Rahul Nehra -Regional Director Asia for Latens.

"Indieon and Latens have worked closely together to answer the demands of operators and provide a secure one way DTH STB," said Jean-Paul Heron, Director of Set-Top Box Partner Strategy at Latens. "With Latens CAS and Indieon STBs, the operator will have a low cost, low risk cardless solution with no manufacturing outlay, distribution or card replacement costs."

Latens' unique CAS protects content across all networks, Cable, IP, DTH, DTT, be it one-way, two- way or hybrid. This allows operators to use a single Latens CAS headend for any type of network, making it a safe investment for operators expanding their Pay-Tv services across multiple distribution infrastructures.
