Conax working with regional broadcasters to prevent content piracy in the Caribbean


NAB, Las Vegas, April 20th: Conax, a leading provider of content security solutions globally, has made a strong debut in the Caribbean, where broadcasters have long been plagued by a high degree of piracy and previous technologies have been unsuccessful at blocking impending threats.

Already providing security technology to over 300 broadcasters world-wide, Conax is focusing on the Caribbean and Mexican broadcasting markets vulnerable to a high level of piracy. Conax USA is cooperating closely with local partners, building regional partnerships to provide local implementation and support in the Caribbean, Mexico and America. Conax has secured content protection contracts with 5 new customers in the Caribbean in the last year.

“The Caribbean is a vast and varied market that we believe provides a host of opportunities in the future, comments Geir Bjørndal, EVP Sales & Marketing, Conax. Conax has several new contracts with operators that have been forced to change security solutions due to piracy issues. Our focus will be to provide the rock-solid protection necessary to battle pirates.”

Caribbean operators, varied in size by the respective island populations, commonly employ MMDS technology due to unpredictable weather and hurricanes. Dynamic local markets include highly transient customer-base with readily available resources during different seasons of the year, high-end hotel customers, and a large population of local customers.

Veronigue Leander, General Manager, TDS, Curacao, “TDS is implementing content security technology from Conax, after experiencing a number of issues with our previous solution. We are confident that Conax’s focus on high-level security will provide us with the tools to block pirates and non-paying viewers. As we expand our operations into neighboring islands, we are keen to have a content protection solution we can trust.”

“TDS chose Conax content security due to its strong track record in the world market, open standards and partnering policy and experience with complementary technologies,” confirms Veronigue Leander.
