Conax a driver for Africa's pay-TV expansion with strong regional track record in secure digital migration - robust operator roadmap to ensure future-oriented business


Conax, part of the Kudelski Group and provider of total service protection for pay-TV service providers, content owners and entertainment services, today announced its continued commitment to furthering African pay-TV growth through targeted solutions for secure content, pricing and user experience.

The security provider secures content revenue, operations and STB infrastructure for over 32 DTH and DTT operators across Africa and believes that both its open ecosystem approach and recently launched modular "Pay-as-you-Grow" model will enable further growth both for the security provider and operators.

The modular business model empowers operators to establish or upgrade an operation with limited initial investment and then incrementally add support for higher subscriber volumes and new content service offerings such as network PVR, Catch-up, VOD, multiscreen and more, as their platform grows. The model is seen as a benchmark for enabling all types of pay-TV operators to build their business, add fresh new user experiences and increase market share with reduced risk.
