NDS wins contract to provide conditional access security on Viasat Pay TV platform

NDS Group has signed with Viasat Broadcasting to deploy NDS VideoGuard conditional access on Viasat’s digital pay-TV platform in the Nordic region.

Viasat Broadcasting will deploy VideoGuard conditional access on its DTH pay-TV platform in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland to protect Viasat’s digital subscribers from piracy and to reduce churn on the platform. NDS’s VideoGuard will initially work in parallel to the existing system using a Simulcrypt headend. This is essential to avoid disruption to the service and in order to start creating a more secure platform.

The full rollout will include a total migration of existing digital subscriber set-top boxes to NDS’s CA via an over-the-air download. Viasat chose CA from NDS to help resolve a significant piracy issue. In addition, it will allow Viasat to take advantage of new services offered by NDS’s conditional access solution, including revenue-generating opportunities leading to increased ARPU for Viasat’s pay-TV business.
