Commenting on the development, Victoriya Boklag, CEO and VP marketing and media of United Group, said: “Eon brings together television content and the services and application as delivered by Android TV making any TV a smart TV.
“To ensure a successful launch and a seamless platform, we needed the right partners. In content protection, the ability to support an Android TV deployment including multi-DRM security on all devices was key and Nagra’s line of Conax solutions perfectly met our requirements.”
Thierry Legrand, SVP sales EMEA at Nagra, added: “We congratulate United Group on the launch of Eon and the delivery of advanced features and services to their subscribers.
“Our Conax content protection solutions are the perfect fit for Eon and enabled United Group to deploy their platform quickly while ensuring the integrity of the platform and its content. We look forward to working with United Group as they continue to develop Eon and future services.”
Eon was launched by United Group in four markets – Serbia, Slovenia, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Montenegro – this October.
