CSTB, MOSCOW – 27 January 2016 – Irdeto, a world leader in digital platform security, today announced that it will be providing security solutions and services to Caspio HD, a new private DTH satellite operator in Kazakhstan. Irdeto Cloaked CA provides Caspio HD with a highly secure and cost-effective solution to launch its new TV service, featuring premium movies and sports content in HD.

In launching the first DTH platform to offer premium HD content in Kazakhstan, it was particularly important to Caspio HD to ensure their valuable entertainment and sports content was effectively protected from increasingly sophisticated piracy threats. Caspio HD required a partner that could bring them cost efficiency in a price-sensitive market, as well as demonstrate a deep level of security expertise and local market knowledge to ensure a smooth deployment.

“As a DTH operator whose business is built on providing subscribers with premium entertainment, we are very focused on guaranteeing the best protection for our investments,” said Talgat Shakenov, Managing Director at Caspio HD. “We greatly appreciate how Irdeto’s cardless conditional access solution offered us greater flexibility to deploy a variety of TV services. Irdeto ensured our go-to market was as fast and seamless as possible without the logistical complexity of smart cards.”

“Market research suggests that the number of premium pay TV subscribers in Kazakhstan will reach half a million people within the next three years. To ensure that Caspio HD’s investment in this burgeoning market was fully realized, they understood the importance of a flexible and secure solution for their new pay TV service,” explained Andrey Silanchev, Sales Director in Russia and CIS, Irdeto. “It’s Caspio HD’s goal to further develop its multi-screen proposition and Irdeto is proud to enable Caspio HD to reach new customers while ensuring that premium services – such as live sports – remain protected from piracy.”

Irdeto’s Media Access and Management suite of solutions provide fully robust and effective security for both broadcast networks and connected IP environments.
