Latens expands ‘du’ IPTV system
Software-based conditional access specialists Latens says its CA system being supplied to the ‘du' IPTV pay-TV service in the United Arab Emirates has passed the 50,000 subscriber number. Piracy is a major problem in the region amongst conventional DTH broadcasters.
"We are aggressively pursuing our plans for growth and expansion as we are confident of the potential for growth of our IPTV service," said Farid Faraidooni, EVP Commercial du. "To do this successfully, it is imperative that our CA system can be upgraded and scaled without any disruption to our current services and customers, Latens does this and helps us to achieve our goals efficiently."
"Pay-TV piracy in the Middle East is well reported as a serious problem for network operators and their content providers. Operators like du are aware of the unique advantages of Latens software CA, and how it can enable their business, says Gary Else, Director of Strategic Alliances, Latens. "I look forward to further success with du, as this highly ambitious operator continues to grow and innovate."
