Altice USA (Euronext:ATC) has chosen NAGRA (SIX:KUD.S) to provide the content protection and platform to enable encryption and content security for its HD and 4K video offerings.

The deployment, which includes the NAGRA CONNECT converged CAS/DRM solution and the MediaLive platform, is intended to allow Altice USA to deploy new IP- and QAM-based content including 4K UltraHD. The NAGRA solution is designed to coexist within legacy U.S. cable systems while enabling an open choice of set-top box suppliers.

"We are in a unique position to bring innovative products and services to Altice USA's Optimum and Suddenlink customers by leveraging our global operational expertise, scale, resources, and key strategic partners like NAGRA," said Hakim Boubazine, co-president and COO, Altice USA. "We have been impressed by the flexibility NAGRA has shown in adapting to U.S.-specific requirements in a short amount of time, and this partnership will enable us to design integrated services to meet our customers' expectations."

NAGRA CONNECT is part of the company's Content Protection portfolio, offering CAS/DRM, multi-DRM and forensic watermarking technologies as well as anti-piracy and cybersecurity services. It was designed for service providers looking to deploy and secure services on connected networks, including the ability to safeguard SVOD streaming services.

The NAGRA MediaLive platform provides an all-screen business services management platform to monetize and deliver video to numerous subscriber accounts, devices and users across multiple networks. It is available as either an on-premise or cloud-based solution.
