“Learn how Android STBs fit within your pay-TV service”
Conax` SVP EMEA, Thomas Blichfeldt, brings extensive market experience in the European, Middle East and African markets and expertise in connecting pay-TV operators with the solutions that best match their business and target market. In this special conference session, Thomas will provide participants with valuable insight on the following topics:

• Benefits and impact for a pay-TV service
• Potential security pitfalls in a connected Android eco-system
• How to successfully create a compelling and secure Android-based pay-TV proposition

“Consumer interest for Android is growing in all markets based on its additional rich features and access to a wide range of 3rd party apps and connected devices,” confirms Thomas Blichfeldt. Thus, hybrid STBs based on Android OS and Android TV are increasingly attractive for pay-TV operators interested in creating a broadcast OTT offering with a wider range of entertainment services for its subscribers.”

“However, the large network of app developers also makes Android potentially highly vulnerable and exposed platform as Android STB populations are deployed on open, connected platforms. Conax is providing crucial guidance for operators deploying Android STBs to help reduce complexity and make Android a secure, lucrative option for pay-TV. Conax is partnering with Google and numerous leading technology partners to provide comprehensive, secure Android STB solutions.”
