Irdeto has increased investment in MENA with key hires and expansion, a result of working with every major pay TV operator and broadcaster in the region.

In a move Irdeto says emphasises its commitment to the region and to multi-screen, Irdeto is also announcing the key hires of some of the industry’s leading solutions architects to strengthen its offering: Industry experts David Berry, Robert Brown, and Andrew Gayter  join the company’s Multiscreen and Media Solutions team from Piksel, bringing with them extensive knowledge of industry trends and multi-screen development as well as experience delivering some of the largest strategic deployments in the MENA region.

Irdeto  argue that success in MENA is underpinned by its strong customer base, including OSN, the leading destination for premium pay TV entertainment content in the region. OSN is using Irdeto’s Media Protection solutions to securely deliver content across 140 channels.

Irdeto is also working closely with MBC HD, the Middle East’s biggest media player reaching an audience of over 100 million per day, to support the expansion of its HD and OTT services. “MBC has a very exciting future,” says Abe Naga, Head of Digital, MBC Group. “We look forward to working with companies like Irdeto to expand the landscape of broadcasting and deliver compelling entertainment experiences that enrich consumers’ lives.”

TV Connect MENA (2-3 November, 2015, Majlis Al Salam Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai) is the only major TV event in the Middle East and African region. Click here for booking and more info.
