Digital pay-TV platforms are growing in countries such as India, Taiwan and China. Value-added services have been introduced in established markets like Australia and New Zealand. Korea is leading the region in adopting new technologies and Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) is starting to make its mark. All this is creating exciting opportunities for digital TV solutions providers in the Asia Pacific. “We see significant growth potential for all markets in the region,” says Sue Taylor, vice-president and general manager, NDS Asia-Pacific. Andy Mathieson, director of Belfast-based Latens forecasts, “The aggregated Asia Pacific CA market is certain to grow in the short and medium term, for reasons such as the launch of new services, content companies mandating CA, and regulatory pressure. I also believe that the CA developments we’re pioneering in terms of cost of ownership and ease of provisioning will help the CA market grow throughout the region.”
