Nagravision to join up with OpenTV

By
Liberty Media is to sell its controlling stake in interactive middleware provider OpenTV to Kudelski Group, the parent company of conditional access systems provider Nagravision.

OpenTV and Nagravision had already been working closely on a variety of projects to better compete against NDS, a subsidiary of News Corp, and OpenTV chairman and CEO James Chiddix said he expects the tie-up to create opportunities to "bundle solutions, sell products into Kudelski's existing customer base, save costs through various integration and joint R&D efforts and collaborate more effectively in several early stage sectors, such as the digital terrestrial market."

Nagravision's conditional access systems are used in the UK by NTL Telewest.
