AlJazeera Sport has signed a 10-year contract with Spanish DVB technology provider to protect the broadcaster's pay-TV content against piracy using its new-generation Conditional Access System, KeyFly 2.0 Xtreme.

AlJazeera Sport's broadcasts of the main European football Leagues on High Definition have been encrypted by SIDSA's Conditional Access System.

Its KeyFly system will also protect Aljazeera Sport's transmissions of the European Champions League from next season, as well as the broadcasts of a new High Definition channel to be launched by Aljazeera in the near future.

"We are happy with the market reaction towards KeyFly 2.0 Xtreme", stated Jose Luis Isidro, commercial director of SIDSA. "In a short period, we are signing very interesting contracts which means that KeyFly 2.0 is probably one of the most advanced Conditional Access Systems in the ring."

SIDSA claims that its KeyFlyXtreme is made up of the latest security and encryption techniques providing the highest level of protection at a minimum cost by using integrated circuits developed by SIDSA.
