NDS opens new unit in Seoul

November 16, 2007 – NDS has announced that it is increasing its presence in Korea with the opening of a new expanded sales, support and R&D operation in Seoul. NDS Korea is currently pivotal to the company’s R&D development for the region, and has moved from supporting local Korean customers to becoming a key resource in developing future core technologies to digital pay-TV providers globally. NDS reports that its end-to-end systems are in operation across IPTV, cable and satellite DTH platforms, with its local customers accounting for nearly 70% of the Korean pay-TV market. “NDS has had sales, support and research and development facilities in Seoul for over six years,” said Sue Taylor, VP and General Manager of NDS Asia Pacific. “The Seoul operation has now grown to more than 120 employees. NDS Korea is pivotal in our ability to roll out state-of-the-art technologies, such as advanced conditional access and middleware solutions, set-top box (STB) integration and mobile solutions, to some of the world’s largest broadcasters. The opening of the new NDS Seoul office is in recognition that Korea is a key player in the deployment of digital pay-TV.” The Korean government is promoting 100% digitisation of the country by 2012, and the encouragement of greater competition and consumer choice in pay-TV and broadband markets is expected to accelerate uptake of digital solutions.
