Leading Independent Revenue Security Provider Expands Spectrum of Solutions for IP, DVB and OTT Hybrid Video Services

AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands — IBC 2011 — Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, will be demonstrating its technical and commercial momentum in multiplatform revenue security at IBC 2011 on Sept. 9-13, with an emphasis on its role as service providers are redefining their hybrid network architectures, which is occurring at an accelerated pace. A range of Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS™) 3 solutions will be on display illustrating an expanded capability to enable multi-network, multi-screen video security, in conjunction with partner integrations and customer deployment examples, in Hall 4, Booth B54.

Underscoring the market adoption of VCAS 3 is the alignment of its architecture with the support of new technical and commercial standards that help enable service providers to build more flexible and scalable multiplatform delivery networks. Verimatrix strongly endorses the progress made in standards by the Open IPTV Forum (OIPF), the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE) and MPEG-DASH, as well as advances in multi-vendor security initiatives such as Marlin. Verimatrix security experts will be on hand to discuss why open DRM standards are instrumental in enabling the type of consumer choice targeted by the world’s leading digital TV operators.

Featured Technologies

  • OTT and Hybrid Networks: VCAS™ for Internet TV, the standards-based solution of secure over-the-top (OTT) services delivery, will illustrate its support of a dramatically expanded range of client device types. ViewRight® Web integrations with HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) players now support smart (connected) TVs and OTT set-top boxes, Android smartphones and tablets, as well as the PC/Mac and iPad/iPhone.

    These integrations illustrate an impressive user experience that unifies an operator’s premium video-on-demand (VOD) services, online video, social networking services and other interactive TV applications that can be combined with the subscriber management and service provisioning systems.

  • IP and DVB Hybrid Networks: VCAS™ for DVB, the company’s recently acquired DVB conditional access (CA) technology, is now fully integrated with Verimatrix’s IP-based content security. The enhanced solution provides support for broadcast (one-way) as well as DVB hybrid networks from a unified head-end, with a single point of integration.

    The Verimatrix Operator Management Interface (OMI), which integrates back-end operational systems with VCAS, supports homogenous subscriber and rights management for heterogeneous networks and devices, including IPTV, DVB, hybrid, Internet TV/OTT and mobile TV. A common architecture for hybrid client devices enables dynamic dual network functionality for combinations of DVB and intermittent IP delivery networks.

  • Multi-Screen Services: MultiRights™ capabilities, highlighted by a multi-screen VOD solution developed in conjunction with RCDb, together with PlayReady-based service demonstration to PCs and game consoles will also be on display.
