  • Saffron Digital’s MainStage OTT platform to feature VCAS for Internet TV

LONDON and SAN DIEGO — Saffron Digital, a premium video platform provider that simplifies the management and delivery of multi-platform video services, has partnered with Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen video services around the globe, to offer advanced revenue security and monetization tools to broadcasters and operators.

The new partnership enhances Saffron Digital’s premium OTT platform, MainStage, with Verimatrix’s proven revenue security solution.
