DNA Deploys Integrated Booxmedia and Verimatrix Solution for OTT Video Service

Finnish technology company Booxmedia, part of the Amino group, and Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, today announced that DNA has upgraded its successful over-the-top (OTT) video service, DNA TV, with Booxmedia’s OTT platform, which is now secured by the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS™) for Internet TV solution.

The integrated cloud-based TV platform from Amino’s Booxmedia and Verimatrix enables DNA to offer more premium, paid content for customers across multiple devices, including tablets and smartphones.

Mikko Saarentaus, DNA Director of Entertainment Business Management comments: ”Offering a broader content portfolio to the users of DNA TV is a core part of our entertainment strategy. As a result of the integration of Booxmedia’s OTT and Verimatrix’s DRM solutions we are now able to provide a wider entertainment offering and new services, such as the C More Play Subsription-Video-on-Demand (SVOD) library, to our customers in Finland.”

“Booxmedia has completed iOS, Android and browser-based integrations with market-leading revenue security solutions from Verimatrix, and can now deliver OTT content securely to multiple screens,” says Booxmedia CEO Jukka Sintonen. “At Booxmedia, we’ve enjoyed a successful OTT multi-screen collaboration with DNA since 2012, and we’re excited to extend our collaboration with a proven revenue security platform from Verimatrix,”

Sintonen says: “Verimatrix has partnered with our parent company Amino on many integrations globally and we’re pleased to be extending this relationship to this exciting and innovative cloud TV deployment.”

The new deployment in Finland is also welcomed by Verimatrix. ”As OTT video delivery matures and customer appetite for content on multiple screens increases, service providers are looking to deploy more sophisticated services with premium content to maintain a competitive edge,” says Verimatrix President Steve Oetegenn. ”Booxmedia has demonstrated its ability to scale cloud-based video delivery, and now through our partnership, we can also secure live and on-demand premium content on the subscriber’s device of choice.”

In addition to managing the technology integration, Amino’s Booxmedia has also revamped DNA TV’s user interface, with fresh graphics and an improved user experience.
