Nepal’s Largest Direct-to-home Pay-TV Operator Takes Advantage of Next-generation DVB Cardless Security from Verimatrix

  • DishHome Upgrades VCAS for DVB Platform to Support Rapid Service Growth

SAN DIEGO — Verimatrix, a specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for network-connected devices and services, today announced that customer DishHome has extended its investment to support next-generation DVB cardless security, powered by the VCAS Ultra™ platform. Headquartered in Kathmandu, DishHome is Nepal’s largest direct-to-home (DTH) operator and has relied on Verimatrix for DVB security since 2011.

“Having formed such a deep level of trust in Verimatrix and its best-in-class security over the years, our decision to further our investment was automatic,” said DishHome Chief Operating Officer Keshav Kanta Poudel. “We are pleased to take advantage of the enhanced, next-generation security platform as we prepare to expand service offerings and significantly broaden our reach to capture a larger subscriber base with the shutdown of analog transmission in the country.”

DishHome originally invested in VCAS for DVB to provide a future-proof approach to revenue security that could scale with the company and maintain its position as a market leader as business models continued to evolve. In addition to enhanced security, the latest advancements in DVB support from the VCAS Ultra platform offer EMM bandwidth optimization. This results in optimization of the Satellite Transponder Bandwidth utilization, which enables more channels to be added to DishHome services.

“VCAS for DVB cardless security has supported DishHome’s service expansion over the past few years, and by upgrading to our most advanced Ultra technology, it will continue to support its rapid expansion plans for the short, medium and long term,” said Steve Oetegenn, president of Verimatrix. “The upgrade also optimally positions DishHome for future service options including DVB-hybrid and multi-screen delivery. We are excited to be there every step of the way as it continues to break new ground in Nepal.”
