SAN DIEGO — Verimatrix, a specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for network-connected devices and services, today announced that its MultiRights OTT™ solution has been deployed to secure the new Your TV Now service from Minerva Networks. Completely hosted via the Verimatrix Secure Cloud™, MultiRights OTT offers subscribers of Your TV Now a transparent consumption experience by harmonizing multiple DRMs via a common platform for comprehensive security for the multi-screen service.

Your TV Now, built on the proven Minerva 10 platform, is a turnkey, white-labeled solution, hosted and managed by Minerva, that offers advanced pay TV services to set-top boxes and popular streaming media devices. MultiRights OTT not only provides a common infrastructure for multi-DRM management for Your TV Now, but also ensures long term maintenance of the solution as component technologies evolve.

“Verimatrix was the obvious security partner for us to launch this new and innovative OTT service with,” said Mauro Bonomi, CEO of Minerva Networks. “Your TV Now gives operators the opportunity to offer advanced TV services on existing set-tops and new streaming media devices with the operational advantages of the cloud. By integrating with the leader in IP-based security, operators can also get access to premium content to boost their competitive edge.”

By leveraging MultiRights, operators can deploy multi-network services with the knowledge that they have a platform that will absorb changes in security schemes as they occur while evolving compelling multi-screen services. The solution provides extensible support for the leading DRMs including VCAS™ for Internet TV, PlayReady, FairPlay Streaming, Primetime and Widevine.
