We are also delighted with the support we have had from SecureMedia to deploy our new IPTV service.”
“Rosmedia is a new successful deployment that we have rolled out together with SecureMedia,” said Alexey Bugay, CEO of Netris. “For Rosmedia, the Encryptonite One™ System protects not only broadcast but also Video on Demand content delivery from our IPSoft iStream video server. We find this service exciting for the market and plan to use it in other deployments”.
“Rosmedia is a key operator in the Russian marketplace and we are excited to be the security solution of their state-of-the-art, distributed IPTV network”, says Fred Ellis, COO at SecureMedia. “This deployment highlights the flexibility and extensibility of the Encryptonite One™ System to successfully and economically secure operator and multi-locale sub-operator IPTV implementations and we look forward to future geo-expansion of the service.”
Rosmedia was created as a vehicle to develop an IPTV complete solution for the Russian marketplace under the guidance of CEO Mr. Oleg Milov. With a proven IPTV ecosystem of middleware from Netris and digital content protection from SecureMedia, delivery service began late 2008, offering subscribers multi-channel broadcast TV and Video-On-Demand. Expansion of the service includes the addition of new community IP Operations in the Moscow and St. Petersburg regions and by increasing its program offering with a mix of Russian and Western content.
