Verimatrix Heralds the Rise of the Software-Empowered Video Operator at TV Connect 2014

Executive Team to Share Vision of Software and IP-Centric Future and Roadmap of Key Security Solutions to Reflect Market Changes

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 03/14/14 -- TV Connect 2014 -- Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, is enhancing its range of Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS™) security solutions to further address the transition towards all IP and hybrid networks and to specifically meet cable operators' needs. Verimatrix is introducing VCAS™ for Broadcast-Hybrid as a new multi-network revenue security solution that draws on the strengths of the global number one VCAS™ for IPTV and the highly successful VCAS™ for Internet TV. It is designed to better enable combinations of RF and multicast linear delivery with advanced adaptive bitrate (ABR) service offerings, while ensuring harmonized rights management for consumers viewing content inside and outside the home.

VCAS for Broadcast-Hybrid combines efficient and secure linear service delivery over RF networks with modern server-side key management, and fully leverages enhanced HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) security for catch-up/on-demand and unicast linear services to set-top boxes (STBs), mobile devices and smart TVs. In addition, VCAS for Broadcast-Hybrid includes an available integrated VideoMark™ forensic watermark component, one of the many architectural features that position this solution to meet with enhanced content protection requirements for UHD/4K service deployments.

For all service providers moving to an IP-centric network, Verimatrix is also launching a new executive e-book, "The Rise of the Software-Empowered Operator," which explores why the video services industry is experiencing a steady technological and cultural shift toward a value proposition that is more software-centric and adaptable. Pay-TV operators that capitalize on software-based technologies and standards are better positioned to populate, power and manage a flexible suite of resources that exist in data centers and across the network infrastructure. In addition, the e-book outlines the key security elements required in a new vision of revenue security to best support this software-empowered video operator model. The e-book is available for download at www.verimatrix.com/sw-empowered or at the company's TV Connect stand (#149).

"As we move towards the next generation of video services, we believe that pay TV operators have an opportunity to gain an advantage that propels them beyond the current limitations of their physical resources and enables them to better respond to changing market dynamics," said Tom Munro, CEO, Verimatrix. "We are excited to share the important implications and operator advantages of the software-empowered video operator model at TV Connect, while also detailing how our own solution has evolved to reflect these trends and developments."

Verimatrix will showcase VCAS for Broadcast-Hybrid at TV Connect, along with supporting demonstrations, including:

  • Com Hem's multi-network solution for flexible delivery of video services, featuring TiVo's hybrid PVR and a range of tablet applications secured by VCAS for Broadcast-Hybrid. With a broadcast QAM/Multicast IP plus over-the-top (OTT) video architecture, the deployment emphasizes "single security" approach across STB/DVR and CE devices.

  • RealNetworks' RealHome Media Portal, which features integrated VCAS security, and unifies broadcast TV with OTT content for a wide range of connected devices including STBs, smart TVs, PCs, tablets, network attached storage (NAS) and mobile.

  • Integrated revenue security and analytics, highlighted by the combination of ViewRight® ONE client security architecture with the Genius Digital analytics agent to provide an integrated solution for harmonized rights management and operational analytics across STB, internet and mobile devices.

  • VCAS for Internet TV latest release which features download and offline playback functionality, demonstrated in conjunction with player partners across PC, Android and iOS platforms.
