Verimatrix recently announced that the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) for DVB has been deployed by TiVi (News - Alert) S.A. With this deployment, TiVi S.A is expecting to enhance revenue security for its DVB terrestrial (DVB-T2), one-way network. Till date VCAS for DVB has been successfully deployed by more than 100 operators across the globe and since its deployment no confirmed security breaches have been reported.
In a statement, Charles-Edouard Denis, founder and chief executive officer, TiVi, said that, "Verimatrix (News - Alert) offers a progressive approach to content security for DVB networks that provides us a cost-effective upgrade path for our network and our subscribers. As we continue to rapidly grow our subscriber base and launch new services, having such a scalable solution at the core of our offering will prove to be a significant competitive advantage for us."
VCAS for DVB provides TiVi with a robust solution for securing its linear content library and associated revenue for broadcast services delivered via its DVB-T2 terrestrial broadcast-only network. DVB-T2 which has been developed as an advanced digital terrestrial television (DTT) system is capable of supporting SD, HD, and mobile TV, among other combinations. The new standard, similar to DVB-T, is ideal for roof-top and set-top antennas as well as for PCs, laptops, in-car receivers, radios, smartphones, dongles, among other receiving devices.
Alvaro Cardenas, CTO, Ecuatronix USA, and master integrator for TiVi said that, "Operators around the globe are seizing the opportunities presented by deploying robust new revenue security solutions, such as VCAS for DVB. TiVi chose VCAS as a proven and scalable solution as it directly impacts an operator's ability to expand its service offering and attract and retain new subscribers. We chose to partner with Verimatrix on this exciting deployment because we are confident that their team and their VCAS technology can help TiVi S.A. achieve its multi-screen goals of the future while also protecting its existing assets."
Ecuatronix was selected as the systems integrator for the project which included head-end video processing solutions from ATEME, SIMULSAT dish technology from ATCi's (News - Alert), in addition to SIRA's broadcast antennas and Axcera's transmitters.
