IPTV (News - Alert)-Americas has selected the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) to provide digital video content security throughout its digital video network. Currently, IPTV Americas is running trials of its IPTV solution with telecommunications carriers in Latin America and plans a full-scale launch in 2007 to meet the growing demand for sophisticated entertainment options throughout Latin America.
IPTV-Americas comes with a comprehensive IPTV solution comprising of a centralized IPTV head end in Miami with fiber optic access to telephone companies in Latin America through the NAP (network access point) of the Americas. IPTV-Americas offers aggregated products and services as well that help telephone companies leverage start-up time, and costs as well as set-up local ancillary head-ends.
“Content security is vitally important for our IPTV service in order to gain access to content,” said Alvaro Gazzolo, president and CEO of IPTV-Americas in a statement.  “Verimatrix offers an innovative approach to content security that was readily accepted by our content providers, straightforward integration and technical support, and cost-effective reseller configurations that help us gain new customers and subscribers.”
According to a news release, IPTV technology gives these programmers access to an untapped market where telephone companies’ networks have a larger reach than the cable networks in Latin America.
Verimatrix VCAS system comes with a more sophisticated level of content protection than traditional CA (conditional access) systems. VCAS is equipped with cryptographic and e-commerce technologies including PKI and X.509 certificates.
