Cable MSO TCCL selects Verimatrix VCAS architecture

Telecom Lead @ Convergence India 2013: Thamizhaga Cable TV Communication (TCCL), a cable multi-service operator in India, has selected the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) architecture to provide cardless revenue security for its new digital cable TV service.

TCCL plans to digitize Tamil Nadu state in the next 12 months.

The cable MSO will rely on VCAS for DVB to secure its new digital premium content offering and help promote subscriber and revenue growth.

TCCL’s new digital cable service offers subscribers 500 digital channels, 200 pay TV channels and 24 high definition (HD) channels. The MSO will add Internet, IPTV, video on demand (VoD), online shopping and gaming services in the future.

VCAS for DVB will enable TCCL to deploy a unified cardless security solution to both live and interactive content delivery via a single security head-end, reducing OPEX and CAPEX as TCCL expands its services.

Using a cardless security solution also eliminates the burden of managing the logistics of smart cards.

“TCCL places a strong emphasis on quality of service (QoS) and content. As such, it was very important to choose a revenue security solution that would enable us to enhance subscriber experience and expand our content library,” said P Sakilan, managing director, TCCL.

Steve Oetegenn, chief sales and marketing officer, Verimatrix, said: “Doing so creates many opportunities, including expanded service offerings, new business models, increased subscribers, and other competitive advantages.”

Verimatrix is demonstrating its revenue security solutions at Convergence India 2013, 16-18 January in New Delhi.
