Verimatrix secures multi-network video for GO in Malta

Verimatrix, a provider of multi-screen digital TV
services around the globe, announced a significant design win for its
Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) 3 multi-network security
solution, protecting revenue streams for GO in Malta.

VCAS solutions provide comprehensive security for GO’s
delivery of combined IPTV and over-the-top (OTT) services over its broadband

Advanced options available for the service include
digital video recorder (DVR) functions that can be network-based or user
enabled via USB expansion connectors on the set-top box (STB).

“Our vision for delivering a wide range of
high-quality video services required a state-of-the-art security solution to
protect revenue streams across high-definition (HD) TV, on-demand, time-shift
and Web applications,” said Kelvin Camenzuli, senior manager at GO.

“The close integration of the Verimatrix VCAS
solution with the technologies of other partners in the project enables us to
rapidly expand the scope of operations and introduce further new services
without complicated upgrades or otherwise having to disturb our customers. It
also enables deployment of network PVR features for the benefit of the
consumer,” Camenzuli added.

From both the operator and the consumer perspective,
integration of IPTV and Internet TV delivered services could not be more
seamless, bringing together a TV service that combines the best of traditional
linear TV programming with innovative cloud-based media and applications via
consistent rights management environment at the head end, and with a unified
and intuitive user interface.

At the core of GO’s deployment is the award-winning VCAS
for IPTV software-based content security solution, which eliminates the
vulnerabilities related to smart card-based architectures through the leverage
of mature, proven two-way Internet security protocols, a Public Key
Infrastructure public/private key pair system and X.509 digital certificates.

DVR support is enabled as a completely consistent element
of the overall architecture, enabling operators to retain full business rule
control over locally or network recorded media assets. VCAS for IPTV enables
complete transparency for legitimate content consumption while significantly
raising the level of protection against content piracy.

VCAS for IPTV is a fully integrated component of the
umbrella VCAS 3 architecture, which supports a standards-based and fully
integrated approach to protected Internet TV service delivery.

“We are proud of the smooth integration and highly
flexible deployment that we enabled for GO in Malta,” said Steve Oetegenn,
chief sales and marketing officer, Verimatrix.

Cryptography Research, a division of Rambus, and
Verimatrix recently announced 
that Verimatrix has licensed Cryptography Research’s CryptoFirewall(TM)
security core technology to help build advanced solutions protecting video
delivery revenue streams.
