Intigral Appoints Verimatrix for Multiscreen DRM
Award-winning VCAS for Internet TV selected with MultiRights for IP multiscreen delivery
Amsterdam, IBC 2016 (Booth #5.A59) – 9 Sept 2016 —Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, announced the deployment of its Video Content Authority System (VCAS™) for Internet TV with MultiRights™ for a new IPTV/OTT service from Intigral, a leading video delivery solutions company in the Middle East and North Africa.
Delivered in HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) format, Intigral’s new service is secured through the optimal multi-screen DRM capabilities of VCAS for Internet TV, which are designed to ensure that decryption keys are only distributed to authorized users and devices. The MultiRights framework provides a unified processing for devices using different DRMs to ensure a transparent consumer experience.
"As we continue to move forward with our services and transform user experiences, it is essential we develop a technology infrastructure that can deliver on our content protection needs with a multi-DRM platform,” said Barry Mehdizadeh, GM Technology Business and Solutions at Intigral. “Our long-term delivery strategy is based on HEVC (H.265) for VOD and linear TV, and it is crucial to establish long term relationships with partners we trust. The VCAS architecture—with VCAS for Internet TV, MultiRights and eventually the VideoMark watermarking toolbox—was a clear choice given Verimatrix’s reputation as a global leader in revenue security and its strong network of strategic alliances with our existing partners.”
“Powered by the multi-network VCAS architecture, VCAS for Internet TV equips Intigral with enhanced security capabilities that are critical for protecting the premium content it offers through a more flexible viewing model,” said Steve Oetegenn, president at Verimatrix. “The Middle East remains a growing market for Internet TV services, and we are pleased to broaden our expertise in the region by helping Intigral gain a strategic edge with a reliable platform for IP video delivery across devices, including the H.265 set-top box.”
