Verimatrix Secures Arabic Content for JoozoorTV on Unique IP Delivery Platform

IPWorldTV's Turnkey IPTV Delivery Platform Offers Wide Range of International Content

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - April 13, 2010) - NAB 2010, Apr. 13, 2010 Booth #SU1926 -- Verimatrix, setting the standard in content security technologies that enhance the value of pay-TV networks, and IPWorldTV, a provider of an end-to-end IP-based content delivery platform, today announced that JoozoorTV has deployed the IPWorldTV solution to offer leading local, religious and mainstream Arabic general entertainment content streamed to TVs. JoozoorTV, based in Massachusetts, is a leading aggregator and distributor of more than 25 local and mainstream channels and specializes in Arabic programming to subscribers around the globe.

IPWorldTV offers a patented IPTV platform that uniquely combines its content delivery network (CDN) and proprietary set-top box (STB) to manage the four main steps in the video delivery process: content acquisition, video processing, video encoding and video management. Based on the DVB-IP standard, the IPWorldTV platform can deliver high-quality content to any location without network congestion and packet loss issues otherwise associated with unmanaged networks. The company implements a proprietary quality of service (QoS) technology that enables a true television experience over the Internet.

JoozoorTV is able to deliver unique local Arabic content in standard and high definition to consumers that want access to specialized programming that is not available from satellite or cable operators. Verimatrix's VCAS™ for IPTV was selected to secure real-time video and audio streaming over the network and integrates with the subscriber management system (SMS) from MagnaQuest.

"We needed to fill in a gap that cable and satellite ignored for many years. Our offer is very targeted, using the latest IPTV technology at affordable prices," said Keiry Basalious, VP of Sales and Marketing of JoozoorTV. "IPWorldTV and Verimatrix have teamed up to provide a cost-effective and reliable solution that is different from anything else on the market today."

VCAS for IPTV provides a more sophisticated level of content security than traditional smart card-based systems for service providers, content aggregators and resellers that must secure revenue on their IP networks for live broadcast and video-on-demand content. A downloadable security system for IP clients is not only more secure, it enables less expensive set-top box hardware and can be quickly updated as required to combat potential pirate attacks.

"IP-based technologies have opened up a whole new world of possibilities for digital video delivery. Verimatrix is a security partner that shares our vision of extending these technologies to benefit a new segment of service providers on a global basis," said Mustafa Erdogan, CTO of IPWorldTV.

"We are now seeing new and mature technologies converging that offer significant opportunities for alternative service providers over the open Internet," said Steve Oetegenn, chief sales and marketing officer at Verimatrix. "We are happy to be working with technology providers like IPWorldTV to prove the power of IP-based solutions."
