Intigral Appoints Verimatrix for Multiscreen DRM

Award-Winning VCAS for Internet TV Selected With MultiRights for IP Multiscreen Delivery

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS--(Marketwired - Sep 9, 2016) - IBC 2016 (Booth #5.A59) -- 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."
