Verimatrix Brings Multi-Network Solutions Forum to CABSAT 2013

Esteemed Panel of Experts to Explore How to Optimize Networks With OTT Video Services for Enhanced Revenue Security

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES--(Marketwire - Mar 2, 2013) - CABSAT 2013 -- Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, today announced that it will host its next Multi-network Solutions in the Real World Forum at CABSAT 2013 in Dubai. During the breakfast Forum on the first day of the event, the Forum's expert panelists will explore how to best extend and optimize networks with over-the-top (OTT) video services. Adding OTT video to existing pay-TV services has proven to not only reduce subscriber churn, but can also target new users and achieve growth that might not otherwise be possible.

Panelists from thebrainbehind, Intigral, SoftAtHome, Magnaquest and Verimatrix will discuss how progressive operators can offer video services over combinations of managed networks (cable and satellite, IPTV, and terrestrial) and Internet TV / OTT to off-the-shelf consumer electronics devices. The complimentary Forum is scheduled for 12 March 2013 from 8:00 to 10:00 hours in the Abu Dhabi Room B of the Dubai International Convention Center.

"Implementing a multi-network, multi-screen strategy has been shifting away from a strictly defensive competitive move to a significant new revenue opportunity," said Steve Oetegenn, chief sales and marketing officer, Verimatrix. "OTT video can extend reach not just within the subscriber network domain, but also homes outside their physical network, which can open up new global markets. At our CABSAT Forum, our panelists will share the expertise they have garnered through real world deployments, offering our attendees practical strategies for optimizing their networks for enhanced revenue security and increased ROI."

Verimatrix will also host several demonstrations at CABSAT in booth #B3-12 including a demonstration of Etisalat's award-winning deployment of the VCAS architecture on its advanced IP-based pay-TV service. Other demonstrations include:

  • Cardless DVB security for one-way broadcast network services: cable, satellite and terrestrial

  • DVB-Hybrid security featuring a single security approach to combinations of broadcast and Internet video services, future proofing your managed network video platform with OTT extensibility

  • IP-Hybrid security for progressive cable operators with a transition to an all-IP video future in mind

  • Enhanced adaptive streaming security for OTT video to iOS and Android-based tablets and smartphones, smart TVs & STBs, and PC/Mac platforms
