Executives to Present on Latest Opportunities for Digital TV Operators to Secure New Revenue Streams Over Managed and Unmanaged Networks

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - April 5, 2011) - NAB 2011 -- Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, will be sharing its broader vision of the vital role revenue security will play as pay-TV operators upgrade their networks to add expanded services at NAB 2011. On the heels of its acquisition of the German DVB conditional access (CA) company, Comvenient, the combined team will discuss how offering a multi-network, multi-device security architecture can help position network operators for the next phase of their growth. Specifically, the company will discuss a full range of multi-screen strategies that can accommodate the addition of various types of IP-based service delivery while managing a single content authority platform.

Executives will be available at Verimatrix's booths (SU6207 and SU3024) during NAB 2011, April 11-14, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

He will share his perspective on how traditional digital TV operators can respond to the disruptive force of over-the-top (OTT) video services in the market.
