Verimatrix Explores Advanced Revenue Security for Hybrid Networks at Connected TV World Summit 2013

Multi-Network Solutions Forum Co-Sponsored With TiVo® Features Experienced Panel of Experts to Discuss Optimizing Hybrid Broadcast/OTT Platforms

LONDON--(Marketwired - May 8, 2013) - Connected TV World Summit 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 the latest event in its popular Multi-network Solutions in the Real World Forum series at Connected TV World Summit 2013, May 22-23, 2013 in London at the Seligman Theatre on the lower ground level of the Royal College of Physicians.

Co-sponsored with TiVo®, the "The Hybrid Platform Operator: The Complete Entertainer" breakfast briefing will debate how pay-TV operators are looking to provide the complete entertainment experience by mastering a hybrid broadcast/over-the-top (OTT) platform. After enjoying breakfast and networking on May 22 at 8 a.m., attendees will learn how to best optimize hybrid broadcast + OTT platforms to provide subscribers with the services they crave. The panel will cover many topics on the subject, including:

  • How linear broadcast/OTT hybrids will shape the satellite, telco, cable and DTT markets and the wider battle against online aggregators and cord cutting;
  • How to ensure consistency of service in terms of content availability, rights windows and usage rules across multiple networks and devices;
  • The benefits of common management and operations for content security and video processing in the multi-network, multi-screen world; and
  • The economics of streaming vs. linear broadcast, and the likely balance of broadcast/OTT provision.

The panel will be moderated by David Mercer, VP, principal analyst, Strategy Analytics and includes experts with real-world experience on the topic from Magyar Telekom, TiVo, Verimatrix, Virgin Media, and Ziggo.

There is no charge to attend this briefing for both delegates and non-delegates to the Connected TV World Summit and the breakfast is also complimentary. However space is limited, so to reserve your spot, please register at

Steve Christian, vice president of marketing, will also participate in a panel on "The Likely Role and Challenges for 'Operator as an App'" on May 23, 2013 at 10 a.m. in the main conference room. During the session, panelists from Advanced Digital Broadcast, BT, Deutsche Telekom, Swisscom and Verimatrix will explore the 'operator as an app' concept and discuss the key advantages/disadvantages of developing services for 'app' models.
