Verimatrix Helps Progressive African Pay-TV Operators Navigate Transition to Secure Digital Broadcast and Hybrid Services

Strong Presence at Upcoming Shows Highlights Importance of Multi-Network Revenue Security Solutions for Africa's New Digital Networks

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 16, 2015) - Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, will be featuring speakers at two upcoming tradeshows for African pay-TV operators: Commonwealth Digital Broadcasting Switchover Forum, Feb. 17-19, 2015 in Johannesburg, and ARENA 2015, Mar. 3-4, 2015 in Ghana. During the events, Verimatrix will update attendees on the status of revenue security solutions tailored for Africa's TV digitalisation roll-out.

During the Commonwealth Digital Broadcasting Switchover Forum, François Hernandez, Sales Director, ME & Sub Saharan Africa, will present a session on "Conquering Multi-network Complexity with a Single Security Authority" on Tuesday, Feb.17 at noon. During the session, Hernandez will highlight what Africa's broadcasters and pay-TV operators should consider when cost-effectively extending their services across multiple networks.

In addition, Geir Bjørndal, VP Sales Middle East and Africa, Verimatrix, will present a keynote address at ARENA 2015 on "Securing Content in a Digital World." Bjørndal will explain the steps that need to be taken and shares lessons learnt from successful pay-TV deployments in the African region.

At both events, Verimatrix will also highlight the advantages of an advanced cardless security approach when compared with legacy smart card solutions. Deploying an optimized, cardless revenue security solution such as the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS™) for DVB-Hybrid can save costs and enhance revenues as operators digitise TV and video services. Experts from Verimatrix will also be available to share how the new VCAS Ultra™ solution offers pay-TV operators an agile multi-network revenue security approach with the flexibility and scalability required to meet their future goals for growth.
