Steve Oetegenn, chief sales and marketing officer, will be presenting a session on "Transforming OTT Services into Successful Revenue Streams," on Thursday, March 10 at 11:00 a.m. During his presentation, which is part of the broader "Adding the Third Dimension: New Business Models in Content Creation and Delivery" session, Oetegenn will discuss the new business models and opportunities that are possible when using advanced delivery technologies, such as the HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) standard protocol for secure adaptive rate streaming video. He will present how these technologies can be leveraged with traditional subscription-based services for incremental revenue generation and business expansion.

In addition, Verimatrix will be highlighting the following solutions in its booth:

VCAS™ for DVB -- Digital TV operators can combine standards-based DVB technology for broadcast distribution with the interactivity of IP-based networks using a single robust security solution. In contrast to legacy approaches, Verimatrix offers advanced cardless client security options that can be mixed with traditional STBs and hybrid clients in the broadcast network to enable a range of service options. To illustrate this, the company will be demonstrating a DVB-C hybrid implementation at the event.

VCAS™ for Internet TV -- As a core component of VCAS 3, VCAS for Internet TV provides a complete digital TV security solution for OTT services over networks implementing the HTTP Live Streaming protocol. Featuring multi-format support, VCAS for Internet TV secures OTT services to multiple screens and across multiple transports, including both broadcast (linear) and video-on-demand (VOD) delivery modes.
