Verimatrix Highlights New Video Distribution Strategies During the Multi-Network Forum at TV Connect 2013

LONDON--(Marketwire - Mar 7, 2013) - TV Connect -- Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, will have a strong presence at TV Connect 2013, hosting the latest event in its popular Multi-network Solutions in the Real World Forum series; participating as a nominee in multiple categories in the TV Connect Industry Awards; and highlighting advancements in pay-TV revenue security through multiple demonstrations (booth #173). All of these activities underscore the company's commitment to continuing growth and innovation in the
pay-TV industry, helping operators secure new delivery and business models.

The Multi-network Forum, held on 19 March 2013 from 8:00 - 10:00 at the Hilton Olympia Hotel in London, will feature a highly qualified panel of experts to explore the "Operator as an App" market dynamic. Based on global experience and local case study examples, panelists will offer practical guidance on how platform operators can extend their reach to existing subscribers and target new customers with innovative distribution methods. They will also explore the emergence of new over-the-top (OTT) delivery and business models, including 'off net,' 'pay-TV lite' and even OTT-only pay-TV. This Forum event is produced in conjunction with Videonet and will feature speakers from Aertv, Dolby, On Demand Group, Samsung Electronics, and The Travel Channel.
