Verimatrix Leads Stellar Panel Debate on Three-Screen Opportunities at Broadband World Forum Asia 2008

Steve Oetegenn Moderates Panel With Industry Leaders Discussing DRM as a Business Enabler

HONG KONG--(Marketwire - July 8, 2008) -


WHO:

Verimatrix enhances the value and security of pay-TV networks with advanced technologies designed to address the content protection challenges of today, and those of tomorrow. Steve Oetegenn, chief sales and marketing officer, has 25 years of industry experience. He has specialized in digital security and anti-piracy since 1998, working with government agencies, Fortune 500 companies and major Hollywood studios.

WHAT:

"The Softer Side of DRM: Enabling Three-Screen Entertainment." Pay-TV operators increasingly realize that it is not enough to target the TV alone as a medium for their content services. Hence the PC has followed as a second screen, with mobile devices as a natural progression to a third. This poses content security challenges that go far beyond those that pay-TV operators have traditionally considered.

Oetegenn will lead the panel discussion on the latest content security technologies along with an overview of existing and potentially future delivery business models that content security can ultimately help enable.

Panelists include representatives from IOL Netcom, France Telecom Group, Motorola, Intertrust and the Centre for Content Protection, Asia Pacific.

WHEN:

Friday, 18 July, 2008 at 9:00 a.m.

WHERE:

Broadband World Forum Asia 2008, Hong Kong Convention Center
