Verimatrix Receives Second InfoVision Award at Broadband World Forum Europe 2009

VCAS for DVB Wins for Innovative Unified Content Security for DVB Broadcast; Underscored by Commercial Traction

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - September 11, 2009) - Verimatrix, setting the standard in content security technologies that enhance the value of pay-TV networks, received the 2009 InfoVision Award for its Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS™) for DVB solution in the Content, Entertainment, Applications and Services category. The International Engineering Consortium (IEC) announced the winners on Monday, Sept. 7 at the Broadband World Forum Europe 2009 awards ceremony in Paris.

"The IEC's InfoVision Awards give tribute to the top broadband technologies in deployment today. We're pleased to recognize Verimatrix as a winner for its VCAS for DVB content security solution in the Entertainment, Applications and Services category," commented IEC President John Janowiak.

VCAS for DVB was recognized for enabling the combination of Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) technology and IP-based interactivity to operate under a single security solution. The modern content security solution supports multiple communication network configurations from one head-end, with support for both one- and two-way systems. Its advanced client design incorporates passive, active and adaptive security features making the set-top an elusive and moving target for potential hackers.

In contrast to legacy approaches with a singular focus on hardware-based security, VCAS for DVB offers multi-level client security that can be mixed in the same broadcast network to match set-top box security requirements with different revenue potential. Verimatrix has gained commercial success with DVB operators that recognize the advantages of adding premium video-on-demand (VOD) content to established digital broadcasting, such as Cablemas in Mexico and Green Dot in Trinidad and Tobago.

"This prestigious award reinforces our approach to the DVB market whereby pay TV operators require a unified content security platform to manage broadcast and on-demand content," said Steve Oetegenn, chief sales and marketing officer, Verimatrix. "It is truly an honor to receive the second InfoVision award for our content security solutions."
