Verimatrix Showcases Content Security Solution for DVB and Hybrid Networks at SATCON 2008

Steve Oetegenn Speaks on the Future Role of DRM With Online Content Distribution

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 13, 2008) - SATCON 2008, Booth #601


Verimatrix enhances the value and security of pay-TV networks with advanced software-based technologies designed to address the content protection challenges of today, and those of tomorrow. The Verimatrix 3-Dimensional Content Security approach provides a framework to enhance operator competitiveness and the consumer experience in the new world of pay-TV.


Product Focus:

Setting the Content Security Standard for Broadcast and Hybrid Networks

Verimatrix will illustrate the capabilities of VCAS™ for DVB 2.0, which now incorporates software-based protection for traditional one-way broadcast networks where no direct return path is available. Support for Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) services can be seamlessly offered with the same pay-TV head-end architecture securing IPTV and hybrid networks.

The solution takes full advantage of current generation set-top box system-on-chip platforms to secure receiver devices with no direct return path to the head-end. Operators are able to support existing one-way subscribers while providing a clear upgrade path to capture higher ARPU subscribers who desire more interactive capabilities and video-on-demand (VOD) services.
