Verimatrix Showcases Revenue Security Convergence Across Major Pay TV Trends at IBC 2016

Executives Emphasize How Comprehensive Approach to Security Enhances and Monetizes Video Delivery

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS--(Marketwired - Aug 22, 2016) - IBC 2016 (Booth #5.A59) - Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, will illustrate how security solutions are at the core of all key monetization strategies for the pay-TV and Internet video service markets at IBC 2016, 9-13 Sept. 2016 at the RAI Convention Centre (booth #5.A59). Throughout the show, the company will highlight its role in revenue enablement and protection across major industry trends, including premium ultra HD (UHD) deployments, app enablement for over-the-top (OTT) video, high-integrity video analytics and the extension into Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

"Becoming a next-generation video operator involves raising the bar across a range of key service dimensions that involve security. Our expertise in the secure delivery of video to any device over any network against any threat has made our role within the partner ecosystem very valuable for operators to more easily take advantage of these opportunities," said Tom Munro, CEO of Verimatrix. "At IBC, we look forward to reinforcing the benefits of a comprehensive revenue security platform at the core of any next-generation video services deployment."

Booth demonstrations will showcase how Verimatrix can enhance revenue security by taking more proactive approaches to combat revenue threats and identify emerging opportunities that can further monetize their business. Highlighted solutions and services include:

Verspective™ Operator Analytics
As a follow up to the launch of Verspective™ Operator Analytics, Verimatrix will be announcing the availability of a "quick start" evaluation package designed to help operators quickly realize the full potential of their video data and the benefits for multiple departments across the organization. The Verspective Analytics solution will also be on display at the booth, demonstrated alongside key partners Genius Digital and ThinkAnalytics, to show the power of combining different sources of video data including CDN, VOD and linear streams. Verspective Operator Analytics has been shortlisted for the 2016 CSI Awards in the Best data & analytics innovation category

VCAS Ultra™
The Verimatrix VCAS Ultra solution has been bolstered by additional features within the core offering, including the integration of the VideoMark™ live profile, which will be demonstrated at the booth. A complement to established forensic watermarking methods, the VideoMark live profile is specifically designed to protect valuable live linear content against real-time re-broadcasting threats. It can be combined with the content discovery and video capture technologies from Friend MTS to provide powerful automation in the rebroadcasting control process. This latest version of the VideoMark solution has also been shortlisted in the 2016 CSI Award program for the Best ultra HD TV technology category.

In addition, Verimatrix is now offering Verspective Monitoring services as part of the VCAS Ultra bundle. Verspective Monitoring provides a local, cloud-based system for operators to proactively monitor its VCAS system for threat analysis, performance, resource usage, and network integrity.

MultiRights™ OTT
As the functionality of OTT delivery platforms evolves, the solution has gained traction from operators and online video publishers (OVPs) evaluating their multi-DRM options, seeking the freedom to choose the right security approach across all devices.

In a recently developed white paper, Frost & Sullivan analyzes the true costs and complexities of building in-house multi-DRM programs and compares them to implementing preconfigured solutions like MultiRights. Copies of "Total Cost of Ownership: The Key Metric for Multi-DRM Strategy" and more information about an upcoming webinar on this topic will be available at the booth.

IoT Security
Members of the Verimatrix executive team will also be on hand to discuss the findings from "Selecting the Right Partner for Securing the Internet of Things," a brand-new white paper developed with ABI Research that highlights the parallels of securing IoT applications with video delivery content.

Verimatrix is also supporting a number of key industry events during the show:
