SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 23, 2013) - Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, today announced that VCAS™ for DASH, the world's first commercial-grade MPEG-DASH secure delivery solution, was selected as the best content security product of the year at ConnectedWorld.TV Awards ceremony during IBC 2013 in Amsterdam.
VCAS for DASH, a key component within the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS™), was recognized in part for its ability to extend the range of services and device types that can be supported in this harmonized rights management platform. Leveraging a proven authentication and entitlement architecture, VCAS for DASH is also compliant with the ISO/IEC Common Encryption (CENC) standard. The solution offers operators an effective upgrade path from today's de-facto adaptive rate streaming systems to support of new DASH compliant delivery, while avoiding costly re-integration in both head-end and client-side components.
"We received several compelling nominations in the content security product category this year," said Will Garside, editor of IBE magazine and chair of judges for the ConnectedWorld.TV Awards. "VCAS for DASH stood out from the other entries because of its ability to tackle the thorny issue of managing DRM for content shared across multiple devices."
Organized by BPL Broadcast, the ConnectedWorld.TV Awards celebrate the exciting developments in television and video at the intersection of broadcast and the internet. The awards honor creative broadcasters as well as innovative technology companies and consumer electronics manufacturers.
"We are honored to receive a prestigious ConnectedWorld.TV Award," said Steve Oetegenn, chief sales and marketing officer, Verimatrix. "Receiving this award underscores our overall position of security leadership in the post-smartcard era, and our work with key partners to make the transition to DASH streaming services a commercial reality."
