SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 23, 2014) - Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, today announced that the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS™) for Broadcast-Hybrid has been named a winner in the Light Reading 2014 Leading Lights awards program in the Best New Product (Cable) category. VCAS for Broadcast-Hybrid was honored for its proven ability to provide enhanced pay-TV revenue security while also ensuring harmonized rights management for consumers viewing content inside and outside the home.

The Leading Lights program, the telecom industry's most prestigious awards program, focuses on next-generation communications technologies, applications, services, and strategies. It rewards the companies that have performed well during the past year. The Leading Lights winners were announced at an awards dinner in Chicago on Tuesday, June 17, to coincide with the Big Telecom Event. Judging was conducted by Light Reading's editors and the analyst team from Heavy Reading.

VCAS for Broadcast-Hybrid is a cardless revenue security solution that draws on the strengths of the global number one VCAS for IPTV, and the highly successful VCAS for Internet TV, to better enable combinations of RF and multicast linear delivery with advanced adaptive bitrate streaming video services, while ensuring harmonized rights management for subscribers both at home and while on the go.

The multi-network solution combines efficient and secure linear service delivery over RF networks with modern server-side, two-way key management, and fully leverages enhanced HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) security for catch-up/on-demand and unicast linear services to hybrid STBs, mobile devices and smart TVs.

 "Life on the competitive frontier of video services today requires agility, technical prowess and extreme leverage of available technical and commercial resources," said Steve Oetegenn, president, Verimatrix. "VCAS for Broadcast-Hybrid offers operators a compelling software-centric video service security system to propel operators beyond the current limitations of their physical resources and enable them to better respond to new standards, new opportunities and the changing market dynamic. Winning a Leading Lights Awards validates our commitment to continually providing our customers with robust and innovative solutions that enhance revenue security."

"The standard of the entries in all 16 Leading Lights categories this year was exceptionally high, so the winners have really had to prove themselves worthy with great submissions that have been able to stand up to thorough scrutiny. A Leading Lights award is a true mark of excellence," said Ray Le Maistre, editor-in-chief, Light Reading.
