Enhanced Content Security for HTTP Live Streaming
Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS™) for Internet TV provides complete end-to-end pay-TV security for over-the-top (OTT) services, including both broadcast (linear) and video-on-demand (VoD) delivery modes. VCAS for Internet TV may be supplied either as a standalone solution for OTT services, or as part of a VCAS multi-screen, multi-network revenue security deployment.
The Verimatrix ViewRight Web client is a robust package of portable code that implements the VCAS content security functions in CE devices enabled for HTTP Live Streaming (HLS, a.k.a. adaptive rate streaming) video services. These functions constitute important Verimatrix pay-TV enhancements to the baseline HLS protocol. They include end-user device authentication and entitlement verification, thereby making the total solution suitable for premium OTT services.
ViewRight Web is an integral component of the VCAS for Internet TV solution, securing video delivery over networks implementing the HLS protocol. The core protocol provides automatic bit-rate adaptation to allow a common video stream URL to be shared between devices that have different screen resolutions, processing power and available network bandwidth. This ensures the best possible viewing experience for any given combination of these parameters, even when devices roam between networks.
ViewRight Web clients provide cross-platform support for secure OTT content delivery services to a variety of device categories:
- ViewRight Web for PC (Windows OS) and Mac OS
- ViewRight Web for iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch)
- ViewRight Web for Android OS
- ViewRight Web for STB
ViewRight Web has been interoperability tested with a range of leading encoder and web server suppliers, e.g. Envivio, Harmonic, Inlet/Cisco, Vidiator, Allegro, Anevia and Edgeware.
