A new white paper by Frost & Sullivan details research on CAPEX, OPEX, and opportunity costs of in-house vs. outsourced DRM strategies. They discovered some alarming discrepancies between the beliefs influencing operators’ decision making, and the facts as represented by the data.
Several key messages emerged from the recent BTR Hangout discussion, including a fast-growing consensus that UHD had become so much more than just 4K, which is now taken just to describe the higher 2160 x 3840 pixel resolution.
Protecting customer information is not just about protecting the customer, but also protecting the operators' investments in video analytics data. Any security breach reduces customer trust in their video service provider.
Petr Peterka, CTO, talks to DTVE about DRM requirements for OTT video and how to evaluate total cost of ownership for multi-DRM. Plus, he comments on Hollywood's current stance on watermarking for UHD.
Brett Sappington of Parks Associates gives his personal key impressions on their recent research to gauge the anxiety level and philosophy of securing video data – especially as security breaches continue to grab headlines.
Did you miss the second webinar in our series on video analytics? No worries – you can watch it on-demand at your convenience. Brett Sappington and Verimatrix's Sebastian Braun cover current operator perceptions, use cases and vulnerabilities of data collection, and different approaches to building a secure analytics platform.
It is well known that security breaches cause much less revenue loss or reputational damage if they are caught early. They are simply cheaper to fix at that stage. Steve Christian discusses the benefits of proactive security system monitoring.
Steve Christian adds his insights to the total cost of ownership argument with multi-DRM systems. "There is a limited understanding of the true levels of cost and complexity associated with a do-it-yourself approach to DRM."
History shows that threats to revenue streams for service operators must be countered by solutions that take a holistic approach to the broad challenges of revenue security. For effective protection of UHD content, our President Steve Oetegenn argues that watermarking is no different.
