As the recognized leader in cardless revenue security solutions for progressive digital TV service providers, the company has leveraged its innovative 3-Dimensional Security approach to provide a harmonized rights platform for premium content delivery to a range of devices over new broadcast and IP hybrid network combinations. The Verimatrix approach offers flexible layers of protection techniques to address evolving business needs and revenue threats. The Verimatrix 3-Dimensional Security strategy addresses key technology issues facing operators with a combination of:
- Network dimension – Best of breed encryption and harmonized multi-network rights management for the widest range of delivery networks, including broadcast satellite, cable and terrestrial, IPTV and hybrid, video-on-demand (VOD), mobile, Internet TV and OTT services.
- Device dimension – Beyond the living room to computers and on-the-go applications. The technology approach includes a hardened, downloadable Verimatrix ViewRight ONE™ security core for set-top boxes (STBs), PCs and Macs, as well as off-the-shelf consumer electronics including iOS and Android devices using HTTP adaptive rate streaming.
- Threat dimension – Since not all threats to digital TV security look alike, VCAS offers a layered set of tools and techniques to enable a flexible system protection profile. Features such as hardening, fingerprinting, watermarking and clone detection help operators address potential revenue loss from theft of service while rapid renewability provides a fast countermeasure capability.
