Verimatrix Remains Commanding Global Leader of IPTV Content Protection; Increases Market Share
We are very proud to report that we have maintained our global number one position in MRG’s latest IPTV Market Leader Report. MRG also reports an increased market share for Verimatrix of six points to 31% when compared to the Fall report. Since 2006, we have held that spot as the leading software-based content security for global IPTV deployments, which is a noteworthy feat since so much has changed in the IPTV landscape since that time. In the current wave of market consolidation, Verimatrix is now the only the independent player in the software CA/DRM market. We feel our continued market share is significant as it proves we are able to maintain our focus in IPTV while expanding our solutions into other markets. It’s interesting to go back and read our first announcement in 2006. That report tracked 470 IPTV service providers and about 60 different IPTV vendors. Fast forward to this latest report. It tracked 913 IPTV operators and the top 120 IPTV vendors, which were broken down into in 24 sub-sectors. The numbers have nearly doubled in five years! With this report, MRG has also introduced its RankTracker system that allows the monitoring of the movements of IPTV ecosystem vendors compared to previous reports. It is easy to track how the regional and global rankings have changed over the course of time. With this feature, you’ll find that we have moved up to 2nd place in North America!
