AMSTERDAM, Sept. 18, 2017 - IBC 2017 (Booth #5.A59) – Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for network-connected devices, today announced that Dish TV India Limited has selected Verimatrix to provide cardless security for its direct-to-home (DTH) service offerings. DishTV is Asia's largest DTH video service provider and is the only DTH operator to operate through three satellites in space. The Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS™) for DVB was selected as one of its critical CAS partners for its future-proof approach to revenue security that can scale with the company as it continues to evolve business models and maintains its position as a market leader.
"Our infrastructural and technological edge allows us to continually develop new innovations and revolutionize our service offerings, so it has become crucial that our revenue security measures are robust yet flexible enough to keep pace," said Mr. V K Gupta, COO at DishTV.
Based on a single content authority approach, VCAS for DVB offers a modern approach to multi-device streaming as video service providers like DishTV redefine their pay-TV services. The solution is completely compliant to applicable DVB standards and pre-integrated with a broad range of partner headend and software systems. Additionally, its cardless set-top box client technology provides new, essential levels of security that would be virtually impossible to achieve with legacy systems.
"We are thrilled to support Asia's largest DTH provider as it continues to enhance its offerings and maintains its stance apart from competition in the region," said Steve Oetegenn, president of Verimatrix. "Dish TV has long-established itself as the pioneer in the Indian DTH broadcast industry, and VCAS for DVB is optimally designed to adapt to any scenario it may face as the Indian pay-TV industry continues to undergo rapid transformation. In essence, the security framework will never become obsolete."
Verimatrix will illustrate how security solutions are at the core of all key monetization strategies for the pay-TV and Internet video service at IBC 2017 (booth #5.A59). For additional information or to book an appointment with the team please visit www.verimatrix.com/ibc2017.
