announces that Serbia Broadband and Telemach have deployed the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System for Internet TV platform, to fuel new over-the-top video services and provide enhanced revenue security.
SBB and Telemach's expanded OTT services are based on the HTTP Live Streaming standard delivery protocol, and features streaming over SBB and Telemach networks. HLS has been integrated on three different client platforms to date, including Android, PC/Mac and iOS with set-top boxes expected to be ready in the near future to support the launch of 60 live channels, 40 catch-up TV channels, and video-on-demand content. The service is currently available to the customers of SBB and Telemach, but this integrated solution will also enable these operators to offer their programming to communities outside their traditional cable footprint.
VCAS for Internet TV has been seamlessly integrated with NXP's LifeVibes QuickPlayer software, which allows SBB's and Telemach's subscribers to access living-room quality audio and video across a wide range of Android tablets and smartphones. The overall presentation solution is based on Belgian interactive TV developer Zappware's user interface application framework. Zappware also acted as the system integrator for the project. Video solutions and service infrastructure provider Anevia provided the origin server with encryption workflow.
VCAS for Internet TV, a key option powered by the VCAS 3 platform, provides a complete digital TV security solution for OTT services over networks implementing HLS. Featuring multi-format support, VCAS for Internet TV secures OTT services to multiple screens and across multiple network types, including both broadcast (linear) and VoD delivery modes.
