Verimatrix announces that TeliaSonera has deployed the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System for IPTV for the tier one telecommunications operator's successful IPTV services in the Nordic region, Estonia and Lithuania. Telia Digital-TV, which was one of the first IPTV services in Europe to launch in 2005, offers subscribers compelling new programming packages that include 70 channels such as Discovery and the Disney Channel and a 24-hour on-demand library of movies.
Janne Yli-Äyhö, senior vice president and head of TV, Content and Digital Home, TeliaSonera, commented, "We needed a content security solution that we could install quickly and cost-effectively, and given our rapidly-growing subscriber base, it had to have proven scalability. There's no question Verimatrix can deliver iron-clad security for our broadcast and on-demand content. Plus, we were impressed with their ease of integration with our existing platform components."
