announces that Telefonica del Sur has selected the Verimatrix Video Content Authority 3 solution to secure its IPTV service. Telsur selected VCAS for IPTV as a replacement for its existing conditional access system in order to achieve higher performance, scalability and a wider choice of ecosystem partners. As the global number one in IPTV content protection, VCAS enables the secure delivery of linear TV broadcast and on-demand video services, and offers a solid upgrade platform that Telsur can use to cost-effectively enhance its competitive advantage.
VCAS for IPTV is integrated with Minerva's iTVManager, which provides a comprehensive middleware and service delivery platform for management of compelling video services over broadband networks, including high-definition, pay-per-view, video-on-demand, and digital video recording. The integrated solution is installed on set-top boxes made by Wistron NeWeb Corporation, Amino, a leading IPTV STB manufacturer, and Xavi, developer of the first hybrid IPTV/DVB-C STBs in Latin America.
