Three technology companies, RGB Networks, Verimatrix and itaas, have joined forces to develop a solution for streaming video to mobile devices.
itaas serves as the prime contractor contributing its team of network architects and product testing capabilities as well as a client side solution for viewing content on a mobile device. itaas’ network architects will assess a service provider’s existing video delivery infrastructure and then work with RGB Networks, Verimatrix and content delivery network providers to design and implement a TV Everywhere.
RGB Networks provides its Video Multiprocessing Gateway (VMG) transcoding platform as well as protocol adaptation with its TransAct Packager, which works in coordination with DRM and encryption from Verimatrix. RGB’s Packager supports the three main adaptive streaming formats – HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS), and Smooth Streaming.
Verimatrix’s VCAS for Internet TV provides a digital TV security solution for over-the-top services on networks implementing the HLS protocol, which includes security extensions to support subscription and transaction-based revenue models. Verimatrix can also provide support for third-party DRM systems such as Verimatrix MultiRights for PlayReady DRM.
