Thomson and Verimatrix integrate OTT delivery and rights management

Thomson Video Networks and Verimatrix have integrated a solution for high-quality delivery of over-the-top services with secure content protection and rights management.

The companies have combined Thomson’s ViBE VS7000 platform with the Verimatrix VCAS for Internet TV security solution. The ViBE VS7000 Convergent Video System delivers video at a variety of bit rates using adaptive bit rate encoding technology, and can stream content to smartphones, tablets, computers, set-top boxes and connected TVs. The Verimatrix VCAS solution provides secure management of the digital rights associated with the content. The two systems are interoperable and are being deployed in combination to deliver HDTV OTT channels in Asia.

“The combined products make the solution easy to deploy and risk-free for the customer,” said Eric Gallier, vice president of marketing, Thomson Video Networks. “Verimatrix is a leader in developing and deploying such solutions, so it’s a very natural partner for Thomson Video Networks, and this is an extension of the partnership we have had in the past related to IPTV telecom systems.”
