Thomson’s ViBE VS7000 compatible with KeyOS DRM

Thomson Video Networks and content security specialist BuyDRM have announced that the ViBE VS7000 multiscreen video platform is now fully compatible with the KeyOS DRM. The Thomson ViBE VS7000 multiscreen video encoder delivers video quality at different bit-rates using adaptive bit-rate encoding technology to stream content to various devices, including smartphones, tablets and PCs, and also to set-top boxes and directly to Smart TVs. Thomson said the ViBE VS7000 with KeyOS extends the convenience and versatility of the platform for the rapid deployment of web TV and OTT services.

“Both Thomson Video Networks and BuyDRM are in a key position to make it easy for customers to deploy high-end television services to large screens in the home and mobile devices using OTT technologies,” said Christopher Levy, CEO, BuyDRM. “BuyDRM is a leader in developing and deploying advanced DRM solutions, so this partnership with Thomson Video Networks is very beneficial for the growth of the OTT market.”

“The live and off-line encoding performance of the ViBE VS7000 is such that the quality of experience for OTT services is very close or equal to what a user can expect from a traditional pay TV delivery platform such as satellite, terrestrial, or cable,” said Eric Gallier, vice-president of marketing, Thomson Video Networks. “The better the quality, the more vital it is for operators to protect content rights for their web TV services, preventing illegal access and copying, just as they do with traditional broadcast platforms. The KeyOS system is an outstanding technology for achieving this.”

Thomson Video Networks will be exhibiting at IBC on Stand 14.A10.
