Verimatrix to secure pay TV apps on Samsung Smart TVs

Content security specialist Verimatrix has announced that it is providing its ViewRight security software to support premium IP and over-the-top video services on Samsung Smart TVs. The solution will target video service apps that pay TV operators build for Samsung Smart TVs.

Samsung Smart TVs and the first compatible apps for Verimatrix protected services will be featured in the TeliaSonera connected TV solution rollout that will debut in certain markets later this year.

“VCAS for Internet TV offers a combination of standards-based delivery support and robust security. Integrating VCAS on our Smart TVs helps us provide our consumers with the seamless Quality of Experience that they demand,” said Duke Hur, vice-president of S/W Platform, Samsung Electronics.

Steve Oetegenn, chief sales and marketing officer at Verimatrix, said, “The demand for Smart TVs is growing exponentially, and increasingly they are the key components of new multi-screen video services for pay TV operators that must meet stringent security requirements. Verimatrix has partnered with Samsung to expand the range of devices compatible with these new secure premium services, while also helping operators extend their service reach using IPTV and OTT delivery.”
