Verimatrix and Ocilion announce partnership for Austria

DTV content security company Verimatrix and IPTV technology company Ocilion have announced two large Austrian operators as their latest customers.

Salzburg AG and kabelplus have each selected on-premise IPTV solutions from Ocilion that are secured by Verimatrix.

Both operators have opted independently for on-premise deployments hosted in their distinctive infrastructures, optimally suiting larger volumes of subscribers using Ocilion’s new homogenous P400 family of 4K set-top boxes (STBs), which combines innovation, design, functionality and efficiency. The advanced and adaptable technology offers the flexibility needed to support various delivery models, whether hybrid, FTTH or OTT, while the integrated Verimatrix client supports digital rights management (DRM) for IP, IP/DVB-C and OTT.

“kabelplus and Salzburg AG came to us with unique challenges and needs that will grow and evolve as consumer demands and security requirements continue to rapidly shift,” said Hans Kühberger, CEO of Ocilion. “We are very pleased to fulfil their demands for increasingly sophisticated modern and high-end IPTV services with our future-proof on-premise solution, including our new P400 family and resolve complex security requirements in partnership with Verimatrix.”

Verimatrix COO Steve Oetegenn said: “Achieving Ultra Security certification means that Ocilion’s advanced STBs are trusted to deliver premium content to kabelplus and Salzburg AG consumers at the highest quality possible and in accordance with the strongest security requirements specified by premium rights holders.

“Ultimately, the combined strengths of Ocilion and Verimatrix presents a formidable barrier against piracy in a form that can be updated readily to ensure these operators are able to keep pace with the evolving threat landscape.”
