Smart TV and IPTV applications provider Accedo and content security expert Verimatrix have extended their partnership to enable the delivery of over-the-top (OTT) video applications with secure TV apps on Samsung Smart TVs.

At the heart of the partnership is the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) for Internet TV, which has been integrated with Accedo’s application solutions in order to deliver OTT video services which are designed to optimise adaptive rate streaming protocols and meet premium content providers’ security requirements.

“We are witnessing a growing trend for OTT video services, which offer a wealth of opportunity for operators to enrich their offering, but security is increasingly a key factor,” explained Michael Lantz, CEO, Accedo. “This joint solution will enable operators to deliver good quality and secure multi-screen services for Smart TV and other connected devices globally.”
