As part of plans to reduce integration cycle time for ecosystem partners, content security specialist Verimatrix has chosen S3 Group to manage its partner pre-certification service and provide integration support.
Under the terms of the multi-year, managed service contract, S3 Group will not only take control of the extensive partner pre-integration service, it will also provide integration support for its ViewRight (client security library) and the flagship Video Content Authority System (VCAS) solutions.
At present S3 Group is engaged with streamlining customer deployments of VCAS for DVB, with implementations of ViewRight on Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) enabled set-top boxes (STBs) enabling digital TV operators to have an upgrade path to interactive IP-based networks using a single security authority.
“The timely and smooth integration of our products is a competitive differentiator. We undertook a comprehensive selection process, and chose S3 Group for their domain expertise in working with pay-TV ecosystem partners, including our global system integrators,” commented Verimatrix chief sales and marketing officer Steve Oetegenn.
“They impressed us with the maturity of their system integration toolsets and processes, offering a complete solution to help successfully guide our customers through our stringent certification process. We look forward to expanding our collaboration in the future.”
