TVB.COM, a member of Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB), has selected the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) architecture to provide revenue security for its subscription-based VOD (SVOD) service, GOTV. TVB is Hong Kong's largest independent television broadcaster.

Kenneth Wong, chief operating officer, TVB.COM, said: “TVB.COM is committed to providing its subscribers with access to the content they crave with the best user experience. In order to protect TVB’s valuable video assets, it was imperative that we had a robust security strategy in place. Verimatrix offers us the technology, support and expertise we need to protect and optimise our service offering with premium content.”

VCAS for Internet TV provides a complete digital TV security solution for OTT services over multiple networks. Featuring enhanced HLS security, VCAS for Internet TV secures pay-OTT services to multiple screens and across multiple network types, including both broadcast (linear) and VOD delivery modes. Specifically, VCAS for Internet TV provides pay-TV security features otherwise only found in managed DVB and IPTV networks, thus enabling the use of premium content for OTT services.

“Asian operators are rapidly adopting business models featuring pay OTT video services,” said Steve Oetegenn, chief sales and marketing officer, Verimatrix. “Verimatrix stands ready to help these operators implement a comprehensive revenue security strategy that is robust enough to protect premium content, yet flexible enough to support the addition of new devices, services and features in the future.”
