Taking a step towards its strategy to deliver content through every network via an over-the-top (OTT) service, Uruguay's TCC has chosen tools from Verimatrix to secure its revenues no matter what platform or device.

According a case study published by Verimatrix, TCC has been shifting its focus from being a network operator to pioneering service innovation in content distribution, thus needing to deploy an OTT platform which can run on every network.

"Verimatrix helps us achieve this vision by providing us with the revenue security solutions we need to protect both our current multiscreen offering, and any additional services or applications we add in the future. VCAS provides us with the flexibility and scalability that our business demands," pointed out Javier Ruete, CEO at TCC.

"The DVB + OTT hybrid combination allows us to integrate very precise TV guide search engines that give users the freedom to access their favourite content not having to worry about the content source: lineal (DVB) or on-demand (OTT). The system also incorporates the business rules of each specific content provider: free or premium," explained Ruete.

"As pay-TV in Latin America continues to boom, and hybrid network configurations become increasingly popular, the need for multi-network revenue security has never been greater," added Steve Oetegenn, president of Verimatrix.

Through the new platform, TCC has achieved the integration of linear channels with operator video-on-demand (VOD) and OTT services, while ensuring the highest level of content and revenue security, with Verimatrix and its video content authority system (VCAS) as the single security provider.
