DetailsMichelle Clancy | 08 May 2015

IneoQuest Technologies and Verimatrix are partnering on monitoring for over-the-top (OTT) and multiscreen video services.

IneoQuest has integrated the Verimatrix ViewRight Web security client into the latest release of its adaptive bitrate (ABR) video monitoring probe, IQDialogue ASM, expanding its monitoring capabilities to the digital realm.

The deal gives IneoQuest the ability test, monitor and validate the quality of conditional access (CA) and digital rights management (DRM)-protected video streams in a multi-screen/OTT environment. Authenticated IQDialogue devices are able to receive, decrypt and validate ABR video streams protected by the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) for Internet TV security solution. The implementation also provides quality of experience (QoE) monitoring to compare asset performance throughout the content delivery network (CDN) infrastructure.

"As we searched for ways to simplify the quality verification of protected content for our customers, collaboration with an industry leader was an obvious imperative," said Calvin Harrison, president and CEO at IneoQuest. "Verimatrix quickly landed on the top of our collaborator list. Verimatrix places a high priority on consistent service quality, and we applaud their efforts to ensure optimum customer experience while also ensuring revenue security. We are excited about this partnership's potential to improve the viewer experience of protected, CDN-delivered video."
