Cubiware has integrated the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) with Cubiware’s CubiTV hybrid middleware for STBs.
By integrating VCAS with CubiTV, Cubiware offers pay-TV operators the option of an approach to content and revenue security using a software-based, IP-centric security architecture with broadcast-hybrid support. VCAS, which offers cardless security across a broad spectrum of client devices, is now available for CubiTV deployments in DVB-Hybrid applications.
DVB-Hybrid content delivery unifies broadcast TV with state-of-the-art adaptive bitrate streaming video, while also enabling multiscreen OTT delivery for iOS and Android tablets and smartphones. The integration work completed by the two companies enables the entire ecosystem to be deployed within weeks. Verimatrix is the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi- network, multi-screen digital TV services around the globe.
While VCAS and CubiTV together provide an integrated solution, they remain distinct systems, allowing operators the flexibility to choose middleware and security platforms independently based on their individual requirements.
“Pay-TV operators need easy-to-deploy solutions that offer no-compromise, state-of-the-art functionality but at the same time are cost-effective and use minimal STB resources,” said Jakub Górski, CEO of Cubiware.
“Given that both Cubiware and Verimatrix are focused on meeting that need, it’s great that we’ve been able to work together to make our systems as easy as possible to deploy side-by-side in the field. With this integration effort we’ve enhanced the value of our individual platforms by ensuring that they perform together seamlessly in real-world operations.”
“Competitive pay-TV operators are recognizing that delivering linear and on-demand services
to broadcast-hybrid receivers is critical to success,” added Steve Oetegenn, president, Verimatrix.
“By handling the integration work in advance, we’ve made it that much easier for operators to get up-and-running with the advanced hybrid network functionalities they need to serve both present and future subscribers.”
