Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, has announced that TrueVision Plc has selected the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) architecture to provide revenue security for its premium content service offerings. TrueVision is Thailand’s largest cable television provider.
VCAS for Internet TV was deployed to protect the TrueVision Anywhere, True Movie, and H Movie service offerings. The services are delivered via a hybrid network comprised of both broadcast/linear and over-the-top (OTT) components using a single digital rights management (DRM) head-end. The head-end is shared by multiple TrueVision companies, each providing their own pay-TV services. Such an approach ensures a unified and consistent subscriber user experience (UX).
The services can be accessed through a multitude of devices, including iOS and Android tablets and phones, a USB/HDMI Android dongle, as well as Macs and PCs. The Goldenduck Group (GDG), a leading visual and audio cinema and broadcast system integrator in Southeast Asia, served as the systems integrator for the project, and NXP Software provided the player.
“The reputation of VCAS in the market was one of the leading reasons we chose to partner with Verimatrix on this project,” said Ms. Nantanee Wongumnitkul, director of business development, True Vision Cable Public Company Limited. “Collaborating with Verimatrix provided us with access to a studio-trusted revenue security solution that will support our quest to provide our subscribers with the content they crave within a seamless brand experience across platforms.”
“TrueVision’s unique deployment highlights the many advantages of taking a unified approach to revenue security,” said Steve Oetegenn, chief sales and marketing officer, Verimatrix.“We are delighted to have partnered with TrueVision on this important project, as it underscores the importance of having a robust multi-screen strategy to create a truly integrated consumer experience, which can be a critical competitive differentiator.”
VCAS for Internet TV provides a complete digital TV security solution for OTT services over multiple networks.

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.
