From Colin Mann at IP&TV World Forum

Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, has announced that Serbia Broadband (SBB), a Serbian cable TV and broadband Internet provider, and Telemach, a Slovenian and Bosnian cable TV and broadband Internet provider, have deployed the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) for Internet TV platform, to fuel new OTT video services and provide enhanced revenue security.

SBB and Telemach’s expanded OTT services are based on the HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) standard delivery protocol, and features streaming over SBB and Telemach networks. HLS has been integrated on three different client platforms to date, including Android, PC/Mac  and iOS with set-top boxes (STB) expected to be ready in the near future to support the launch of 60 live channels, 40 catch-up TV channels, and video-on-demand (VoD) content.  The service is currently available to the customers of SBB and Telemach, but this integrated solution will also enable these operators to offer their programming to communities outside their traditional cable footprint.
