Digital media services company Avail-TVN has unveiled AnyView Authentication, its managed service designed to give service providers a quick and easy route to offering TV Everywhere access to high quality, high demand content via programmers’ federated content portals. AnyView Authentication allows service providers to authenticate securely and authorise subscribers to the TV Everywhere portals of major content providers such as Fox, Turner Networks, MTV Networks, ESPN, NBCU and HBO. Avail-TVN has also been approved as a third party vendor for authentication services to NBC’s London 2012 Olympics programming.
Delivered as a managed service, AnyView Authentication includes real-time authentication and authorisation to programmers’ federated TV Everywhere content. AnyView Authentication links directly to portal authentication systems via the OATC and CableLabs Authentication standards where the programmer is using Adobe Pass (the primary security technology for programmers’ federated content), or a proprietary authentication system such as HBO Go. In addition to managing the authentication process, Avail-TVN can manage all billing and support systems integration, provide an API for self-integration, or synchronise to service provider information via automated flat file exchange.
“AnyView Authentication enables service providers of any size the opportunity to quickly get in the game with a TV Everywhere service,” said Laurie Lawrence, chief marketing officer, Avail-TVN. “The service is designed to help them get into multiplatform delivery quickly and easily, without the need for major investments or time-consuming implementation.”
