Accedo and Verimatrix accelerate OTT service delivery

September 3, 2012

Accedo, an enabler of Smart TV and IPTV applications, has extended its partnership with security specialist Verimatrix to help enable the delivery of engaging OTT video applications with secure TV apps now available on Samsung Smart TVs.

The Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) for Internet TV, which provides a complete digital TV security solution for OTT services, has been integrated with Accedo’s application solutions to deliver OTT video services that optimise adaptive rate streaming protocols and meet the necessary security requirements for premium content. The Samsung Smart TVs joins a wide range of mobile devices and LG Smart TVs that feature the joint solution.

“We are witnessing a growing trend for OTT video services, which offer a wealth of opportunity for operators to enrich their offering, but security is increasingly a key factor,” commented Michael Lantz, CEO, Accedo. “This joint solution will enable operators to deliver good quality and secure multi-screen services for Smart TV and other connected devices globally.”
