Verimatrix, a specialist in connected security, has announced that the Cyprus Telecommunications Authority (Cyta) has made the decision to secure its IPTV services with the next-generation capabilities offered by the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) framework.
The VCAS Ultra deployment is the first of its kind in Cyprus, integrating forensic watermarking capabilities to establish a complete, end-to-end security platform. Cyta, a semi-governmental organisation incorporated by law and a key player in the local IPTV market, said it selected the multi-network revenue security solution because it is flexible to deploy and offers smooth scalability for future goals and service growth.
Also included in the VCAS Ultra deployment is session-based, user-specific watermarking. By tracking and enforcing content rights, Verimatrix Watermarking can help Cyta identify piracy at its point of origin.
“Cyta has turned the island of Cyprus into a true telecommunications hub, and we are thrilled to offer our expertise in revenue security through the next stage of its journey,” said Asaf Ashkenazi, COO of Verimatrix. “VCAS Ultra presents an optimised IPTV/OTT security solution that will grow with Cyta as it continues to satisfy the ever-increasing need for innovative and flexible viewing options in the region.”
