Verimatrix, a provider of content security technologies, has announced that Smart Telecom has selected the company to secure its advanced interactive and video-on-demand service in Ireland, called Smart Vision.
The Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) enables Smart Telecom to deliver secure, premium content throughout its digital video network.
VCAS uses advanced cryptographic and e-commerce technologies proven on the Internet, including PKI and X.509 certificates, enabling a substantially higher level of content security than traditional smart card based systems. The company has recently been ranked the global leader in IPTV content security by two independent analyst firms, MRG and TelecomView.
Tom Munro, CEO of Verimatrix, said: IPTV is and continues to be a highly competitive market and operators are under immense pressure to be able to differentiate themselves against competitors. Being able to provide a unique user experience has become a necessity and we our proud to be working with a leading operator that is dedicated to offer an enhanced entertainment experience for consumers.
