Verimatrix Addresses Digital TV Conditional Access Transition Needs With Strategic CAS Migration ServicesProven Approach Helps Operators Navigate Business and Technology Challenges When Upgrading to Next-Generation Security Platforms (February 23, 2011)
SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/23/11 -- Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, is pleased to offer its conditional access system (CAS) Migration services for digital TV operators that are re-evaluating or expanding their existing security platform and considering a transition to modern and more flexible architectures. Increasingly, as operators want to take advantage of multi-screen video services, they must ensure that the appropriate security and digital rights management (DRM) solutions are in place for devices both inside and outside of the operator's managed network. Verimatrix has consistently demonstrated its ability to migrate legacy smart card systems to an IP-centric security platform without disrupting current services.
Representatives from Verimatrix will be on hand to discuss its CAS Migration services further at Andina Link 2011, Feb. 22-24 in Cartagena, Colombia.
"Operators are experiencing numerous 'trigger points' that provide the impetus to implement a more advanced security platform, such as an MPEG-2 to MPEG-4 transition and rolling out hybrid IP technology for hybrid network and OTT services," said Steve Oetegenn, chief sales and marketing officer. "Based on our security migration experience, we have honed our strategy and methodology to truly help operators make the most-informed business and technical decisions to select the upgrade path that is best for them."
The Verimatrix CAS Migration service is designed to guide digital TV operators in their evaluation of security system changes and the challenges faced in rolling out a system upgrade. This is often the case when the revenue secured by a legacy CAS has been compromised due to piracy, or when an operator wants to extend services beyond traditional set-top boxes (STBs) to PCs and Macs, smart phones and web tablets, etc., which the legacy system is unable to support.
By considering the broader implications of the infrastructure ecosystem, particularly with the head-end and installed population of STBs, Verimatrix's process addresses a unique set of complex issues to help service providers better understand their and transition options. Each security transition path is intended to minimize costs without sacrificing their ability to meet service requirements over the long term.
