San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 22, 2011
Jaman Networks, a leading supplier of turn-key platforms for premium movies and online video, and Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, today announced a partnership that underscores their common strategy of enabling premium video service delivery using a platform of secure, standards-based adaptive streaming technology. The combination of Jaman Networks’ sophisticated publishing and recommendation engine, together with Verimatrix security, empowers service operators to cast a wider net with their premium video offerings.
Jaman Networks and Verimatrix bring complementary sets of technologies and expertise to bear on the infrastructure required for successful premium video service delivery. Jaman Networks has built a comprehensive content preparation workflow for HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) to create a digital content vault, paired with a sophisticated presentation engine that incorporates an array of user feedback within a leading edge recommendation engine. Verimatrix integrates its Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS™) for Internet TV components within the workflow to secure the keys associated with the encrypted content vault while supporting a wide variety of authenticated client device delivery options using its ViewRight® Web technology.
“We’re in the business of empowering content owners to deliver valuable services to an array of devices so that their content can be monetized anytime, anywhere. We are engaging with service operators who wish to extend the reach of their current offerings and that require a more specialist approach to securing their revenue streams,” said Dan Graham, general manager, Jaman Networks. “Verimatrix is the clear market leader in IP-based video revenue security solutions around the globe and this partnership offers a capability that sets a new quality bar for the evolving OTT industry.”
VCAS for Internet TV enables secure premium content services to a wide range of connected devices, including set-top boxes (STBs), connected TVs, iPhones, iPads and Android tablets. The security solution provides significant value by enhancing the standard HLS encryption mechanisms with options for registering and tracking individual devices, together with a way to manage device entitlements for content viewing. This type of security opens up the potential for flexible business models that can help up-sell OTT content for premium services and cross-sell over multi-layer, multi-device distribution.
“Jaman Networks is a key new member of the ecosystem that supports this type of advanced service delivery, enabling video content publishing across a range of devices from HD screens to mobile platforms,” said Steve Oetegenn , chief sales and marketing officer, Verimatrix. “Combining a sophisticated publishing system with a proven security architecture helps existing operators deploy a wider variety of client devices and promises to enable a range of new digital TV business models.”
