Verimatrix has announced its role in securing the over the top (OTT) video managed by the Russian service provider Personal Media Technology (PMT). PMT manages OViVO – a unique personalized video service. Access to OViVO is via a special subscriber access device that is connected to a TV and the Internet and has an interface managed by remote control.
The Russian service provider has deployed the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) for its personalized digital TV service to protect OTT video services and enable an untethered viewing experience for a wide range of downloaded content.
OViVO organizes the user’s TV viewing without a traditional subscription. Developed and produced in Russia, the service liberates users by preparing content on their behalf, learning what they like and organizing content based on preferences. The more the viewer watches, the better the system’s recommendations become. This type of personalized approach allows OViVO to deliver targeted ads to a self-selected audience.
The company is currently conducting beta tests on the service.?? VCAS provides a digital TV security solution for IP delivered video services over multiple network types. While media delivery is based on industry standard protocols, Verimatrix’s experience in IPTV revenue security has been used as a foundation for sophisticated extensions to the protection mechanisms that ensure secret key material is securely managed and selectively distributed to authorized clients.
