Albania’s ALBtelecom Selects Verimatrix VCAS for Digital Rights Management

Share

NAB Show 2019 (Booth #SU3110) – Verimatrix, an Inside Secure (Euronext Paris – INSD) company, today announced that Albanian operator ALBtelecom has deployed the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS™) Broadcast Hybrid solution to provide digital rights management (DRM) for IPTV and OTT service delivery. VCAS for Broadcast Hybrid provides a single solution for rights management across RF linear, multicast linear and streamed on-demand content to enable consumers to enjoy the ideal, seamless screen-to-screen viewing experience.

“Investing in the VCAS framework supports our vision of continuing to be first-choice operator for Albanians on multiple fronts. In addition to reinforcing our long-standing reputation for reliability, it supports our mission of making continuous enhancements in the way we innovate and provide exceptional customer experiences,” said Skender Koltraka, Head of Fixed Network Department at ALBtelecom. “This deployment is also crucial in maintaining our commitment to content owners by adhering to new security requirements and dramatically reducing the high volume of illegal redistribution prevalent in our region.”

Another key factor for ALBtelecom in selecting the VCAS framework is Verimatrix’s long-standing partnership with its middleware provider Minerva. This facilitated a fast and easy integration with the flexibility needed to best complement the existing technology ecosystem.

“From the standpoints of both efficiency and effectiveness, ALBtelecom couldn’t have made a better choice than to protect its premium services with our VCAS framework,” said Steve Oetegenn, COO of Verimatrix. “Our technology will expand and adapt with ALBtelecom as it increases the number of channels to encrypt, devices to protect and customers to serve.”

Verimatrix will illustrate how it is leveraging its depth of experience in IP- and software-based security to protect and monetize next-generation services. Visit booth #SU3110 during the show or schedule a meeting at www.verimatrix.com/NAB2019.
