Verimatrix wins two more multi-screen deals
Verimatrix announced two more partners that have agreed to use its content protection system to secure multi-screen content: TiVo and Akamai.
Last week, Verimatrix announced that Samsung Electronics is set to secure content provided via its Smart TVs with Verimatrix’s ViewRight security software.
TiVo plans to integrate Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) to protect content delivered through hybrid set-top boxes (STBs) that use TiVo’s user interface. That includes content protection for content ultimately consumed on tablets, smartphones and other browser-based devices.
Separately, Verimatrix and Akamai announced plans to integrate the latter’s Sola Media Solutions’ viewer-enhancing client technologies into components of VCAS.
The combination is designed to provide security for Akamai’s management, delivery and audience analytics services. As with the TiVo and Samsung deals, one of the key elements is the protection of content that will end up being viewed on a variety of mobile client devices.
