Verimatrix’s ViewRight PC Player debuts at IPTV World Forum
The ViewRight PC Player is an IP client application that delivers video content to broadband-connected PCs, and it has many of the same time-shift and trick-play capabilities of a digital video recorder (DVR).
IPTV providers can offer the ViewRight PC Player as a premium content package across a range of home network devices, while also creating new revenue streams with tiered pricing.
The player can display standard-definition (SD) and high-definition (HD) MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 content, which is protected by Verimatrix’s Video Content Authority System (VCAS) and can be paused, rewound and recorded through a user interface. Recorded streams retain the full VCAS encryption, ensuring that they remain protected and subject to operator playback entitlement. The ViewRight also has Verimatrix’s user-specific watermarking technology embedded in the client.
Additionally, Verimatrix announced that VCAS has been deployed to secure video-on-demand (VOD) premium content as part of TUS Telekom’s  IPTV offering.
