US content protection expert Verimatrix has unveiled its new commercial-grade MPEG-DASH secure delivery solution at the annual IBC trade show which started in Amsterdam today.
Called Verimatrix VCAS for DASH, the company describes it as a world first, adding that it will help to open up the universe of multi-network, multi-screen delivery to DASH standard compliant smart devices.
Verimatrix will be demonstrating it in collaboration with ecosystem partners Envivio and NXP Software at this year’s IBC. The end-to-end delivery demonstration will illustrate DASH encoding and ISO standard encryption using the Envivio Muse Encoder, Envivio Halo Network Media Processor and NXP Software’s LifeVibes QuickPlayer.
Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH), also known as MPEG-DASH, is a standard for streaming of multimedia content over the open Internet, allowing connected devices to consume multimedia content delivered via the Internet in optimal quality thanks to its adaptive streaming technology.
Work on DASH started in 2010; it became a Draft International Standard in January 2011, and an International Standard in November 2011.
