US content protection specialist Verimatrix has added a new component to its ViewRight ONE multi-network client security suite focused on format translation support.
ViewRight Gateway enables secure translation between incoming content streams from a managed video delivery network (both broadcast streams and DVD assets) and corresponding stream formats that are optimised for in-home distribution and consumption.
The initial secure formats supported are DTCP-IP and enhanced HTTP live streaming (HLS) security. In each case the fine grain control mechanisms required by content owners are managed through the single security authority VCAS head-end and maintained across the translation boundary.
“Multi-network, multi-screen video services are playing a increasingly vital role in successful pay-TV operators’ service portfolios,” said Steve Oetegenn, chief sales and marketing officer, Verimatrix.
“We’ve enhanced our ViewRight ONE framework with ViewRight Gateway to provide additional home networking options with robust, unified rights management capabilities. This is all with the goal of offering a range of solutions that can serve as the foundation of a compelling service value proposition.”
ViewRight Gateway was developed with home networking specialist partners within the Verimatrix ecosystem, including ACCESS, whose NetFront Living Connect DLNA technology component plays a key role in the new solution.
