Megacable selects Verimatrix for next-generation revenue security for hybrid transition

Security specialist Verimatrix announced that it will be securing revenue for Mexico’s operator Megacable as it transitions from offering traditional cable to more advanced hybrid services. The company’s VCAS for Broadcast Hybrid solution manages secure video delivery over Megacable’s broadcast, multicast and OTT networks to single-network and hybrid receivers, plus a wide range of mobile devices.

Verimatrix said in a press release that it already secures the revenue of Megacable’s first IPTV over FTTH pilot service, which is delivered to nearly 15,000 homes in the city of Guanajuato, and the deployment is now being extended to encompass the entire customer base.

The Verimatrix platform is replacing Megacable’s previous security application through a “cap and grow” implementation strategy for a seamless and efficient transition to higher value services. This allows the operator to use the new security system wherever the new services are introduced.

VCAS for Broadcast Hybrid is a multi-network revenue security solution that draws on the strengths of VCAS for IPTV, and the successful VCAS for Internet TV, to enable combinations of RF and multicast linear content delivery together with adaptive bitrate (ABR) streaming services, while ensuring harmonized rights management.
