Megacable to use Verimatrix CAS in hybrid transition

Wednesday 13 September 2017 | 14:34 CET | News

Verimatrix announced a contract to secure the revenues of Mexican cable operator Megacable as it transitions from offering traditional cable to more advanced hybrid services. The Mexican company will be using the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) to secure video delivery over its broadcast, multicast and over-the-top (OTT) networks to single-network and hybrid receivers, plus a wide range of mobile devices. Verimatrix 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 contract includes the deployment of the VCAS for Broadcast Hybrid, a multi-network revenue security solution that draws on the strengths of VCAS for IPTV and VCAS for Internet TV to enable combinations of RF and multicast linear, and streamed on demand content delivery, while ensuring integrated rights management.
