Teleste’s Luminato headend for pay-TV companies has integrated the Verimatrix ViewRight security software component.

Verimatrix 31may2017The integration enables bulk decryption of multiple streams of protected video content in a single Luminato receiver module, avoiding external exposure of any decrypted content and preventing possible security breaches and points of failure. Verimatrix is the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multiscreen digital TV services around the globe.

“Security solutions are at the core of all key monetisation strategies for next-generation video services,” stated Petr Peterka, CTO,  Verimatrix. “We are glad to work with Teleste to provide operators flexible choices for a proactive role in service delivery while combating revenue threats and enabling business opportunities.”

Content owners and producers usually require the content to be transmitted in encrypted format to prevent unauthorised use and piracy. Many video operators around the world use the Verimatrix VCAS security solution to enable protection in their deployments. Powered by the ViewRight software client and its bulk decryption of IP encapsulated video transport streams, Teleste Luminato can decrypt the protected content without smart cards. It can provide a highly controlled decryption of up to 300 protected TV channels and enables operators to flexibly bundle the channels for their service delivery needs.

“We are pleased to introduce this new alternative for content protection at our Luminato headend,” said Julius Tikkanen, vice president of video service platforms for Teleste. “For today’s consumers, TV services still hold their position among the most trusted forms of entertainment, and creating attractive service bundles is vital for operators to compete for consumers’ loyalty. Versatile and reliable tools are needed to answer to customers’ content expectations. Empowered by Verimatrix Bulk Descrambling capabilities, our Luminato headend offers operators a high performance option to enhance the value of their TV services.”
