In a move that it says delivers secure live video, content security firm Verimatrix has undertaken an API integration between its Video Content Authority System (VCAS) Ultra solution and AWS Elemental MediaConnect.

AWS MediaConnect 28Nov2018Verimatrix says that as content providers and video service operators move content delivery workflows to the cloud, they need a reliable and efficient way to upload and transfer live streams. The API integration provide conditional access (CA) and rights management applied between the content ingest and distribution workflows to video service providers.

The VCAS Ultra API integration with AWS Elemental MediaConnect is designed to fulfil two main use cases – securing distribution workflows to downstream operators and enforcing the entitlements that ensure authorised operators have access to the right live streams.

In addition to the standalone importance of secure cloud-based live video distribution via AWS Elemental MediaConnect, Verimatrix adds that the API integration has the potential to further expand deployment models and value proposition of connected content distribution workflows that streamline end-to-end delivery and automate video analytics reporting between content providers and video service operators.

VCAS Ultra is a proven and widely adopted security solution for premium video services, and our API integration with AWS Elemental MediaConnect offers value-added flexibility and options for live video distribution,” said Verimatrix CTO Petr Peterka.

“The ability to secure, authenticate, and enforce distribution rights of live broadcast content in an automatic fashion is another example of a leading-edge cloud workflow that offers a compelling alternative to satellite or fibre distribution.”
