SAN DIEGO -- Verimatrix, setting the standard in content security technologies that enhance the value of pay-TV networks, today announced at CSTB 2007 that Corvette Telecom and its subsidiary, City TV, have selected the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS™) to provide digital video content security throughout their new IPTV network. Corvette telecom is launching the IPTV and Video-on-Demand services under the City TV brand name in 2007 to meet growing demand for sophisticated entertainment options.

Corvette is building last mile fibre networks in Moscow, offering customers broadband Internet connectivity at up to 100 mb/s and is expected to reach more than 600,000 homes by the end of 2007.

Corvette’s new IPTV platform will provide its customers with a full range of pay-TV services, supported by network PVR (personal video recorder) functionality with stop, start and rewind of live TV. In addition subscribers will have access to compelling on-demand content, including Hollywood, independent and Russian feature films, as well as music, children’s and lifestyle programming.

The foundation for City TV is the SeaChange TV Platform, which debuted at IBC 2006, supported by the Verimatrix content security solution. “Content security was a big piece of the puzzle for our IPTV service in order to gain access to the best content,” said Dominic Reed, president and CEO of Corvette. “Verimatrix was an easy decision for us because of its innovative approach to content security, the straightforward integration and technical support, and most importantly, the fact that we can easily grow into the solution as we gain new subscribers.”

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
