Verimatrix Secures Corvette
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.”
