Verimatrix and Ocilion Partner to Enable Secure, Future-Proof IPTV Delivery Across Austria

Sponsored by Businesswire

Verimatrix, the leader in redefining the standard for connected devices
and services with an innovative combination of security and data
analytics, and IPTV technology company Ocilion today announced two large
Austrian operators as their latest customers. kabelplus and Salzburg AG
have each selected on-premise IPTV solutions from Ocilion that are
secured by Verimatrix, enabling more flexible and future-proof video
delivery models.

Both operators opted independently for on-premise deployments hosted in
their distinctive infrastructures, optimally suiting larger volumes of
subscribers using Ocilion’s new homogenous P400 family of 4K set-top
boxes (STBs), which combines innovation, design, functionality and
efficiency. The advanced and adaptable technology offers the flexibility
needed to support various delivery models, whether hybrid, FTTH or OTT,
while the integrated Verimatrix client supports digital rights
management (DRM) for IP, IP/DVB-C and OTT.

“kabelplus and Salzburg AG came to us with unique challenges and needs
that will grow and evolve as consumer demands and security requirements
continue to rapidly shift,” said Hans Kühberger, CEO of Ocilion. “We are
very pleased to fulfil their demands for increasingly sophisticated
modern and high-end IPTV services with our future-proof on-premise
solution, including our new P400 family and resolve complex security
requirements in partnership with Verimatrix.”

The decision for kabelplus, the largest cable network provider in Lower
Austria and Burgenland, to launch its own IPTV product resulted from the
need to extend its portfolio for its HFC network with extra products and
services, and it came during the middle of a FTTH expansion and rollout.
In need of a competitive edge to reinforce its position as a top service
provider, kabelplus saw the Ocilion-Verimatrix partnership as the
perfect fit to elevate its product portfolio with new premium features
and bundling options.

When live-only DVB-C delivery was no longer enough to support Salzburg
AG’s consumer demands, the Salzburg energy, transport and
telecommunications provider turned to Ocilion and Verimatrix to set the
foundation for it to be able to offer premium service enhancements and
maximize upselling opportunities with long-term adaptability.

With these deployments, the Austrian operators are also laying the
foundation for secure UHD ecosystems with OcilionsP400 line of STBs
having officially received the Verimatrix 4.0 Ultra Security
certification. This certification emphasizes their readiness to fully
meet UHD security requirements, ensuring that they meet UHD content
guidelines set by MovieLabs’ Specifications for Next Generation Video
and Enhanced Content Protection.

“Achieving Ultra Security certification means that Ocilion’s advanced
STBs are trusted to deliver premium content to kabelplus and Salzburg AG
consumers at the highest quality possible and in accordance with the
strongest security requirements specified by premium rights holders,”
commented Verimatrix COO Steve Oetegenn. “Ultimately, the combined
strengths of Ocilion and Verimatrix presents a formidable barrier
against piracy in a form that can be updated readily to ensure these
operators are able to keep pace with the evolving threat landscape.”
