Verimatrix to Protect TCCL's Cable TV Digitalization Initiative
NEW DELHI, INDIA, Jan 14, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Convergence India 2013 - Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and
enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services
around the globe, today announced that Thamizhaga Cable TV
Communication Ltd. (TCCL), one of India's leading cable multi-service
operators, has selected the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System
(VCAS(TM)) architecture to provide cardless revenue security for its
new digital cable TV service. TCCL plans to digitize the entire state
of Tamil Nadu in the next 12 months, and it will rely on VCAS for DVB
not only to secure its new digital premium content offering, but also
to help promote subscriber and revenue growth.
TCCL's new digital cable service offers subscribers 500 digital
channels, 200 pay TV channels and 24 high definition (HD) channels.
Internet, IPTV, video on demand (VoD), online shopping and gaming
services are expected to be added in the future. Deploying VCAS for
DVB will enable TCCL to deploy a unified cardless security solution
to secure both live and interactive content delivery via a single
security head-end, reducing OPEX and CAPEX as TCCL expands its
services. Using a cardless security solution also eliminates the
burden of managing the logistics of smart cards.
"TCCL places a strong emphasis on quality of service (QoS) and
content. As such, it was very important to choose a revenue security
solution that would enable us to enhance subscriber experience and
expand our content library," said P. Sakilan, managing director,
TCCL. "VCAS was the only revenue security solution that could fulfill
these requirements while also giving us the flexibility to launch our
multi-screen offering in the future."
"This is a very exciting time for the Indian pay-TV industry, and
savvy operators such as TCCL are wise to leverage new technologies
during their digitalization efforts," said Steve Oetegenn, chief
sales and marketing officer, Verimatrix. "Doing so creates many
opportunities, including expanded service offerings, new business
models, increased subscribers, and other competitive advantages."
TCCL is the latest in a string of Indian cable TV operators to choose
Verimatrix for their DVB conditional access needs. The key vendor
selection criteria are based on the company's proven cardless
security technology in combination with a multi-network platform that
enables both multi-screen and hybrid DVB-OTT services.
