SINGAPORE, June 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — BroadcastAsia 2018, Singapore — Verimatrix, a specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for network-connected devices and services, today announced that Maldivian telecommunications and digital services provider Dhiraagu has deployed its Video Content Authority System (VCAS™) for Broadcast-Hybrid solution to secure IPTV and OTT video delivery. Combining sophisticated security technology with intuitive user interfaces, VCAS for Broadcast Hybrid provides a single source for rights management while ensuring a seamless multiscreen viewing experience.

Verimatrix specializes in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services and is recognized as the global number one in revenue security for connected video devices.

Dhiraagu is the leading and the largest provider of telecommunications and digital services in the Maldives, reaching all of the country’s 199 inhabited islands. Dhiraagu TV is the Maldives’ first nationwide IPTV service and the only to offer an entire catalogue of premium channels nationwide. A fixed broadband connection delivers content using a set-top box (STB), while Dhiraagu Mobile unlocks a TV Everywhere experience by enabling streaming via laptop, smartphone or tablet.

“As the nation’s first video streaming service provider, we realize we bear the responsibility of making content accessible to all residents, but we also strive to take our commitment even further by continuously excelling in customer experience,” said Dhiraagu Chief Marketing Officer Ahmed Maumoon. “Verimatrix helps us execute on our mission by supplying the advanced anti-piracy technology needed to support a range of viewing devices—technology that does so without affecting our end users in the slightest.”

VCAS for Broadcast-Hybrid combines efficient and secure linear service delivery over RF networks with modern server-side, two-way key management, and fully leverages enhanced HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) security for catch-up/on-demand and unicast linear services to hybrid STBs, smart TVs and mobile devices. The cardless revenue security solution draws on the strengths of the global number-one VCAS for IPTV and the highly successful VCAS for Internet TV, and it ensures harmonized rights management for subscribers at home and on the go.

“As Dhiraagu developed its vision for providing subscribers full content access independent of time, device and location, it was also very conscious of implementing the security to ensure compliance with content owner requirements,” said Steve Oetegenn, president of Verimatrix. “Dhiraagu selected VCAS for Broadcast-Hybrid, which strengthens security by provisioning rights for all platforms and without compromising the user experience.”
