Interra Systems, a global provider of quality control (QC) and monitoring solutions to the digital media industry, today announced a partnership with Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for network-connected devices and services. Broadcasters, pay-TV, and OTT service providers can now use Interra Systems' ORION¢ content monitoring suite to deliver superior quality of experience (QoE) for content protected by the Verimatrix ViewRight® Web security client solution. The integrated solution is purely software-based, and operators have the flexibility to deploy it either on cloud-based servers or in their local data centers.
As the OTT market matures, the need for superior QoE is now more critical than ever. Service providers have been typically relying on monitoring solutions with basic quality of service (QoS) without delving into deeper issues within the protected content. This partnership with Verimatrix allows Interra Systems' solutions to monitor in-depth quality of such content, which is not possible otherwise.
"With its end-to-end QC and monitoring solutions, Interra Systems is committed to helping operators increase revenue by delivering high-quality content. To this end, we have been expanding our support for DRM-protected content," said Anupama Anantharaman, director, product marketing and sales, Interra Systems. "We are truly excited to be partnered with Verimatrix, a leader in revenue security solutions. We expect operators who are using the Verimatrix DRM solutions to benefit from this partnership. We already have a major broadcaster in Malaysia that has deployed our combined solution for delivering live channels and VOD content."
Interra Systems' ORION content monitoring family makes it easy for operators in the global broadcast, cable, telco, satellite, IPTV, and OTT markets to deliver flawless video on every device through their software-defined architecture, comprehensive audio and video checks, and easy deployability on cloud-based infrastructures. ORION¢-OTT, one of the industry's first software-based OTT solutions, validates ABR streams along with QoE in real time for multiscreen service delivery over unmanaged networks.
"In the current competitive landscape, monitoring the quality of and protecting online video content is equally critical, especially in terms of monetizing multiscreen video services," said Petr Peterka, chief technology officer at Verimatrix. "With Interra Systems, whose QC and monitoring solutions are widely adopted and trusted by operators around the world, we have streamlined this process for our customers who are using Interra Systems' solutions."
Verimatrix offers a complete multiscreen and multi-DRM solution for premium content security and monetization solutions, based on its award-winning Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS¢) platform and services. In particular, its MultiRights¢ OTT Plus offering provides a frictionless user experience utilizing a secure media player and a uniform interface across all client devices.
