As the result of the agreement, Zigo has been able to expand its Ziggo TV multi-screen service which is delivered via a Ziggo-managed Wi-Fi connection. Divitel is the systems integrator for the deployment, which relies on the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) for Internet TV to provide a seamless and transparent security solution. Moreover, VCAS also enables the operators to easily phase in support for additional desktop or mobile devices in the future.
The Verimatrix VCAS provides the tools and support digital TV operators require in order to address the new opportunities arising from the accelerating convergence of video delivery over various types of networks - whether managed or unmanaged - to a multitude of devices. This convergence must encompass a proactive revenue protection and enhancement approach that enables service operators to cast a much wider net with their service offerings.
'There are many challenges associated with deploying multi-screen video services, with content security perhaps being the most complex and having the biggest impact on the bottom line,' said Gerton van den Beld, chief commercial officer, Divitel. 'Partnering with Verimatrix was an easy decision for us, as the company is a true pioneer in multi-network, multi-screen revenue security, and its experts possess the knowledge required to successfully provide enhanced OTT security functionality.'
'In the world of multi-screen video, having a broad and trusted partner ecosystem is critical to the success of the deployment,' said Steve Oetegenn (News

We are proud of our collaboration with innovators such as Divitel on the ZiggoTV deployment, and look forward to working with them in the future to fuel the rollout of successful multi-screen video services around the globe.'
