NXP Software and Verimatrix Bring Secure Content Delivery to Android Devices
EINDHOVEN, the Netherlands, February 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
NXP Software has integrated Verimatrix ViewRight(R) Web client security into the
Android version of its LifeVibes QuickPlayer. ViewRight Web is a component of the
Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS(TM)), and its integration into QuickPlayer
enables enhanced security for adaptive streaming content delivery on Android phones and
tablets. This opens the door to new revenue streams for service providers such as
broadcasters and IPTV providers to add premium (paid for) internet TV services.
“Consumer demand for premium content on smart phones and tablets is growing rapidly.
As a global leader in enabling exciting multimedia experiences, NXP Software is keen to
help service providers meet this demand. By partnering with Verimatrix, we have combined
our know-how in high quality video and audio on mobile device platforms like Android with
Verimatrix’s deep expertise in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-screen digital TV
services,” said Peter Van de Berg, Marketing Director, NXP Software.
This new version of LifeVibes QuickPlayer supports fast deployment of VCAS-secured
video service applications across the wide range of Android-based devices on the market
using the proven HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) adaptive bitrate protocol. It enables an
enhanced security infrastructure for HLS that is fully compliant with the rigorous
requirements for licensing premium content. Furthermore, LifeVibes QuickPlayer offers a
“living-room quality” user experience. It ensures a fast start to playback, and maintains
smooth viewing with no re-buffering, dropped service or visual artifacts even during
network switches and variations in bandwidth availability.
“As the OTT video market matures, network operators are now able to blend Internet TV
into their traditional services – from an operational, technology and revenue model
perspective. This requires enhanced security functionality and options in order to deliver
premium content to connected devices. Our partnership with NXP Software helps operators to
deliver services on the broadest range of new mobile devices, while still maintaining the
appropriate level of security,” said Steve Oetegenn, chief sales and marketing officer at
ViewRight Web and VCAS(TM) for Internet TV are components of the VCAS 3
[http://www.verimatrix.com/solutions/vcas_technology.php ] architecture, which addresses
the new video marketplace with a proactive revenue security and enhancement approach for
DVB broadcast, hybrid, and IPTV networks. The Verimatrix ViewRight Web client family is a
robust package of portable security applications that provide enhanced security for HLS
service delivery, including authentication and fine grain entitlement management for a
variety of device categories, including PC/Macs, mobile handsets, tablets, set-top boxes
and connected TVs.
