Content security company Verimatrix has announced API integration between its Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) Ultra, and AWS Elemental MediaConnect.
The API integration provides video service providers with conditional access and rights management between content ingest and distribution workflows.
It is designed to secure distribution to operators and ensure that only authorised operators have access to the right live streams.
AWS Media Services make it easy to prepare, process, and deliver broadcast and multiscreen video from AWS, while AWS Elemental MediaConnect is a transport service for live video that offers broadcast-grade monitoring and management.
The API integration features VCAS Ultra deployed in the Verimatrix Secure Cloud, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that leverages AWS so that customers can eliminate the need to install, configure and manage physical servers to operate VCAS Ultra services.
“VCAS Ultra is a proven and widely adopted security solution for premium video services, and our API integration with AWS Elemental MediaConnect offers value-added flexibility and options for live video distribution,” said Petr Peterka, CTO of Verimatrix.
“The ability to secure, authenticate, and enforce distribution rights of live broadcast content in an automatic fashion is another example of a leading-edge cloud workflow that offers a compelling alternative to satellite or fibre distribution.”
Verimatrix is exhibiting at NAB this week at booth SU3110.
