Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services, this week announced a collaboration with Broadcom Corporation to provide a comprehensive revenue security solution for ultra high definition (UHD) video services. As part of the partnership, Verimatrix's hardware-based VideoMark™ forensic watermarking insertion technology will be introduced as an embedded security subsystem in Broadcom's Ultra HD system-on-chips (SoCs).
According to Verimatrix, its latest technology supports MovieLabs UHD premium service delivery requirements. The technology also ensures that the efficiency of core SoC level support is paired with a flexible robust payload management and delivery solution to provide a robust session specific forensic content tracking solution. Verimatrix added that the new approach offers many advantages, including streamlined set top box (STB) and smart TV integration, and the elimination of head-end video pre-processing requirements.
