At the recent IBC 2015, content security firm, Verimatrix announced that Forthnet, the largest entertainment and communications provider in Greece, has deployed the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS™) for Internet TV solution to ensure the revenue security of its Nova GO service. Nova is the largest satellite pay-TV platform in Greece.

Forthnet's network is comprised of both DVB-S MPEG-2 and DVB-S MPEG 4, with the Internet TV component being delivered over-the-top (OTT). The solution fully leverages enhanced HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) security for catch-up/on-demand and unicast linear services to hybrid STBs, mobile devices and smart TVs. Integrating VCAS for Internet TV with Huawei's Hybrid Video platform enables Forthnet to easily extend its OTT service to existing and new set-top boxes, said Verimatrix.

Demetris Papazafeiropoulos, technical director, Forthnet
Partnering with Verimatrix will not only enhance the revenue security of our Nova GO service, but will also optimize our integration with Huawei's Hybrid Video Platform and enable our subscribers to access more content on a wider range of devices. 

Steve Oetegenn, president, Verimatrix
Forthnet's commitment to customer satisfaction is clearly evident. We are happy to support their efforts by providing them with a robust and cost-effective revenue security solution that will seamlessly scale to incorporate new services and a growing subscriber base.
