iNeXT company, a member of the ROMSAT group, had integrated technology ViewRight Web for Android by Verimatrix into their set-top boxes.
Internet TV (OTT / IPTV)
Each year, Internet TV (OTT / IPTV) is gaining momentum. And record low prices for the Internet have added the acceleration. According to the British company BDRC Continental - Ukraine took the second place in the ranking of the cheapness of the Internet with a monthly subscription fee $ 5.47.
Verimatrix and PayTV
Ukrainian Internet providers and mobile operators have quickly orientated on the market trend. So, we see new players coming out to the market of OTT and IPTV quite intensively. Top-level projects, such as: OLL.tv, VIASAT and VOLYA have high requirements for content protection from rightholders. They are already using as the main CAS and DRM solutions from Verimatrix. This allows their users to watch online TV and video library with legal content from the leading Ukrainian and international TV channels and studios.
Integration iNeXT and Verimatrix
The integration was made on the basis of the model iNeXT TV3. The attachment ViewRight Web for Android will be activated for the subscribers when necessary. We made a big step forward to meet the new OTT projects on a national scale. Standard models for retail and their firmware will not be affected by ViewRight, - says Denis Oleynik, technical director of iNeXT.
Extensive experience working with CAS had helped to choose the best option - ViewRight Web for Android by Verimatrix, because iNeXT runs on Android TV base. Verimatrix integration is rather laborious and expensive process. Only the top-tier manufacturers can afford similar protection from CAS and DRM in Ukraine. After integration the content transmits in encrypted form end-to-end and is fully protected from piracy.
iNeXT enters ROMSAT group and specializes in the development, design, manufacture and support of media players and OTT / IPTV STB on the local and foreign markets.
Verimatrix - is a recognized leader in providing solutions for content security for providers of digital television services.
