Slovak Telekom using Verimatrix to support OTT multiscreen services

4 Jun 2013

Slovak Telekom, a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, has chosen Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) for Internet TV to protect its new ‘Magio GO’ over-the-top (OTT) multiscreen services. Slovak Telekom’s Magio GO service features a modular, scalable and flexible OTT delivery platform including 22 live TV channels; premium service ‘Magio GO Plus’ also provides enhanced services like nPVR, timeshift, TV archive and TV bookmarks. It is offered as an additional service to Slovak Telekom’s Magio TV products, and utilises the advanced HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) protocol. Magio GO is available on a variety of screens (TV, web, mobile) and is based on Slovak Telekom’s unique MCore converged multiscreen application framework, which delivers converged TV applications and services to IPTV, hybrid satellite and OTT customers.

Branimir Maric, chief technology and information officer at Slovak Telekom, said: ’In developing our new Magio GO solution, we leveraged the most advanced technologies, such as VCAS for Internet TV, to optimise the delivery and security of new multimedia and content services over unmanaged OTT networks. Such an approach offers Slovak Telekom a distinct competitive advantage by enabling us to offer our subscribers personalised, interactive, targeted apps and content, while also helping us further enhance our own revenue security.’
