IDC’s deployment of the Verimatrix VCAS Content Security platform ensures local broadcasters comply with industry standards.

France's Verimatrix, (Euronext Paris: VMX) announced that Ontario, Canada-based International Datacasting Corporation (IDC), a global provider of products, systems and services for the distribution of multimedia broadband content, recently selected the Verimatrix VCAS video encryption technology to protect the airing of valuable sporting events for IDC's broadcasting customers serving the LATAM market.

Verimatrix notes its VCAS platform fortifies video content from external threats, is easily scalable, and relies on proven interoperability with subsystem providers (including billing, encoding, middleware and application vendors) to "make it the modern network security solution of choice for video solution providers such as IDC," according to a statement by the companies.

The partners note that highly valuable content such as live and recorded sports requires networks to employ rigorous broadcast security measures, requiring vendors and partners to offer dependable, time-tested technology and service. IDC’s selection of Verimatrix’s security for its broadcasters underscores the confidence it has in VCAS, the provider said.

Having previously collaborated with Verimatrix, IDC added that it "expects this latest deployment to serve as a potential springboard for additional similar deployments in the region and beyond."

“IDC is pleased to work with Verimatrix to implement encryption technology that’s clearly up to the challenge of protecting some of the world’s most heavily watched content,” said Diana Cantú, VP Marketing and Sales for IDC. She added, “Verimatrix is widely recognized as a consistently compliant solution. Plus, the Verimatrix team does an outstanding job of meeting challenging schedule requirements amid increasingly complicated global logistics. Verimatrix remains a key IDC partner for video security projects around the world and we look forward to ongoing collaboration.”

“Having been tasked with securing broadcasts of some of the most highly anticipated sporting events on the planet, Verimatrix is a seasoned veteran at providing the requisite assurances that compliance is met,” affirmed Asaf Ashkenazi, Chief Operating Officer and President at Verimatrix. “We’re pleased to work with partners such as IDC to bring such adrenaline-fueled content to the masses.”
