Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

IPTV DRM specialist Verimatrix said at the TelcoTV show in Texas this week that it has landed a deal with Motorola to put its Video Content Authority System (VCAS) on Motorola IP set-top boxes.

Motorola, of course, has all its own encryption services for the cable TV industry, but these don't translate directly across to IPTV.

This is the first time that Motorola's set top, the VIP1900 series, has fully supported VCAS. The VIP1900 series is a High Definition H.264 capable set top with DVR.

It is important for most vendors attending TelcoTV to take the new HD chips, which have only been in volume for a few weeks, and get them integrated into IPTV architectures including DRM as rapidly as possible.

The Motorola VIP1900 is a Linux Java-based set top, which also features the KreaTV Application Platform, which is the same set-top software platform used in previous generations of IP STBs from recent acquisition Kreatel.
