Leading Thai Service Provider Deploys VCAS for DVB-Hybrid for Enhanced Revenue Security

Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, today announced that CTH Public Company Limited (CTH), a leading service provider that brings together 300 cable operators in Thailand, has selected Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS(TM)) to provide revenue security for its new digital cable service.

CTH is one of the top pay-TV operators in Thailand. It offers more than 140 channels, with some thirty in High Definition (HD), including premium content such as Barclays English Premier League (EPL) soccer matches.

CTH selected VCAS for DVB-Hybrid to fuel its analog-to-digital transition with its unique ability to combine highly cost effective conditional access system (CAS) functionality with secure interactive services on an IP-based network. The Verimatrix cardless security solution is able to secure linear and on-demand content delivery, reducing OPEX and CAPEX as the operator expands its services. Goldenduck International Co. Ltd served as the systems integrator for the project.

"Verimatrix is one of the proven leaders in protecting advanced hybrid deployments," said Mr. Akradej Supamahitorn, CTO, CTH. "We chose to partner with them because of VCAS' unique ability to seamlessly scale and meet our complex business demands. Choosing such a robust yet flexible solution provides us with the revenue security solution we need to protect both our current multi-screen offering, and any additional services or applications we add in the future."

VCAS for DVB-Hybrid was deployed over CTH's existing nationwide fiber optic network using standards-based simulcrypt technology in the broadcast distribution architecture, enabling parallel operation of multiple CAS solutions and a smooth operational transition. The broadcast system operates in conjunction with a state of the art secure HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) delivery system for set top boxes (STBs), PCs, tablets and smartphones. The innovative VCAS security solution helps CTH qualify for licensing of premium content while also providing multi-network revenue protection for pay-TV services across the broadest range of multi-screen consumer devices.

"We are delighted to collaborate with CTH and Goldenduck on this exciting deployment," said Steve Oetegenn, president, Verimatrix. "Our proven cardless security solution offers them a single security approach to pure broadcast and hybrid video services, and allows them to future proof their managed network with OTT extensibility."

About CTH Public Company Limited (CTH)
CTH was founded in 2009 by more than 100 cable TV operators from all over Thailand in order to improve and provide quality contents to Thai viewers.

Under the new National Broadcasting and Telecommunication Commission of Thailand's new regulations to turn analogue signal to digital signal, there is a need for CTH to go beyond the content acquisition arm of the Association. The management saw the opportunity to build the business beyond cable TV by developing their own optical fiber network covering the whole country. Thus, CTH becomes a broadband cable operator and platform management, distributing variety of customized digital data such as Cable TV Broadcasting, Broadband Internet, and other related products & services for individuals and business customers.
