NXP Software has integrated Verimatrix enhanced HLS content
authorization into its LifeVibes QuickPlayer opening the way for
premium internet TV services on Android phones and tablets
EINDHOVEN, the Netherlands, Feb. 16, 2012 /CNW/ - NXP Software has
integrated Verimatrix ViewRight® Web client security into the Android
version of its LifeVibes QuickPlayer. ViewRight Web is a component of
the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCASTM), and its integration into QuickPlayer enables enhanced security for
adaptive streaming content delivery on Android phones and tablets. This
opens the door to new revenue streams for service providers such as
broadcasters and IPTV providers to add premium (paid for) internet TV
"Consumer demand for premium content on smart phones and tablets is
growing rapidly. As a global leader in enabling exciting multimedia
experiences, NXP Software is keen to help service providers meet this
demand. By partnering with Verimatrix, we have combined our know-how in
high quality video and audio on mobile device platforms like Android
with Verimatrix's deep expertise in securing and enhancing revenue for
multi-screen digital TV services," said Peter Van de Berg, Marketing
Director, NXP Software.
This new version of LifeVibes QuickPlayer supports fast deployment of
VCAS-secured video service applications across the wide range of
Android-based devices on the market using the proven HTTP Live
Streaming (HLS) adaptive bitrate protocol. It enables an enhanced
security infrastructure for HLS that is fully compliant with the
rigorous requirements for licensing premium content. Furthermore,
LifeVibes QuickPlayer offers a "living-room quality" user experience.
It ensures a fast start to playback, and maintains smooth viewing with
no re-buffering, dropped service or visual artifacts even during
network switches and variations in bandwidth availability.
"As the OTT video market matures, network operators are now able to
blend Internet TV into their traditional services - from an
operational, technology and revenue model perspective. This requires
enhanced security functionality and options in order to deliver premium
content to connected devices. Our partnership with NXP Software helps
operators to deliver services on the broadest range of new mobile
devices, while still maintaining the appropriate level of security,"
said Steve Oetegenn, chief sales and marketing officer at Verimatrix.
ViewRight Web and VCASTM for Internet TV are components of the VCAS 3 architecture, which addresses the new video marketplace with a
proactive revenue security and enhancement approach for DVB broadcast,
hybrid, and IPTV networks. The Verimatrix ViewRight Web client family
is a robust package of portable security applications that provide
enhanced security for HLS service delivery, including authentication
and fine grain entitlement management for a variety of device
categories, including PC/Macs, mobile handsets, tablets, set-top boxes
and connected TVs.
