Verimatrix Selects S3 Group to Augment ViewRight Client Integration Program

Turnkey Service to Reduce Integration Cycle Time for Ecosystem Partners

DUBLIN, IRELAND and SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/29/13 -- S3 Group has been selected by Verimatrix to manage its partner pre-certification service and provide integration support for the Verimatrix ViewRight® client security library and its Video Content Authority System (VCAS™) solutions. As Verimatrix continues its rapid growth and expansion, the company needed a reliable outsourced solution provider to augment its in-house client integration team.

Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, has awarded S3 Group a multi-year, managed service contract to deliver this service to its customers.

S3 Group is providing Verimatrix's global operator customers and partners a turnkey ViewRight pre-certification and integration support service that will enable them to rapidly and flawlessly integrate the VCAS solution with their digital receiver devices.

S3 Group is currently focused on streamlining customer deployments of VCAS for DVB, with robust implementations of ViewRight on Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) enabled set-top boxes (STBs) -- enabling digital TV operators to take advantage of standards-based and proven DVB technology and an upgrade path to interactive IP-based networks using a VCAS single security authority. VCAS for DVB, which is deployed by more than 100 operators around the world, provides the ideal foundation for satellite, cable and terrestrial operators that wish to avail themselves of best-in class-security for one-way networks, while also preparing for a multi-screen future.

"The timely and smooth integration of our products is a competitive differentiator. We undertook a comprehensive selection process, and chose S3 Group for their domain expertise in working with pay-TV ecosystem partners, including our global system integrators. They impressed us with the maturity of their system integration toolsets and processes, offering a complete solution to help successfully guide our customers through our stringent certification process. We look forward to expanding our collaboration in the future," stated Steve Oetegenn, chief sales and marketing officer, Verimatrix.

"The Verimatrix ViewRight pre-certification and integration support service streamlines the certification process, meaning operators can get their devices to market faster and save on integration costs. This makes it even easier for them to choose market-leading VCAS solutions. We value the trust that Verimatrix has shown in relying on S3 Group to deliver this critical service for them," said Philip Brennan, vice president TV Technology, S3 Group.
