CommunicAsia 2013, Multi-network Forum - Verimatrix

"Unified Rights Management for a Pervasive Video Experience" by Steve Christian, VP of Marketing, Verimatrix.

Asia is the world’s largest consumer of video content and a fertile ground for unauthorized offshore OTT services where a lack of regulation favors the growth of Internet-based pirate video operators, according to CASBAA. However operators are addressing this challenge by creating legitimate and engaging OTT services that add value for subscribers and attract a new generation of video hungry customers.

The ultimate goal is to offer an OTT video experience that is consistent across devices and consumption models, such as download and offline viewing. It needs to provide a seamless authentication process by managing security and content rights in the background, while creating one-to-one relationships with consumers to leverage targeted content recommendations and advertising.

At the Multi-network Solutions in the Real World Forum at CommunicAsia the panelists discussed how Asian operators are experimenting with new revenue models, service offerings and user experiences driven by OTT video networks.
