Verimatrix Enhances Revenue Security for AXTEL's New IPTV Service 
Leading Mexican Telecommunications Company Chooses VCAS for IPTV to
Seamlessly Protect Existing and Future Network Configurations 
LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 04/02/13 --   NAB Show 2013 -
Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for
multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services around the globe,
today announced that AXTEL, a Mexican telecommunications company, has
chosen the Verimatrix Video Content Authority (VCAS(TM)) for IPTV
solution to secure its new service, which combines IPTV broadcast
channels with multi-screen video-on-demand (VoD), a network-based
personal video recorder (PVR) and interactive content via IP, along
with access to free-to-air DTT broadcasts channels.  
The new service is AXTEL's first media service over its fiber
network, helping AXTEL achieve its triple-play vision of video, voice
and broadband. AXTEL selected VCAS(TM) for IPTV because of its robust
revenue protection capabilities and scalability, which will allow
AXTEL to easily add over-the-top (OTT) or even direct-to-home (DTH)
satellite services using the same core platform in the future. As the
global number one solution in IPTV content protection, VCAS enables
the secure delivery of linear TV broadcast and on-demand video
services, and offers a solid upgrade platform that AXTEL can use to
cost-effectively enhance its competitive advantage. 
"We strive to ensure our valued subscribers have a superior quality
of experience (QoE) with access to the most popular and entertaining
content available," said Jenaro Martinez Lopez, AXTEL TV director.
"To achieve this vision, we needed a flexible revenue security
solution that could provide robust protection for our existing
services along with the multi-network capability to satisfy future
customer demand beyond our managed network. We are confident that the
proven and reliable VCAS multi-network platform meets both our
immediate and potential future requirements." 
Ericsson deployed and integrated the end-to-end next generation TV
platform, including an MPEG-4 AVC head-end for linear and on-demand
standard definition (SD) and high definition (HD) TV channels, and
the Ericsson Multi-screen TV Solution. VCAS for IPTV is integrated
with the Ericsson solutions, which are installed on set-top-boxes
(STB) made by Kaon Media. The STBs also feature EPG navigation by
Mirada. 
"With an extensive partner ecosystem, Verimatrix is extremely well
poised to help operators around the globe realize their goals," said
Steve Oetegenn, chief sales and marketing officer, Verimatrix. "We
are delighted to be working with Ericsson, Kaon and Mirada to help
AXTEL achieve its vision and further extend the reach of its popular
services in the competitive Mexican pay-TV market."  
VCAS for IPTV is a fully integrated component of the umbrella VCAS
architecture, which enables secure video delivery across a broad
range of networks and device types. VCAS shifts the value proposition
beyond content protection, towards the broader perspective of revenue
security. Digital TV operators are able to address new opportunities

of networks to a multitude of devices. VCAS for IPTV offers
