Selevision, a Saudi Arabian technology and service provider, has deployed the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System for its entertainment service aptly called Seevii, which is delivered via a hybrid IPTV and OTT network.

“When Selevision first planned this new service, choosing the right revenue security solution was of paramount importance,” said Ammar Al Hares, COO, Selevision Dubai.

“We selected VCAS for Broadcast-Hybrid because of its proven ability to provide robust protection for premium content library, as well as its ability to scale to protect future services.”

Seevii offers 200 channels in HD and SD in addition to restart TV, catch-up TV, full advanced electronic program guide and video-on-demand (VOD) services. The service is delivered via different HEVC-based set-top boxes, iOS and Android smartphones and tablets in addition to a web portal, enabling users to seamlessly consume broadcast video, VOD and DVR content on additional screens anywhere in the home.

“Selevision is clearly committed to providing its users with the access to the content and services they demand. We are delighted to play such a critical role in this exciting deployment,” said Steve Oetegenn, president, Verimatrix.

“Together we have created a robust, yet flexible revenue security framework to serve as the foundation of its new service, while also providing them the scalability to add new services in the future.”
