Press release

In partnership with Verimatrix Teleste launches a new, cardless security option for decrypting protected TV content in headend.  The new Luminato Bulk Descrambler offers operators an effective, embedded alternative for providing consumers a diversity of video content through their networks.

Turku, Finland – 29 May 2017 – Teleste, a leading provider of video and broadband technologies and related services, today announced that the Teleste Luminato headend has been integrated with the Verimatrix ViewRight® security software component . This integration enables bulk decryption of multiple streams of protected video content in a single Luminato receiver module, avoiding external exposure of any decrypted content and preventing possible security breaches and points of failure. Verimatrix is the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services around the globe.

 “Security solutions are at the core of all key monetization strategies for next-generation video services. We are glad to work with Teleste to provide operators flexible choices for a proactive role in service delivery while combatting revenue threats and enabling business opportunities,” stated Petr Peterka, CTO, Verimatrix.

Content owners and producers usually require the content to be transmitted in encrypted format to prevent unauthorised use and piracy. Many video operators around the world use the Verimatrix VCAS™ security solution to enable such state of the art protection in their deployments. Powered by the sophisticated ViewRight software client and its bulk decryption of IP encapsulated video transport streams, Teleste Luminato creates a smart and powerful choice for decrypting the protected content without smart cards. It can provide a highly controlled decryption of up to 300 protected TV channels and enables operators to flexibly bundle the channels for their service delivery needs.

We are pleased to introduce this new alternative for content protection at our Luminato headend. For today’s consumers, TV services still hold their position among the most trusted forms of entertainment, and creating attractive service bundles is vital for operators to compete for consumers’ loyalty. Versatile and reliable tools are needed to answer to customers’ content expectations. Empowered by Verimatrix Bulk Descrambling capabilities, our Luminato headend offers operators a high-performance option to enhance the value of their TV services, “ told Julius Tikkanen, Vice President of Video Service Platforms for Teleste Corporation.
