VITEC, a provider of video encoding and streaming solutions, and ATX Networks, a provider of optical and media access platforms, have announced a strategic partnership to provide a fully secure architecture for distribution of IPTV content throughout the enterprise network via VITEC’s EZ TV IPTV and Digital Signage Platform and ATX’s carrier-grade UCrypt IP gateways.
“As content security becomes an increasing priority and a key requirement for any size IPTV project, this new AES content protection capability and the integration with VITEC’s EZ TV Platform is an exciting expansion of benefits for customers,” Ian Lerner, Chief Product Officer, Media Distribution Solutions, ATX, said. “The addition of AES output encryption support allows partners like VITEC to have a more practical and cost-effective way to ensure encrypted streams from the UCrypt IP video gateway can only be viewed by authorized users. Together with VITEC’s EZ TV Platform for managing DRM workflows, we are able to offer a secure, enterprise-grade, multiscreen experience with AES decryption for desktop users via a browser player, for TV and signage displays utilizing EZ TV end-points, and for Android and iOS users using EZ TV’s mobile app.”
“IP-based video distribution of live cable and satellite TV content brings a broad range of advantages for any organization seeking to cost-effectively and securely deliver high-quality content to any screen and any user in the organization,” Eli Garten, Vice President of Enterprise Video Solutions at VITEC, said. “VITEC’s EZ TV Platform has been the architecture of choice for managing and distributing content originating from ATX’s UCrypt gateways for hundreds of corporate, government, education and sports venue customers. This latest integration enables our customers to achieve maximum protection with a simple, reliable setup that is approved by leading service providers.”
