"As we enter this exciting new domain of premium video delivery, we couldn't be more pleased to already have such a deep level of confidence in our security framework and trust in Verimatrix to navigate us through the complex requirements associated with UHD/4K services," said Dr. Chih-Cheng Lo, deputy principal engineer at Chunghwa Telecom. "Selecting VCAS Ultra was an easy decision, but we also know it is the optimal solution to support our future goals as we continue to evolve to stay ahead of the competition."

Architected to enable the transition towards IP and software-based video delivery, VCAS Ultra extends operators' reach to premium UHD services and advanced hybrid network deployments. VCAS Ultra also enables operators to take advantage of physical or virtual configurations to support cloud system integrations. It features enhanced content security profiles to meet MovieLabs' defined UHD service requirements—including fully integrated multi-network VideoMark watermarking technology, as well as TEE support.

A key driver for the transition to VCAS Ultra is that Verimatrix offers the flexibility for it to be integrated with any IPTV middleware solution, including one Chunghwa Telecom developed specifically for its new UHD/4K platform.

"Verimatrix has invested extensively in the development of VCAS Ultra to ensure we are offering the flexibility and scalability our customers need to get and stay ahead in a rapidly shifting landscape," said Steve Oetegenn, president of Verimatrix.

"We are thrilled to grow our existing relationship with Chunghwa Telecom as it responds to demands in Taiwan for UHD/4K premium services. We can relieve the burden by evolving the existing VCAS framework into one that supports its new UHD/4K platform and ensures compliance with the redefined range of security requirements that come with it."
