Ontario, Canada-based International Datacasting Corporation (IDC), a global provider of products, systems and services for the distribution of multimedia broadband content, has selected Verimatrix VCAS video encryption technology to protect the airing of valuable sporting events for its broadcasting customers serving the LATAM market.
Highly valuable content such as live and recorded sports requires networks to employ rigorous broadcast security measures. Having previously collaborated with Verimatrix, IDC expects this latest deployment to serve as a potential springboard for additional similar deployments in the region and beyond.
