Verimatrix, and WISI announced that Verimatrix video protection technologies are set to be deployed within the new WISI Professional ABR Receiver that enables video operators to connect multiscreen PayTV offerings to the edge while still maintaining existing infrastructure at hospitality sites. Designed to allow video operators that service the world?s major hospitality organizations to avoid costly upgrades, WISI?s Professional ABR (Adaptive Bitrate Streaming) Receiver, along with Verimatrix?s protection technologies, eliminate the need for new set-top boxes or TVs. The new Professional ABR Receiver is aimed at providing efficiency for hospitality sites and bulk accounts, such as hospitals, hotels, multi-dwelling units (MDUs), nursing homes, and prisons ? many of which are not ready to use ABR technologies. The ABR Receiver is scheduled for beta trials toward the end of this quarter with general availability set for First Quarter 2022. WISI and Verimatrix previously collaborated on Verimatrix bulk decryption for linear services within WISI?s Tangram Video Platform. WISI?s ABR Receiver with Verimatrix bulk decryption will be available as part of the Inca IP Video Platform. The Inca platform effortlessly bridges the gap between legacy equipment and new video technologies for both linear and ABR video applications and can replace racks of legacy headend equipment with one sophisticated platform.
