Verimatrix, a global enabler in powering the modern connected world with people-centered security, has announced that Proximus Luxembourg deployed the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS).
Founded by Belgian parent company Proximus Group in 2019, Proximus Luxembourg was created following the merger of Tango and Telindus, two of Belgium’s leading telecoms. In an effort to establish an entirely independent, competitive network infrastructure for content delivery, Proximus turned to the Verimatrix’s VCAS solution that arms the company with centralized and scalable rights management for its vast multi-screen offerings.
Proximus created their own on-prem infrastructure, designing a unique middleware system in conjunction with Verimatrix encryption tools. Before, Proximus Luxembourg utilized the Proximus Belgium TV infrastructure without the options of replay, record programs or have TV Everywhere (mobile TV) – hampering options for growth. The transition relied heavily on the seamless integration of Verimatrix technology, which helped Proximus to more easily take on other regional telecom competitors and comfortably reach number two in TV services in the country with a growth rate surpassing the leader.
“Verimatrix helped us in the best way possible through this important transition,” said Nuno Lopes, solutions architect at Proximus Luxembourg. “Swiftly and expertly migrating our existing client base was a primary goal of ours throughout this process. Without Verimatrix encryption tools, we wouldn’t have the same level of confidence that we currently exhibit in our network infrastructure. Verimatrix’s systems have been flawless since the beginning.”
“We’re pleased to provide the confidence that companies such as Proximus need as they grow both their offerings as well as their customer base,” said Asaf Ashkenazi, Chief Operating Officer at Verimatrix. “Our customers value Verimatrix’s emphasis on scalability, ease of integration and cost-effectiveness – it’s why so many organizations repeatedly look to Verimatrix as a trusted partner during times of pivotal transformation for their business.”
