Japan's OnDemand TV Deploy Verimatrix IPTV Content Protection

OnDemand TV, a joint venture between NTT West, NTT East and Itochu, has deployed the Verimatrix Content Authority System (VCAS) to protect Video-on-Demand (VOD) and broadcast content. OnDemand TV is using IPv6-based fiber networks with MPEG-2 compression to deliver its extensive library of VOD movies and 27 broadcast channels to its FTTH subscribers across Japan.

VCAS was integrated with the SeaChange IP Video System, SkyStream's Mediaplex-20 video headend for video streaming and Buffalo's PC-STB1 set-top box. Itochu Technoscience Corporation (CTC) is the prime system integrator for OnDemand TV.
