Verimatrix customer DishHome has extended its investment to support next-generation Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) cardless security, powered by the Video Content Authority System (VCAS) Ultra platform. DishHome is Nepal’s largest Direct-to-Home (DTH) operator and has relied on Verimatrix for DVB security since 2011.

DishHome originally invested in VCAS for DVB to provide a future-proof approach to revenue security that could scale with the company and maintain its position as a market leader as business models continued to evolve. In addition to enhanced security, the latest advancements in DVB support from the VCAS Ultra platform offer EMM bandwidth optimization. This results in optimization of the satellite transponder bandwidth utilization, which enables more channels to be added to DishHome services.

“We are pleased to take advantage of the enhanced, next-generation security platform as we prepare to expand service offerings and significantly broaden our reach to capture a larger subscriber base with the shutdown of analog transmission in the country,” said DishHome Chief Operating Officer (COO) Keshav Kanta Poudel.
