Digital media services company Avail-TVN has launched AnyView Authentication, a managed service for pay-TV providers that will enable them to more easily roll out TV Everywhere services by authenticating and authorizing subscribers.
AnyView Authentication works with the TV Everywhere portals of Fox, Turner Networks, MTV Networks, ESPN, NBCU and HBO; it has also gotten NBCU authorization for NBC's 2012 Olympics programming.
The service includes real-time authentication and authorization, and it links directly to portal authentication systems through the OATC and CableLabs Authentication standards when a programmer uses Adobe Pass or a proprietary authentication system like HBO Go.
Avail-TVN can also manage billing and support systems integration, provide an API for self-integration or synchronize to service provider information via automated flat file exchange.
"AnyView Authentication enables service providers of any size the opportunity to quickly get in the game with a TV Everywhere service," said Laurie Lawrence, chief marketing officer, Avail-TVN. "The service is designed to help them get into multiplatform delivery quickly and easily, without the need for major investments or time-consuming implementation."
