BOLD Media Solutions Support Integrates Digital Element’s Geolocation Data to Deliver Accurate Digital Rights Management across Latin America
NetAcuity Helps Technology Company Innovate Solutions for Pay-TV Market
Atlanta, GA – March 14, 2018 – Digital Element, the global geolocation data and services provider, today announced that BOLD Media Solutions Support, an experienced systems integrator and software developer, has selected to use its NetAcuity® datasets to help deliver more accurate and reliable video digital rights management (DRM) throughout Latin America.
Headquartered in Uruguay with a focus on the Latin American pay-TV market of middle-sized operators, BOLD has been at the forefront of providing the most innovative solutions and products customized to companies’ unique needs in this space. BOLD has a varied group of clients in Latin America which have continued to show their loyalty through the years, among them NUEVO SIGLO and Montecable.
“Our clients needed a solution that combined geolocation, VPN and proxy detection so that they could make use of content from studios from which they had the rights,” said Ricardo Lima, director of BOLD S.A. “When we started the evaluation process, one of the criteria was that the geolocation solutions provider be well known within the industry. Digital Element came highly recommended not only for the accuracy of its data offerings in the LATAM region but also for ease of implementation and superior customer support.”
BOLD will integrate Digital Element’s NetAcuity Edge™ database, which includes validated, partner-contributed geographic postcode-level data, into its content manager system to help customers comply with industry requirements for video distribution. Additionally, the company will also employ Digital Element’s anonymous proxy and VPN databases to help add even more security for its DRM solutions.
“In addition to location, the detection of anonymous proxies and VPNs is becoming mandatory for any company looking to address the evolving challenges when it comes to providing a reliable DRM solution,” said Jorgelina Striedinger, vice president, Latin America, at Digital Element. “We’re seeing more companies across the video market spectrum―from studios to telecom companies to technology solutions providers―ask about the additional data parameters that we can offer to help strengthen their DRM activities while still protecting consumers’ privacy and preserving their video viewing experiences.”
