Mongolia’s Mongolsat Networks Optimizes Multi-Screen Video Delivery with Verimatrix and moTV.eu www.finance.yahoo.com
BroadcastAsia 2019 -- Verimatrix (INSD.PA), the leader in redefining the standard for connected devices and services with an innovative combination of security and data analytics, and moTV.eu today announced that they are jointly securing DVB-S delivery services offered by Mongolsat Networks. Leveraging the moTV.eu OTT/IPTV/hybrid platform, the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS™) DVB Hybrid deployment protects Mongolsat’s Freeview TV service to set-top boxes (STBs). Additionally, the Verimatrix MultiRights® OTT solution enables advanced TV Everywhere delivery by providing digital rights management (DRM) for OTT content streamed to mobile devices.
VCAS for DVB Hybrid enables Mongolsat Networks to deploy a modern broadcast video system that extends subscriber reach by integrating premium OTT delivery through HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) and MPEG-DASH protocols. It is also completely compliant with applicable DVB standards and pre-integrated with a broad range of headend and major STB chipset vendors.
“In order to respond to the rapidly rising demands for multi-screen delivery in the Mongolian pay-TV space, we knew we needed to find a flexible and scalable platform for multi-DRM support, but we were also looking for a vendor that we could fully trust,” said Mr. Bumchin N, general manager at Mongolsat Networks. “Verimatrix came to the forefront due to its outstanding and reaffirmed reputation for providing a modernized and adaptable approach to security. We are excited to be among those who are able to quickly react to changing security models with VCAS.”
The addition of MultiRights OTT enables Mongolsat Networks to solve multi-DRM challenges by providing harmonized rights management across networks and devices. The framework allows for the inclusion of any third-party DRM scheme and client devices under the VCAS umbrella for complete end-to-end management of revenue security.
“Maximizing the monetization of content across a multi-screen delivery environment comes with several challenges, and Mongolsat Networks selected Verimatrix as we are able to future-proof its services for years to come with this comprehensive VCAS deployment,” said Steve Oetegenn, COO of Verimatrix. “This single content authority approach eliminates technical and commercial challenges of extending DVB Hybrid services, so that Mongolsat can maintain its focus on expanding business models and staying ahead of competition.”
moTV.eu, the systems integrator for this deployment, develops complete end-to-end ecosystems for pay-TV operators from the source of the stream through transcoding up to the end-user applications.
“moTV.eu is happy to support Mongolsat Networks in its expansion to offer OTT services for second screen devices, working alongside Verimatrix. Mongolsat’s subscribers will have options to view their favorite channels not only on linear services, but also using catchup, time-shift and VOD,” said Radim Benovsky, sales director, moTV.eu

The European Union (EU), together with its Mongolian partners, has successfully implemented a joint project aimed at enhancing and strengthening the nuclear safety and safeguards regulatory framework in Mongolia in accordance with the highest standards of safety and best international practice adopted in the EU.
This €1.1 million project was financed through the EU’s Instrument for Nuclear Safety Cooperation (INSC). Within its framework, implemented in close cooperation with the Executive Office of the Nuclear Energy Commission, extensive knowledge transfer, including on-the-job training in the EU, exchanges of methods, know-how and best practices took place over a period of 32 months in the following areas:
Strengthen regulatory framework and infrastructure to ensure the safety and security of radioactive sources;
Assessment of national arrangements and infrastructure for radioactive waste management;
Establish a long-term safe management plan for a damaged irradiator;
Establish national system for accounting and control of nuclear materials;
Development of regulatory framework for management of naturally occurring radioactive materials;
Developed radiation emergency preparedness and response plan.
Mr Traian Laurentiu HRISTEA, Ambassador of the EU Delegation to Mongolia, highlighted: “The European Union is a close partner to Mongolia in a wide number of development cooperation areas including in the promotion of the application of best international standards and practice for nuclear safety and safeguards. We hope this knowledge transfer between the EU and Mongolia as facilitated by the project will contribute to more effective regulatory framework development and implementation in Mongolia."
Mr. G. MANLAIJAV, Secretary of the Nuclear Energy Commission and Head of the Executive Office, said: “Nuclear Energy Commission, which has the responsibility for coordination and formulation of activities related to nuclear and radiation issues in Mongolia, must always increase its capacity to the world level. The cooperation project funded by the European Union and implemented by RISKAUDIT and its consortium partners over 32 months is very beneficial for Mongolia, specifically to adopt several aspects of regulation implemented in the European Union, covering technical aspects related to nuclear safety, as well as the managerial aspects such as the management systems and human resource development."
The project was implemented by a consortium of Paris-based RISKAUDIT as consortium leader, German companies WISUTEC and GRS, and the Ministry of Health of Luxembourg.
Following the Chornobyl accident in 1986, the EU launched a nuclear safety programme under the TACIS (Technical Assistance to the Commonwealth of Independent States) which, between 1991 and 2006, allocated some €1.3 billion to nuclear safety and security projects.
From 2007 to 2013, the EU expanded its nuclear safety assistance to third countries under the Instrument for Nuclear Safety Cooperation with a total budget allocation of €524 million. In June 2014, the strategy for the implementation of Phase 2 of the INSC (2014-2020) was agreed, committing an extra €225 million for nuclear safety projects.
Cooperation with Mongolia began in 2011, and to date, about €2.1 million has been committed for Mongolia under the INSC. Further cooperation with Mongolia is planned at regional level in the area of monitoring capacities of Mongolian laboratories.
Establishing effective cooperation between Mongolian and European regulatory authorities is contributing to the development of a common understanding in implementing requirements, standards and international best practice in nuclear safety.
In the completed project “Regulatory Regime for Nuclear Safety and Enhancing Radiation Safety and Nuclear Safeguards in Mongolia”, approximately 20 highly experienced EU and Mongolian technical and scientific experts were involved to assist the regulatory authority in the development of regulations, technical guidelines on radioactive waste management, safeguards, search and identification of orphan radioactive sources, management of naturally occurring radioactive materials, emergency preparedness and response, and other areas.
In order to optimise know-how transfer to the Mongolian organisations, several training courses were organised, both in Ulaanbaatar and abroad, including Hungary, Germany, Luxembourg, and France.
Specifically, the following results have been achieved under the project in close collaboration of the European and Mongolian experts:
Development of draft regulations, as well as guidelines to support the implementation of the regulations. The drafts will be made publicly available for review and comment by NEC at their website http://www.nea.gov.mn;
Development of human resources at NEC and General Agency for Specialized Inspection (GASI), and improvement of the knowledge and skills required to effectively implement the regulatory framework;

BEIJING - The global market for mobile artificial intelligence (AI) chips is expected to reach $3.8 billion in 2022, a tenfold growth from the 2017 figure, said a white paper.
The market expansion is driven by the fast development of AI industry, as AI chips saw rapid penetration into the terminal sector, said the white paper on mobile AI technologies and application released by the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT).
AI development will also drive innovation of the mobile chip industry, said the white paper, citing Strategic Analytics data, which showed that the market share of smartphone apps processors with on-device AI in the first quarter of 2018 grew threefold from the same period of previous year.
In 2017, the global market for mobile AI chips stood at $370 million, accounting for 9.5 percent of the global AI chip market and indicating huge potential, according to the white paper.
The growing momentum of mobile AI chips has attracted tech giants including Google, Facebook, Alibaba and Tencent, intensifying the ongoing market competition, it said.
China, a latecomer in the traditional chip industry, has made an early start in tapping the emerging market of intelligent chips, the report said.
Amid the ongoing trade war with the US, the Chinese development and reform commission is currently developing new state policies on rare earth metals, and intends to make them public as soon as possible.
The spokeswoman for the Chinese state planning agency NDRC, Meng Wei, did not provide any further details at a Monday press conference.
Beijing’s veiled threats to restrict exports of rare earth metals to the US have been called by many as one of China's nuclear options in a trade conflict with Washington. The US relies on China for about 80 percent of its rare earths supplies. The metals are used in everything from electric car motors and electronics to oil refining. They are also vital for US national security, as they are used in many major weapons systems.
Washington has reportedly started exploring opportunities to purchase rare earth metals from African countries, but they cannot provide the volume that China can. Beijing's reserves account for roughly 30 percent of the world's total, and the country dominates global supply chain as it produces more than 80 percent of them.
Rare earth metals are a group of 17 chemical elements, namely gadolinium, holmium, dysprosium, europium, ytterbium, lutetium, neodymium, praseodymium, promethium, samarium, terbium, thulium, cerium, erbium, scandium, yttrium and lanthanum. Technically they are not rare but very difficult to find in large concentrations, and hard to process as the ores often contain naturally occurring radioactive materials.
Japan's foreign minister has asked his Mongolian counterpart for help in resolving the issue of Japanese nationals kidnapped by North Korea.
Taro Kono and Damdin Tsogtbaatar held talks in Ulaanbaatar. Kono is the first Japanese Foreign Minister to visit Mongolia in nine years. The nation has longstanding friendly ties with North Korea.
Kono told Tsogtbaatar that Japan would like a summit with North Korea and has no preconditions for the meeting.
Tsogtbaatar showed his understanding of Japan's stance and agreed to cooperate.
The two ministers agreed on the importance of fully implementing UN Security Council's sanctions to make Pyongyang abandon its nuclear and missile programs.
North Korea launched short-range missiles last month.
Kono said in a joint press release that Japan will continue to stand with the people of Mongolia.
He expressed hope that the two countries will further boost their strategic partnership.
Ulaanbaatar/MONTSAME/. At the opening of Khaan Quest-2019 held at the Five Hills Training Area on June 14, President and Commander-In-Chief of the Mongolian Armed Forces Kh.Battulga delivered a speech.
President Kh.Battulga said, "Peacekeeping mission has still remained one of the significant means to conduct various assignments ceasing armed conflicts, protecting the civilians, conducting disaster relief and rescue operations, providing humanitarian assistance, and rendering rehabilitation activities.
As a peace-prioritizing and a full-fledged member of the international community, Mongolia has been sending our Armed Forces to peacekeeping missions since 2002. Concurrently 17 thousand service members have served in the missions.
Peacekeeping is a tough job that requires training, endurance, courage, agility and skills. Constant training of the peacekeeping personnel allows to increase the mission execution capability and minimize the possible risks. Also it has extensive benefit to strengthen inter-operability and mutual understanding.
“Khaan Quest 2019” exercise is co-organized with the US Indo-Pacific Command and “Global Peace Initiative” program. I believe that this annual exercise would be beneficial for the peacekeepers to improve the professional skills, courtesy, discipline, knowledge, experience, and endurance.
I would like to wish the best success for the blue helmets who have the global efforts towards peace for the 17th iteration of “Khaan Quest” exercise.
May world peace be strengthened and nations be in peace!”
Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ On June 16, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Japan Taro Kono, who is visiting Mongolia, paid a courtesy call on Prime Minister of Mongolia U.Khurelsukh.
At the beginning of the meeting, PM U.Khurelsukh briefed about policies of the Government of Mongolia on economy and cooperation. Moreover, the PM said the Government of Mongolia would pay attention on increasing benefits of Economic Partnership Agreement, promoting free trade cooperation agreement as well as participating in understanding between the United Nations and Japan from an active position.
Expressing gratitude to PM U.Khurelsukh, Mr. Taro Kono noted that the two countries have been actively collaborating in the fields of foreign policy, security, defense, education and health. "Therefore, I believe that selecting Mongolia as one of workforce importers would become an impetus to broaden the scope of bilateral ties and cooperation," added Mr. Taro Kono.
Following the meeting, PM U.Khurelsukh and Foreign Minister of Japan Taro Kono attended the inauguration ceremony of Mongolia-Japan Teaching Hospital at the Mongolian National University of Medical Sciences, built with non-refundable aid of the Government of Japan.
Presidents of China, Russia and Mongolia pledged to strengthen trilateral cooperation during their meeting here on Friday.
The trilateral meeting, the fifth of its kind, among Chinese President Xi Jinping, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Mongolian President Khaltmaa Battulga was held on the sidelines of the 19th Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit.
The heads of state reviewed the achievements of trilateral cooperation and discussed the overall plan for the next phase.
Since the last gathering of the heads of state in China’s eastern port city of Qingdao last year, the three sides have maintained close communication and cooperation, and the trilateral cooperation has gradually developed, said Xi.
Noting that this year marks the 70th anniversary of the China-Russia and China-Mongolia diplomatic relations, Xi said China will hold celebrations with the two countries respectively.
Against the backdrop of rising protectionism and unilateralism, the three countries need to firmly promote regional cooperation and achieve common development, he said.
They should focus on the alignment of the three countries’ development strategies, promote comprehensive cooperation in all fields, and jointly release the positive signal of maintaining multilateralism and creating an open world economy, said Xi.
For the next phase, the three sides should deepen political mutual trust, increase mutual support, respect each other’s core interests, and strengthen coordination and cooperation in international and regional affairs, Xi stressed.
The Chinese president said the three countries should promote the implementation of cooperative projects within the framework of the China-Mongolia-Russia Economic Corridor, promote customs facilitation measures, upgrade major ports, and deepen sub-national cooperation.
The cooperation and coordination within the framework of the SCO should be expanded, said Xi.
Putin said Russia is committed to deepening its relations with China and Mongolia on the basis of mutual respect, equality and mutual benefit, and is ready to step up cooperation to promote the synergy between the Eurasian Economic Union, the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative, and Mongolia’s Steppe Road program.
He also called on the three parties to enhance inter-connectivity in transportation, expand trade, and bolster cooperation in energy and finance.
Battulga said it is Mongolia’s unswerving policy to deepen the friendly cooperation with China and Russia, adding that his country is committed to pushing forward the trilateral cooperation and the construction of the China-Mongolia-Russia Economic Corridor.
He called on the three sides to set up institutional arrangements so as to accelerate the construction of a network of cross-border highways, facilitate customs clearance, strengthen energy cooperation, and discuss the construction of regional power grids....
