The “Made by Vietnam” solutions from Thudo Multimedia have made a notable creative impact in recent years, particularly in the OTT (Over-The-Top) field, with a strong focus on two main product lines.

The first is the Sigma DAI/SSAI solution, which enables online television and video service providers to insert advertisements into video content at the server level before it is delivered to viewers’ devices. This optimization ensures a smooth and uninterrupted viewing experience by delivering ads seamlessly within the original content. Additionally, Sigma DAI/SSAI by Thudo provides detailed ad performance monitoring capabilities, allowing advertisers and service providers to gain a deeper understanding of how viewers interact with advertisements.

The second solution is the Sigma DRM (Digital Rights Management).

Recognizing this significant issue, the talented team at Thudo Multimedia introduced the Sigma DRM solution, designed to safeguard intellectual property rights and prevent unauthorized duplication and distribution of digital content. This solution has been certified by Cartesian to meet international standards, and Thudo Multimedia takes pride in being the first and only Vietnamese company, the sole Southeast Asian company, and one of only six Asian companies to attain this certification.
