French content protection provider Viaccess-Orca has deployed its VO Player to net+, enabling the Swiss platform operator to launch a new OTT multiscreen service.
Using VO’s multi-platform secure video player which includes DRM for video-on-demand and live content, net+ can deliver a unified viewer experience across Android and iOS devices, as well as on PCs and Macs via web browsers, according to Viaccess-Orca. The VO Player is compliant with the DVB-Sub subtitle format, allowing the operator to reuse subtitle tracks of existing video content and legacy stream generation systems.
“Competition amongst OTT providers is intense. To monetise our multiscreen offering, we needed a secure video player that allows us to deliver popular programming, including advanced capabilities like time-shift TV and graphical subtitles, with a short time to market,” said Romain Lonfat, Head of TV at netplus.ch SA. “VO Player, combined with support from Viaccess-Orca’s DevOps organisation, perfectly suits our requirement for a high-quality video player with a responsive technology service team.”
The VO Player offers integration with Verimatrix ViewRight Web and additional protection such as screen casting and recording securities. This enables net+ to meet security requirements from content owners including major Hollywood studios and sports federations like the NHL and focus on content discovery and delivery, while VO manages secure content consumption on multiple devices.
