Orange France has chosen an NPVR solution from Viaccess-Orca (VO) to peronalise its viewer experience.
VO’s Service Delivery Platform (SDP) features advanced capabilities that enable Orange France subscribers to schedule and record linear channels from any device. By storing recordings in the cloud, VO will drastically reduce the operator’s storage costs while ensuring the best viewer experience.
Commenting on the development, Christian Bombrun, executive VP, product services at Orange France and EVP Orange Content, said: “NPVR is a must-have feature today for pay-TV services. It gives viewers the flexibility to record, watch, and resume their favorite television program anytime, anywhere, from any screen.
“VO is our partner because of their extensive technology know-how and deployment expertise in NPVR. As a global provider of TV platforms to millions of customers and devices, VO offers an extensive ecosystem of partners and integration plug-ins, enabling us to deliver outstanding TV experiences”.
Yvonnick Boursier, TV technical director at Orange France, added: “VO’s platform is everything we need in a NPVR solution: it’s easy to customise and manages the recording of content in the network, which is critical for cost efficiency.
“Since VO’s SDP is based on a microservices architecture, it assures high performance and scalability”.
Philippe Leonetti, CEO of Viaccess-Orca, said: “Television viewers today expect a rich viewing experience, with innovative features like NPVR.
“With multi-DRM support, our SDP simplifies subscriber management for Orange France, enabling them to handle consumption rights on multiple devices, including STBs, smartphones, and tablets, within each household. Recording and watching a television program is intuitive for viewers with our platform, which is important for increasing customer satisfaction and reducing churn.”
