Viaccess-Orca has become the latest company to declare itself in the launch of new OTT services by Orange Belgium.
VO’s Secure Video Player has been deployed on the operator’s new set-top boxes and mobile apps. The VO Player allows Orange Belgium to comply with content owners’ security requirements. It’s pre-integrated with a wide array of third-party encoders, packagers, analytics, advertising, app vendors, and CDN.
“We selected Viaccess-Orca as our strategic partner based on their expertise in OTT content protection while enabling superior viewing experiences,” said Guillaume Ducellier, TV Domain Manager at Orange Belgium. “With the VO Player we can deliver an exceptional-quality TV experience to customers on TV decoders and OTT apps, as well as a slimmed-down Orange TV Lite service that includes live OTT channels and nPVR.”
“The VO Player is a critical component not only to deliver an outstanding quality of experience but also to fulfil evolving Belgian advertising regulations, including the recent ad-skipping policies. By porting the same code across devices, the VO Player ensures a unified experience,” added Benoit Brieussel, Vice President of Product at Viaccess-Orca.
We also know that set-top boxes for Orange Belgium have been provided by Commscope, while Zappware contributed its AndroidTV Operator Tier solution. The next-generation TV decoders presents a ‘reinvented’ TV experience that includes new integrated apps for local broadcasters VRT NU, RTBF Auvio, VTM GO and RTL Play.
