Viaccess-Orca (VO), a global leader providing OTT and TV platforms, content protection, and advanced data solutions, announced today that Orange France is personalizing the viewer experience with VO’s Service Delivery Platform (SDP). VO’s SDP features advanced NPVR capabilities that enable Orange France subscribers to schedule and record linear channels from any device. By storing recordings in the cloud, VO drastically reduces the operator’s storage costs while ensuring the best viewer experience.
"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," said Christian Bombrun, Executive Vice President, Product Services at Orange France and EVP Orange Content. "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."
"VO’s platform is everything we need in a NPVR solution: it’s easy to customize and manages the recording of content in the network, which is critical for cost efficiency," said Yvonnick Boursier, TV Technical Director at Orange France. "Since VO’s SDP is based on a microservices architecture, it assures high performance and scalability."
VO’s TV platform optimizes NPVR storage consumption using a shared copy method, on-the-fly packaging capabilities, and automatic recording deletion with easy recovery in case of unintentional unsubscription. The SDP reduces capex for the operator by eliminating the need for a storage disk.
"Television viewers today expect a rich viewing experience, with innovative features like NPVR," said Philippe Leonetti, CEO of Viaccess-Orca. "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."
