DEEP: Best Content Platform of the Year | Viaccess-Orca Blog

Wed, Nov 6, 2013 | by Efrat Fenigson


By now, everyone has come to realize that second screen is creating new ways to engage with content. In many cases the line between second screen and social TV seems blurred. Can you really blame anyone who might consider the terms synonymous, especially when they are often used interchangeably? Second screen-exclusive capabilities, such as mobility, connectivity and enrichment via internet, serve as the differentiating factor. Such capabilities have paved the way to widespread success and demand amongst viewers worldwide. During the last five years in particular, the rise of the second screen dramatically enhanced the elements which make up the ultimate content experience.

CEO Insight: The Engagement Model Comes to Life at IBC 2013 | Viaccess-Orca Blog

Mon, Sep 9, 2013 | by François Moreau de Saint-Martin


In my previous post, I highlighted the importance of looking at the content experience from the customers’ perspective. This was a point of focus at the TV Leaders Summit (TVLS) in Athens. One of the main attractions at TVLS was the engagement model, and our team is now ready to demonstrate it once again at IBC 2013.

It all starts with the quality of the content itself. For viewers, premium content, such as major sport events, great movies and hard-to-miss TV series, is the most valuable and engaging. To monetize premium content, content service   providers need to implement business rules and protect content from threats of piracy.
