It’s smarter. It’s safer. It’s VO.

The video market is ever-evolving, and consumer demand for TV Everywhere services, including personalized content and recommendations, is growing rapidly. In parallel, as new forms of video piracy constantly emerge, security requirements remain as critical as ever. To succeed, openness is key. Operators need solutions that are open, flexible, and compatible with other technologies; that can quickly adapt to the evolving TV landscape; keep premium content safe; and address consumers’ privacy concerns.

At IBC2019, Viaccess-Orca (VO) will showcase its end-to-end anti-piracy services, as well as its targeted advertising and TV platform solutions, which enable operators to provide a smarter and safer digital TV and OTT experience.

Meet VO and discover the latest solutions at Stand 1.A51:

Fight Piracy Smarter With VO’s New Anti-Piracy Center 

The nature of piracy is changing, and operators need to react instantly to security threats, especially when delivering premium video content and live sports events. At IBC2019, VO will demonstrate its new Anti-Piracy Center, a comprehensive set of security services that enable operators to fight piracy from every point of attack ­by assessing the security, monitoring the threats, identifying the source of piracy, and taking counteractions.

With its Anti-Piracy Center, VO’s security experts combat the next era of piracy on behalf of operators: premium content restreaming. From its operating center, VO monitors and prevents pirates from hacking the content distribution chain, starting with the service delivery platform to the end-user device. At IBC2019, attendees will see the complete range of services that the Anti-Piracy Center provides, including device assessment, dynamic watermarking developed in collaboration with b<>com, an intrusion detection system, and password-sharing identification, leveraging the latest advancements in AI and data analytics to fight piracy.

As a managed service, VO’s Anti-Piracy Center eliminates the need for operators to invest in complicated technologies or to constantly train security teams.
