Viaccess-Orca (VO), a global leader providing OTT and TV platforms, content protection, and advanced data solutions, announced today that 1.75 billion licenses of its multi-DRM cloud service have successfully been delivered in the last 12 months by Orange, a tier-1 telecommunications operator with 253 million customers worldwide. Orange’s massive delivery across Belgium, France, Ivory Coast, Poland, and Spain demonstrates the immense scale of VO’s multi-DRM solution for the protection of IPTV and OTT services.
“While meeting the growing consumer demand for digital content, we also need to ensure the content is well-protected,” said Christian Bombrun, Executive Vice President, Products and Services at Orange France. “Using VO’s multi-DRM cloud service, we can rapidly launch pay-TV services while meeting the stringent security requirements of the studios.”
Orange selected VO’s multi-DRM solution based on its world-renowned multiscreen security algorithms, scalable design, and its ability for quick implementation. VO’s multi-DRM solution includes support for the company’s proprietary VO DRM, as well as Microsoft PlayReady, Apple FairPlay, and Google Widevine. The cloud service has been deployed by Orange on set-top boxes, tablets, mobile devices, computers, and smart TVs, providing the operator with a scalable delivery rate of up to 1,000 licenses per second.
“VO’s multi-DRM solution passed a rigorous assessment by Cartesian and is ultra-scalable, making it the top choice for tier-1 operators like Orange, who are experiencing rapid growth,” said Philippe Leonetti, CEO of Viaccess-Orca. “Content security is complex; the fact that Orange was able to deploy billions of our multi-DRM licenses in 12 months is a testimony to the robustness and flexibility of our content security cloud service, as well as an important milestone for our company.”
