PARIS — Nov. 17, 2021 — Viaccess-Orca (VO), a global leader providing OTT and TV platforms, content protection, and advanced data solutions, announced today that in light of the recent surge in COVID-19 cases and enhanced safety restrictions in The Netherlands the company will not physically participate in IBC2021.
“This was a tough decision for us to make, but the health and safety of our employees and industry colleagues remains our top priority,” said Philippe Leonetti, CEO at Viaccess-Orca.
“With the recent rise in COVID-19 cases throughout Europe, and following the Dutch government’s Nov. 12 statement, we no longer think that we can experience a safe and successful IBC Show this year.”
VO’s original plans for the show included showcasing the latest innovations to its end-to-end TV platform and the VO Secure Video Player, as well as highlighting advanced new capabilities for its TV monitoring, Targeted TV Advertising, content protection, and anti-piracy solutions.
The hard work and investment made for the physical show will now pivot online, and the company will share these updates over the upcoming weeks via a range of digital platforms.
VO looks forward to meeting everyone face to face when conditions are more favorable.
