Recent security campaigns conducted by Viaccess-Orca detected hundreds of thousands of illegitimate viewers of 30 sporting events in EMEA, highlighting the continuous challenges raised by piracy
PARIS –3 July 2013 – Viaccess-Orca, a global leader in the protection and enhancement of content services, will showcase its engagement and security solutions at the ANGA COM Exhibition & Congress from June 4-6 in Cologne, Germany.
Viaccess-Orca’s services are designed to offer effective responses to the growing threat of content services piracy by protecting content rights, assets and revenues, all while providing smooth content delivery and an engaging, interactive customer experience.
Piracy is a constant threat for content service providers. Viaccess-Orca recently demonstrated the extent of this threat and the need for solid anti-piracy solutions by running a set of dedicated security services for a major pay-TV operator during 30 major football games televised in EMEA. These services targeted subscription sharing in the form of card sharing over the internet and control word (CW) redistribution over satellites, techniques that allow illegal distributors to resell pirate set-top-boxes or subscriptions to television bouquets at a very low price.
Viaccess-Orca’s solutions detected and stopped sharing services reaching hundreds of thousands of illegitimate end users by tracking CW redistribution over satellites via dozens of pirate set-top boxes and detecting hundreds of IP addresses that were then filtered with the cooperation of impacted internet service providers.
“The digital television market has been growing steadily over the past two decades and the number of households with digital TV is expected to reach one billion within the next five years,” said David Leporini, Executive Vice President, Marketing, Products and Security, Viaccess-Orca. “Piracy is the number one competitor to content service providers delivering exclusive content to their customers and it jeopardizes the industry as a whole. With the advent of multi-network content delivery and multi-screen content consumption, content service providers need to embrace intelligent security solutions to sustain their investments in content. and build the right foundations to fully engaging experiences to their customers.”
