Content Protection Playout Orange has launched an OTT multiscreen service in France using Viaccess-Orca’s Voyage - TV Everywhere technology which includes its RiGHTv unified service delivery platform. RiGHTv allows users to deliver a wide range of content services, including live television, video-on-demand and catch-up TV on any OTT screen. “When you are dealing with millions of subscribers, multiple device types, and a variety of equipment in a highly complex ecosystem, simplicity and flexibility are both essential,” said Emmanuel Bidet, senior vice president of DTRS, Orange. “Viaccess- Orca’s Voyage solution, with RiGHTv as its core, dramatically streamlines OTT multiscreen delivery by facilitating the transition from two different legacy service platforms to a single unified platform.” Using RiGHTv, Orange will have the ability to manage content, users, and service for all devices (smartphones, tablets, PCs, and game consoles) from a single platform, eliminating the complexity typically involved with OTT multiscreen delivery. Systems integration and technical support services was provided by Cap Gemini. Arkena, the global media services business, is using BroadStream Solutions’ OASYS integrated playout technology to provide its European customers with a range of new playout-related services. Arkena, formerly known as TDF Media Services, supports media and telecoms companies, content owners and enterprise clients manage, in their quest to adapt and deliver video content. Mickael Drouet, vice president of broadcast engineering at Arkena, said: “We undertook a benchmark study and evaluated a range of the Channel in a Box solutions available, but when we came across BroadStreams OASYS product we knew we’d found the right solution for us. We initially used it for a number of smaller existing customers and it worked so well that we have begun migrating larger channel customers too.” Arkena and BroadStream are currently testing a proof of concept that will enable the business to run an OASYS infrastructure in Poland, managing the playout from its French office. Mark Errington, the chief executive of BroadStream, said: “At BroadStream, we have always believed in developing systems that are quick to deploy, cost-effective and scalable, offering businesses like Arkena a solution that doesn’t just work, but can work towards building and growing its business.” 34 | KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 99 MARCH 2015
