Viaccess-Orca Joins Forces With Zodiac Systems, Enabling Advanced Services on Existing STBs

Viaccess-Orca (VO), a global leader providing OTT and TV platforms, content protection, and advanced data solutions, announced today that it has partnered with Zodiac Systems, a global leader in cloud and device video service-delivery software. The partnership will offer a joint solution making it easier and more cost-effective for TV operators to deploy VO’s cloud-hosted TVaaS and Service Delivery Platform (SDP) with existing legacy STBs. The Zodiac Stack device software and Matrix cloud integration platform support both legacy and next-generation environments, empowering service providers to rapidly deliver feature-rich content on every screen. With the jointly designed solution, any STB — including IPTV, hybrid, cable, and OTT — can be connected to VO’s SDP and TVaaS. The Zodiac Stack currently supports a growing list of over 150 STB models, making this solution more attractive over time. The comprehensive solution also acts as a cloud integration platform for any existing CAS/DRM or any other BSS/OSS system, enabling service providers to retain their existing third-party vendor ecosystem once integrated with Zodiac Matrix. “The combined VO and Zodiac solution simplifies back-end migrations, allowing operators to provide a blend of services across STBs, smoothly handling the transition between existing backends and the SDP, whether on-premises or cloud-hosted,” said Derek Harrar, CEO at Zodiac Systems. “By enabling computational off-loading into the cloud, the solution opens up the possibility of launching new services on lower-end devices, which is an exciting opportunity for service providers.” The Zodiac Stack device software and Matrix cloud integration platform target any STB, no matter how old. In fact, STBs over 10 years old have successfully been integrated with VO’s TV platform, so that all subscribers, even those with vintage STBs, can benefit from new features like advanced search, VOD, catch-up TV, NPVR, and advanced advertising models. Combined, the Zodiac Stack and Matrix include all necessary components that integrate with the target device’s hardware abstraction layer and the device drivers to enable customization, innovation, and feature replacement in the future. “The jointly developed solution delivers an unprecedented value proposition for operators, helping them reduce churn by enhancing the user experience across the entire installed base of legacy STBs. Now, they can also easily launch attractive new services offered by VO’s TV platform, including browser-based applications and popular OTT services,” said Pierre-Alexandre Bidard, Vice President, Marketing Security and Partnerships at VO. “By extending the lifespan of the STBs, our solution helps operators maximize ROI and reduce support costs while providing uniform consistency across the installed base of devices.”

Using the pre-integrated solution, service providers can generate revenues through data and inventory monetization, in particular, for linear multicast and on-demand TV. The solution notably allows the creation of granular audience segments leveraging VO’s AI-enriched TV data-management capabilities and the activation of these segments on Smart’s advertising platform. It further allows the distribution of targeted ads on any screen through VO’s secure player, which offers versatile ad replacement and insertion capabilities. “Leveraging Smart’s and VO’s unique awareness around data privacy and security aspects, service providers can now enjoy new revenue channels generated by our targeted TV advertising solution while keeping control over vital data assets,” said Romain Job, Chief Strategy Officer at Smart Adserver. “This alliance between two recognized specialists allows service providers to access a single, preintegrated solution for managing ad campaigns, activating audience data, and distributing targeted ads on any device, including on the fast-growing Android TV-enabled market segment.” The end-to-end solution supports the entire targeted ad cycle and offers seamless integration with Smart’s programmatic advertising environment. This includes data management enablers that are natively compliant with GDPR regulations and ensures full-service provider control from segment creation to monetization. In particular, VO’s behavioral insights on TV-usage data, the results of VO’s extensive AI research, provide an elegant and innovative route to TV audience monetization while alleviating reliance on legacy, controversial, third-party, data-based targeting techniques. The solution’s holistic ad monetization capabilities also cover cross-channel advertising, from direct IO management to programmatic transactions. It also supports KPI-focused advertising implementations, with real-time ad analytics to evaluate the effectiveness of ads and make advertising content as relevant as possible to the audience. VO’s playback solutions, combined with Smart’s performance optimization techniques including peak management, ad-call pacing, local creative storage, validation, and provisioning, enable targeted ad delivery for any TV use case (e.g. linear, on-demand, or catch-up) onto any device (including Android TV-enabled) over IPTV or OTT. “Targeted TV advertising is a huge revenue opportunity for operators and broadcasters that can help turn viewers’ experiences into personal ones, thereby driving higher engagement,” said Alain Nochimowski, Executive Vice President of Innovation at Viaccess-Orca. “This partnership between two mature technology providers results in an easy, fast, and secure way to enter the targeted TV advertising market and generate a new line of revenue.

Broadpeak’s CloudPVR solution includes the BkM100 to manage recordings and the BkS350 origin packager to ingest and record ABR live streams. The BkS350 also records live content in one video format and then packages and encrypts it on the fly in any ABR format, providing massive storage savings. “Orange Poland is the fastest-growing pay-TV operator in Poland,” said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO, Broadpeak. “We are extremely proud to build, together with VO, a solution that delivers Orange Poland’s vision for the future of television.” “Today, users want the flexibility to watch television shows at any time, and services like NPVR are a great way for operators to address those subscribers’ demands,” said Paul Molinier, Viaccess-Orca CEO. “Working with Broadpeak, we’re helping Orange Poland to communicate and interact with audiences on all devices and deliver personalized recordings, including programs that have already been broadcast, improving audience engagement.”
