Orange Spain has deployed a new Android set-top box secured by Viaccess-Orca’s (VO’s) DRM solution for its IPTV service.
The new box will allow Orange Spain pay-TV subscribers to access a wide range of premium content, including Ultra HD, live and VOD.
Commenting on the development, José Antonio Guzmán, director of Orange TV at Orange Spain, said: “Android TV offers a quick time-to-market for new services and a rich set of applications, which is exactly the type of experience we want to provide to our subscribers. The key is ensuring that content is well protected.
“VO’s DRM relies on powerful hardware-based content protection mechanisms, allowing us to meet the most demanding studio security requirements in the world.”
Paul Molinier, CEO of Viaccess-Orca, added: “Content security requirements are continuously changing and increasing in complexity, and VO’s wide range of security services and solutions are made to address these challenges. Our DRM solution ensures that operators can deliver a rich offering in any ecosystem, including Android TV.
“VO DRM is available on Android TV STBs from a variety of manufacturers, and we have significant deployment expertise in this environment, making us attractive to operators like Orange Spain that want to quickly launch and monetise a new television offering.”
VO will demonstrate the solution deployed at Orange Spain at IBC 2019 Stand 1.A51.
