net+ Delivers First-Class OTT Multiscreen Experience With VO Player

  • Relying on the Multi-Platform Secure Video Player From VO, net+ Subscribers Can Enjoy Best-of-Breed Experiences, Including Live Sports Content, Across Tablets, Smartphones, PCs, and Macs

PARIS — Viaccess-Orca, a global leader providing OTT and TV platforms, content protection, and advanced data solutions, announced today that net+, Switzerland’s leading provider of French-speaking multimedia content, has launched its new multiscreen service powered by VO Player. VO’s multi-platform secure video player, which includes DRM for VOD and live content, enables net+ to deliver a unified viewer experience across Android™ and iOS® devices, as well as on PCs and Macs via web browsers. The VO Player is compliant with the DVB-Sub subtitle format, allowing the operator to reuse subtitle tracks of existing video content and legacy stream generation systems.

“Competition amongst OTT providers is intense. To monetize our multiscreen offering, we needed a secure video player that allows us to deliver popular programming, including advanced capabilities like time-shift TV and graphical subtitles, with a short time to market,” said Romain Lonfat, Head of TV at netplus.ch SA. “VO Player, combined with support from Viaccess-Orca’s DevOps organization, perfectly suits our requirement for a high-quality video player with a responsive technology service team.”

VO’s secure video player offers seamless integration with Verimatrix ViewRight Web and additional protection such as screen casting and recording securities. With the VO Player net+ can meet security requirements from content owners, including major Hollywood studios and sports federations like the NHL, and focus on content discovery and delivery, while VO manages secure content consumption on multiple devices.

“The OTT multiscreen environment is always changing, and it’s important that operators differentiate the user experience and ensure a fast time to market for their services,” said Benoit Brieussel, Vice President Sales Player at Viaccess-Orca. “VO’s secure video player is extremely flexible, secure, and high-performing, allowing net+ to deliver compelling experiences on all connected devices from a single platform.”

VO’s Secure Video Player will be on display in Stand 5C71 at Mobile World Congress 2018, Feb. 26 to March 1 in Barcelona.
