With VO’s solution, we can satisfy the consumer demand for high-quality streaming in the living room while meeting content protection requirements.”

Activated in the launcher of Android TV STBs, the solution ensures content protection with rights and device management capabilities that allow FPT Play to authenticate devices and fully control IPTV channel access. As a cloud-based solution, the Widevine CAS powered by VO accelerates the launch of new IPTV services. Additionally, VO’s solution enables fast zapping, empowering FPT Play to deliver an outstanding-quality service and ensure maximum subscriber satisfaction.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Viaccess-Orca on this deployment and showcase the benefits of using our world-class Widevine CAS integrated with VO’s security know-how and holistic security services,” said Brian Baker, Director of Product Management at Widevine. “Secure streaming is crucial today, and with our solution FPT can have the peace of mind that their content is protected.”
