Olympusat partners Viaccess-Orca for TVE solution

October 30, 2014

Viaccess-Orca has revealed that Olympusat Telecom has chosen Viaccess-Orca’s Voyage – TV Everywhere Solution to support its upcoming OTT multiscreen business-to-business (B2B) service.

Olympusat Telecom is a division of Olympusat Holdings, one of the largest independent media companies that owns, operates, and represents more than 60 Spanish-language TV networks with over 10,000 hours of content. Olympusat’s selection of Voyage follows a number of successful IPTV, OTT, and DTH deployments with leading operators, including Orange in France, Spain, Poland, and Romania.

As a key ingredient for its OTT solution, Olympusat Telecom will bundle its content preparation services with content from Olympusat Holdings and Viaccess-Orca’s technology, providing operators with a single, end-to-end, cloud-based multiscreen solution designed to reduce operators’ risk and the upfront investment required to launch a multiscreen service. Utilising Voyage’s unified service delivery platform (RiGHTv) and content discovery solution (COMPASS), operators can deliver a variety of Spanish-language content, including live television, catch-up TV, and video-on-demand (VOD), to subscribers on any screen. Olympusat Telecom will also use Viaccess-Orca’s Connected Sentinel and Connected Sentinel Player to ensure secure content distribution.

Olympusat Telecom’s OTT multiscreen service offering will initially be available throughout North and South America. It will be the first live and VoD Spanish network available on Microsoft Xbox.

“Our new TVE and OTT service will enable MSOs and telco operators in the Americas to strengthen their current offering and drive the growth of broadband connectivity to end-user on a low OPEX model,” said Austin Powers, president at Olympusat Telecom. “The partnership with Viaccess-Orca, part of the Orange Group, promises to be yet another important milestone for our company.”
