b<>com and VO partner to detect video piracy

May 16, 2019

In order to develop technologies that protect video content, Viaccess-Orca (VO), a subsidiary of the Orange Group, is joining b<>com. The first step in this long-term partnership is a unique innovation in watermarking that tracks pirates who redistribute illegal streaming services.

The arrival of Viaccess-Orca strengthens our strategy and will enable us to define a broader ambition and provide cutting-edge technologies more quickly on a market that is changing at lightning speed,” says Bertrand Guilbaud, CEO of b<>com.

“Content protection is critical for Viaccess-Orca. The emergence of new forms of piracy such as live restreaming of content on the internet means that we need to provide suitable solutions to our clients. This collaboration with b<>com is even more important for Viaccess-Orca in order to offer more innovative anti-piracy services that fit into our broader content security product offering and meet the expectations of content providers and rights-owners,” adds Paul Molinier, CEO of Viaccess-Orca.
