Viaccess-Orca’s David Leporini to speak on illegal streaming and Big Data

Viaccess-Orca has announced that David Leporini, EVP marketing, products and security, will speak about the risk of illegal content redistribution for content service providers at IBC2015.

On Sept. 10, at 11.00am, he will give a technical presentation entitled ‘Architectures and Protocols Powering Illegal Content Streaming Over the Internet’ in the Emerald Room at the RAI Amsterdam. The presentation is part of the IBC2015 conference session ‘Paper Sessions: Big Data Applications in Broadcasting’.

Leporini’s presentation will provide insight into pirate content platforms, covering the various architectures and protocols used in this context. In addition, it will describe the methods that are generally employed to set up and scale ad-based illegal services using these protocols and streaming media platforms, while securing streaming servers. His presentation is also available to download on the Viaccess-Orca website at:

He will also participate in a panel discussion at the IBC Content Everywhere hub, Sept. 13 at 1.00pm, on the topic “What Can ‘Big Data’ Offer to Content Everywhere?” IBC Content Everywhere Europe Hub Sessions are designed to bring attendees up-to-speed with different aspects of the explosive growth in video, TV, and media consumption on IP-connected devices, while expanding their understanding of the business and technical issues at the intersection of broadcast and broadband. During the session, Leporini will discuss how user intelligence, advanced customer segmentation, and profiling can be exploited to deliver an enhanced user experience across screens, increasing customer engagement and opening up new monetisation opportunities.

“In today;s OTT multiscreen world, content service providers are challenged when it comes to ensuring maximum viewer engagement on a wide range of devices while protecting premium content,” said Leporini. “Big data has become instrumental in helping service providers address these important market issues.”

In addition to these speaking opportunities, Viaccess-Orca will host two panels at its stand. The first panel will explore the topic of cloud TV on Sept. 13 at 10:30 a.m. and will be moderated by Colin Dixon of nScreenMedia. The second panel, on security, will be Sept. 14 at 1.30pm, moderated by Rob Gallagher of Ovum. More information about the panels is available at: and
