Orange France embarks on connected multiscreen Voyage
Orange has launched an OTT multiscreen service in France using Viaccess-Orca’s Voyage TV Everwhere solution, with systems integration and technical support services provided by Capgemini. At the heart of Viaccess-Orca’s Voyage solution is the RIGHTv unified service delivery platform.
By providing Orange France with a highly flexible and scalable solution as well as a service platform that offers easy integration with various third-party systems, RiGHTv enables the service provider to deliver a wide range of content services, including live television, video-on-demand, and catch-up TV, to 23 million subscribers on any OTT screen, while lowering its operating expenses.
“When you are dealing with millions of subscribers, multiple device types, and a variety of equipment in a highly complex ecosystem, simplicity and flexibility are both essential,” said Emmanuel Bidet, senior vice president of DTRS, Orange. “Viaccess-Orca’s Voyage solution, with RiGHTv as its core, dramatically streamlines OTT multiscreen delivery by facilitating the transition from two different legacy service platforms to a single unified platform.”
With RiGHTv, Orange can manage content, users, and service for all devices (smartphones, tablets, PCs, and game consoles) from a single platform, eliminating the complexity typically involved with OTT multiscreen delivery. By unifying service delivery, the Viaccess-Orca platform enables Orange to support more device types, reduce costs, increase operational efficiencies, and quickly expand its service offering.
“With the arrival of OTT players, all operators are facing the same challenges in terms of rationalizing their platforms and improving the user experience on multiple devices,” said Arnaud Demesse, telecommunications and media director at Capgemini. “Viaccess-Orca has developed the best solution to meet these needs. Our partnership with Viaccess-Orca allows us to optimize OTT multiscreen delivery for operators worldwide.”
