PARIS — Sept. 12, 2019 — Viaccess-Orca (VO), a global leader providing OTT and TV platforms, content protection, and advanced data solutions, announced today that it is powering a new NPVR service for Orange Poland in partnership with Broadpeak, a leading provider of CDN and video-streaming solutions. VO's Service Delivery Platform (SDP) has been integrated with Broadpeak's CloudPVR solution, enabling Orange Poland to launch NPVR, catch-up TV, and start-over features on set-top boxes (STBs) and iOS and Android™ devices, with a fast time to market.

"Within the Polish TV market, there's a high consumer demand for NPVR capabilities. To be competitive, we needed to introduce an NPVR service quickly and cost-effectively," said Piotr Jaworski, CTO at Orange Poland. "VO and Broadpeak joined forces, creating a simple and efficient solution for managing and delivering NPVR. Being able to launch this new NPVR offering in just eight months, from kickoff to commercial launch, is a huge benefit for us as it enables our subscribers to enjoy the content they love more comfortably and intensively."

VO's SDP enables Orange Poland to manage subscribers and service delivery efficiently from a single platform whilst reducing costs. Using the comprehensive capabilities offered by VO's SDP, Orange Poland can effectively manage the limits on the number of recordings, storage, and time duration, which are critical to a successful NPVR service. Broadpeak's CloudPVR solution includes the BkM100 to manage recordings and the BkS350 origin packager to ingest and record ABR live streams. The BkS350 also records live content in one video format and then packages and encrypts it on the fly in any ABR format, providing massive storage savings.

"Orange Poland is the fastest-growing pay-TV operator in Poland," said Jacques Le Mancq, CEO, Broadpeak. "We are extremely proud to build, together with VO, a solution that delivers Orange Poland's vision for the future of television."

"Today, users want the flexibility to watch television shows at any time, and services like NPVR are a great way for operators to address those subscribers' demands," said Paul Molinier, Viaccess-Orca CEO. "Working with Broadpeak, we're helping Orange Poland to communicate and interact with audiences on all devices and deliver personalised recordings, including programs that have already been broadcast, improving audience engagement."

VO will demonstrate its SDP and other solutions at IBC2019 at Stand 1.A51. To set up a meeting and to learn more, click here: https://www.viaccess-orca.com/what-s-new/events/ibc-2019.
