Viaccess-Orca (VO), Wiztivi and EKT have collaborated to create an end-to-end (E2E) OTT multiscreen and IPTV solution for pay-TV operators and service providers.

"It is challenging to deliver content to a growing number of connected devices over different delivery networks. On top of it all, today's pay-TV operators must also provide an exceptional user experience to stand apart from the competition," said Chem Assayag, EVP Marketing and Sales at Viaccess-Orca. "Partnering with Wiztivi and EKT, we've simplified the management and delivery of next-generation OTT and IPTV services, enabling pay-TV operators to drive new revenue streams and increase viewer satisfaction by making the TV experience feature-rich, personalized, and consistent across screens."

The joint multiplatform and multiscreen TV and DVB hybrid solution enables operators to dramatically speed up the time-to-market for services and meet next-generation user experience expectations. Seamless integration has been achieved between VO's TV Platform, on premise and cloud; Wiztivi TIMELESSUI® cross-platform UI solution; and EKT Solid TV STB solutions. Stringent deployment timelines can be easily attained through a combination of VO's TV Platform and TIMELESSUI portability to virtually any targeted environment, including iOS®, Android™, and EKT STB. Portability guarantees the same user interface and user experience across devices including smartphones, tablets, PCs, STBs, and connected TVs.

Viaccess-Orca's TV Platform delivers TV services to any device across any network, enabling operators to manage, deliver, and monetize multiscreen content easily. The TV Platform includes functionalities for content, service delivery, customer, and device management; content discovery and personalization; content protection; and advanced TV analytics. VO's TV Platform can be deployed on premise or in the cloud.

"As the video services market evolves toward video consumption anywhere and anytime, the rise of OTT services presents an opportunity for pay-TV operators and service providers to enhance their value proposition and for content distributors to increase their revenue," said Manuel Dujardin, CTO at Wiztivi. "We are proud of this partnership, which showcases how agnostic Wiztivi's technology is with VO's cloud platform, enabling a quick time-to-market for IPTV and OTT offerings on a modular UI portal increasing ARPU."

Combining the power of IPTV/OTT and existing DVB infrastructures into a single STB platform, EKT's solidTV STB enables operators to meet the television requirements of today and tomorrow. Based on Linux and Android, EKT's STB is well suited for every market segment, delivering a user experience with minimal investment.

"We strongly believe in a solid partnership that brings the experts together in one seamless integrated solution," said Richard Smith, CEO of EKT. "Viaccess-Orca, Wiztivi, and EKT have made a three-way commitment to bring a ready-to-deploy solution to market. This best-in-class combination improves time to market, user experience, and monetization possibilities with a future-proof feature list."

The new solution will be demonstrated at ANGA COM 2018 at the Wiztivi Booth L61 in Hall 8.
