Orange France picks Viaccess-Orca to develop new multiscreen platform

French firm Viaccess-Orca has won another TV-related contract with Orange France, this time for the development of its new multiscreen connected platform.

To wit, Viaccess-Orca’s RiGHTv Service Delivery Platform will enable the telco to offer a fully convergent service on all connected devices as part of the vendor’s TV Everywhere solution.

RiGHTv recently powered the world’s largest IPTV migration for Orange France, which started last year and is expected to be completed with 3.8mn subscribers using the platform across a number of access technologies including satellite and IPTV.

“With an average of five connected devices per household and 27 million subscribers, Orange has quite a few million devices that people are using for content consumption,” said Haggai Barel, Deputy CEO of Viaccess-Orca.

“The VO service delivery platform enables services such as live TV, video on demand (VOD), Shifted TV and Catch-up TV, improving the operator’s agility and capability to pursue the launch of innovative multi-screen services for its subscribers.”

Orange France counted just over 5mn subscribers for its TV services (delivered via IPTV and satellite) by the end of 2012, up nearly 16% from one year earlier.

Viaccess-Orca’s Data Enrichment and Engagement Platform (DEEP) has been shortlisted for ‘Best TV Experience Enhancement’ at this year’s TV Connect Industry Awards, taking place at prestigious London venue ONE Mayfair on March 20th. For more information and to register, please visit
