Viaccess-Orca Joins LFP To Combat Illegal IPTV

Viaccess-Orca (VO), a Paris based provider of pay TV and OTT video processing and content protection technology, is joining forces with Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP), the French governing body of the sport, to fight against illegal IPTV networks.

Using VO’s Anti-Piracy Center services, LFP will be able to monitor and request effective countermeasures against the illegal redistribution of Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 matches.

“The French parliament has recently adopted a new law that will allow us to fight more efficiently against live event piracy and request the blocking of illegal services by technical intermediaries such as ISPs,” said Mathieu Ficot, Deputy General Manager at the Ligue de Football Professionnel. “In light of this exciting perspective, we are collaborating with Viaccess-Orca, the expert in anti-piracy services, to protect our premium content and revenues. With VO’s Anti-Piracy Center, we shall be able to monitor the illegal redistribution of LFP content by IPTV networks in real time and request immediate action against piracy.”

VO’s Anti-Piracy Centre comprises security services that will enable LFP to fight piracy from various angles. From its operating center, VO will help LFP combat content redistribution via a team skilled in video security, investigation, and security audits. With VO’s Anti-Piracy Center, LFP will be able to tailor the security services to address each unique piracy case.

“The number of illegal IPTV networks has boomed during the past years, and piracy is damaging the revenues of the live content industry, including sports,” said Cédric Hardouin, Executive Vice President of Research & Development at Viaccess-Orca.
