Viaccess-Orca Launches Cloud-Based Voyage

Voyage is a cloud based TV Everywhere as a Service from Viaccess-Orca. It is said to simplify multiscreen service delivery, increasing flexibility, reducing costs, and speeding up service launch times for operators. Running on Amazon Web Services cloud infrastructure, Voyage – TVaaS is integrated with CDN from Akamai as well as AWS CloudFront, with the option to swiftly add in other leading off-net and operator CDNs.

The company is currently offering free trials for pay-TV operators and content providers through www.tvaas.com. The trial includes access to the management console, iPhone and iPad mobile apps, 50GB of storage, 20 hours of video streaming, and setup for 10 subscribers and up to 20 devices.

"Cloud technology is a major disruptive force in the TV industry, enhancing all points of the TV service chain, from content preparation and distribution to personalisation of experience,” explained Paul Molinier, CEO at Viaccess-Orca. "Voyage – TVaaS is the most complete cloud-based TV service available on the market today, offering content security, management, and delivery. Through our secure, managed cloud TV service operators and content providers can dramatically reduce their CAPEX, increase scalability, and adapt to the changing demands of a marketplace in flux — which is important for staying competitive in today's evolving industry."

Voyage – TVaaS is powered by Viaccess-Orca's RightTV service delivery platform, Compass content discovery and personalization platform, and Connected Sentinel DRM including VO's video player.

“Voyage offers best-in-class security for any device, including those embedding a Trusted Execution Environment and a secure media path, enabling service providers to guarantee secure 4K/UHD/HDR content delivery,” says Molinier. “By using Voyage – TVaaS, operators can distribute content securely to STBs, tablets, smartphones, and other connected devices based on a suite of DRM technologies including MicrosoftPlayReady, Widevine, and Viaccess-Orca's proprietary DRM.

Voyage – TVaaS also improves subscriber engagement via personalized apps and content discovery tools. The service includes Voyage Apps, which are designed to be simple and intuitive for subscribers, allowing effortless exploration and discovery of relevant and compelling content across all devices — seamlessly and consistently.”
