Viaccess-Orca highlights second-screen and anti-P2P solutions

Viaccess-Orca is planning to highlight second-screen content engagement strategies and solutions to target peer-to-peer web piracy at IBC.

Demonstrations at the show will include DEEP, a new family of services providing smart aggregation of second-generation metadata designed to introduce content to the second screen as part of the content service provider offering. Viaccess-Orca’s new partnerships with two leading technology and content vendors, TVersity, for sending content from the second screen to the main screen and Audible Magic, using automatic content recognition (ACR) technology to synchronise the second screen with the content showing on TV, form part of the ecosystem the company is creating for operators to control the second screen market.

Viaccess-Orca will also show P2P Tracker, a new service for content service providers and content owners to monitor and measure illegitimate peer-to-peer redistribution of live content. The service enables content service providers to assess the threat, including geo-localisation data of peers, samples of the measured streams and a list of available channels. With this information, as well as additional analysed data, service providers can measure risk levels and take appropriate actions to manage this business threat, according to the company.

Viaccess-Orca will be exhibiting at IBC on Stand 1.A51
