Viaccess-Orca introduces new UI

Viaccess-Orca is to demonstrate a new user interface for its TV Everywhere (TVE) solution at IBC.

The new interface allows TV viewers to discover content on a range of devices, including TVs, PCs, smartphones, and tablets, according to Viaccess-Orca.

“To remain competitive in today’s multiscreen world, content service providers must offer a personalized TV experience anywhere, anytime, and on any device,” said François Moreau de Saint Martin, CEO at Viaccess-Orca. “Our next-generation TV Everywhere solution features an intuitive user interface that allows quick access to favorite content, helping providers enhance subscriber satisfaction and increase their revenue streams.”

Using Viaccess-Orca’s TVE solution, providers can deliver live, VOD, and catch-up TV content on any network via any screen. The new user interface is based on Viaccess-Orca’s in-house TVE solution, using a variety of advanced methodologies for search, recommendation, and exploration. Recordings can be initiated from any device. In addition, settings, favorites, wish lists, and user preferences are maintained across all devices, according to the company.

At IBC2013, the Viaccess-Orca TV Everywhere demo will also highlight the company’s DEEP platform (Data Enrichment and Engagement Platform) which is an automatically generated digital magazine platform for the second screen. Through DEEP, operators can generate enriched metadata and offer users additional content related to what they’re already consuming, according to Viaccess-Orca.
