“As multiscreen video consumption continues to grow, content providers are challenged to deliver consistent, secure, and premium video experiences across all screens,” said Viaccess-Orca CEO, Paul Molinier.

“Combining Squadeo’s best-in-class multimedia player technologies with our Connected Sentinel Player offering will enable content providers to deliver better video quality with stronger content protection, and effectively monetise their OTT multiscreen services.”

Squadeo provides video players on open platforms pre-integrated with major DRMs. Its end-to-end QuickPlayer allows content providers to offer a multiscreen experience that uses patented video scrambling technology.

The end-to-end solution also enables content providers to collect data from QuickPlayer to gain insights into user behaviour, which they can use to increase viewer engagement.
