Viaccess-Orca and Hi-Global Technology, a provider of middleware solutions for digital TV, have joined forces to launch the Adaptive Box secure set-top. Adaptive Box combines Viaccess-Orca's Adaptive Sentinel Conditional Access System, multi-DRM solution, and TVaaS platform with middleware from Hi-Global Technology. The combined set-top and TV apps solution is intended for the distribution of satellite, cable, direct-to-home, IPTV and OTT services.
Adaptive Box is designed to support premium content services such as live TV, VOD, replay, personalized electronic program guides, targeted advertising, and content recommendations to subscribers on any screen.
Analytics are provided by pre-integration between Adaptive Box and Viaccess-Orca's TVaaS cloud TV platform. Hi-Global customizable and Android-compatible apps support VOD, replay, EPGs, and other features to devices like smartphones and tablets, with minimal middleware maintenance.
"In today's modern television landscape, operators face a number of challenges. Consumers are moving away from the TV screen toward devices like smartphones and tablets, and business models need to evolve at a furious pace to match the expectations of technologies and consumer behaviors," said Chem Assayag, EVP of marketing and sales, Viaccess-Orca. "Our Adaptive Box solution puts operators at the center of the game, allowing them to decide how to present content and services, either via traditional delivery methods or OTT multiscreen."
Viaccess-Orca will showcase the Adaptive Box at IBC2017 in Amsterdam.
