Viaccess-Orca: Keeping an Eye on Piracy12 September 2014
To support its cable TV service, Belgian mobile operator Mobistar recently selected Viaccess-Orca’s Prime Sentinel smart card-based conditional access system. On its IBC stand, Viaccess-Orca will be demonstrating how Mobistar is using Prime Sentinel to securely deliver premium live television content to subscribers’ STBs. Viaccess-Orca will also announce the availability of the new version of Prime Sentinel CAS, providing what the company claims is state-of-the-art security for a wide range of TV service models.
The company will also announce partnership agreements with several STB manufacturers for its Dynamic Sentinel cardless conditional access system (CAS). Collaborating with leading technology providers, Viaccess-Orca says that it offers customers a best-in-class cardless security platform. Viaccess-Orca is also introducing a unified head-end for Dynamic Sentinel and Prime Sentinel, enabling content service providers to utilise both solutions for their subscriber base or migrate between them, if needed.
During a recent Eye on Piracy campaign around football coverage in Brazil, it was estimated that between 100,000 and 500,000 people tuned in to each game illegally. Viaccess-Orca sent approximately 3,000 takedown notices to content platforms illegally streaming content in the first two weeks of the games.
