Viaccess-Orca’s DRM solution and its secure VO Player have been integrated on Android TV set-top boxes from Technicolor in full compliance with the TV Input Framework (TIF). “By making the plug-in for its DRM available in the media DRM format, VO ensures seamless integration into Android TV platforms and minimises complexity for STB device manufacturers,” Viaccess-Orca (VO) says.
Gaëtan Delcroix, Vice President, Video Product Unit at Technicolor, comments: “The open and defined approach that VO has taken with its DRM solution significantly decreases integration costs for device manufacturers, enabling us to focus efforts on system -on-chip specifics and better meet the global demand for Android TV experiences.”
VO’s DRM and secure VO Player solutions have been integrated on Technicolor Sapphire STBs featuring an Android operating system and Broadcom 7271 chipset. Through universal integration of its DRM on Android TV devices, VO allows for de facto support of the various Android TV apps and players, including the VO Player.
“By combining Technicolor STBs, VO DRM and the VO Player, Pay TV operators gain a fully integrated Android TV solution that is easy to deploy and that provides the highest security levels for premium video content protection,” Viaccess-Orca claims. “Thanks to a security renewal feature on our DRM solution, operators don not need to worry about compromised devices.”
