VO says its multi-DRM management simplifies the delivery of OTT streaming and IPTV services on Android TV set-top-boxes (STBs), ensuring they are “flexible, scalable and future-proof”.

VO’s DRM includes security agents that are integrated with STBs running the Android TV operating system, and the company says it offers the highest level of end-to-end content protection.

Martin Lednár, Service Platforms and Products Manager at Orange Slovensko, said, “Introducing an Android TV offering enriches the television experience for our subscribers. However, it’s imperative that the content we’re delivering is well protected. VO’s DRM solutions are embedded in our headend and at the STB level to ensure end-to-end protection. VO’s DRM solutions have passed rigorous industry assessments, which gives us the confidence that our content is safe, even as piracy continues to evolve.”

Pierre-Alexandre Bidard, Vice President of Partnerships and Security Products, also commented: “Orange Slovensko operates a countrywide network covering 99% of the Slovakian population, and we’re excited to take its TV offering to the next level”.

VO’s DRM can be deployed on-premise or in the cloud. Aside from its own in-house DRM, the company’s solutions support several DRM technologies including Microsoft PlayReady, Apple FairPlay, Google Widevine.
