Squadeo Now In Viaccess-Orca’s Orbit


Squadeo, a provider of secure cross-platform OTT premium video solutions for the TV industry, has been purchased by Viaccess-Orca, known for the protection and enhancement of content services.

The integration of Squadeo’s multimedia QuickPlayer is designed to bolster Viaccess-Orca’s Connected Sentinel Player (CSP) offering, enabling an end-to-end solution for delivering live and VOD content to PC, Mac and connected mobile devices, including Android and iOS.

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

Squadeo provides secure video players on open platforms pre-integrated with major DRMs.

“In order to differentiate from the competition and succeed in today’s rapidly evolving multiscreen world, content providers need powerful and innovative end-to-end platforms featuring the same unique experience on any consumer device,” said Nicolas Delahaye, President at Squadeo. “We’re thrilled to join forces with Viaccess-Orca to market and deploy more integrated and comprehensive turnkey solutions to accelerate OTT deployments and increase our customers’ profitability.”
