Viaccess-Orca, Wiztivi and EKT have joined forces to create an end-to-end over-the-top (OTT) multiscreen and IPTV solution for pay TV operators and other service providers. The combined solution will be demonstrated at ANGA COM 2018 in Cologne, Germany, next week.

"It is challenging to deliver content to a growing number of connected devices over different delivery networks. On top of it all, today's pay TV operators must also provide an exceptional user experience to stand apart from the competition," said Chem Assayag, EVP of marketing and sales at Viaccess-Orca. "Partnering with Wiztivi and EKT, we've simplified the management and delivery of next-generation OTT and IPTV services, enabling pay TV operators to drive new revenue streams and increase viewer satisfaction by making the TV experience feature-rich, personalized, and consistent across screens."

The joint multiplatform and multiscreen TV and DVB hybrid solution features integration between VO's TV Platform, on-premises and cloud; Wiztivi TIMELESSUI cross-platform user interface (UI) solution; and EKT Solid TV set-top box solutions. The combined solution is designed to work in virtually any targeted environment, including iOS, Android and EKT STB, with the same UI and user experience (UX) across devices including smartphones, tablets, PCs, set-tops, and connected TVs.

"As the video services market evolves toward video consumption anywhere and anytime, the rise of OTT services presents an opportunity for pay TV operators and service providers to enhance their value proposition and for content distributors to increase their revenue," said Manuel Dujardin, CTO at Wiztivi. "We are proud of this partnership, which showcases how agnostic Wiztivi's technology is with VO's cloud platform, enabling a quick time-to-market for IPTV and OTT offerings on a modular UI portal increasing ARPU."

"We strongly believe in a solid partnership that brings the experts together in one seamless integrated solution," said Richard Smith, CEO of EKT. "Viaccess-Orca, Wiztivi and EKT have made a three-way commitment to bring a ready-to-deploy solution to market. This best-in-class combination improves time to market, user experience, and monetization possibilities with a future-proof feature list."
