PARIS -- Aug. 31, 2017 --

 Viaccess-Orca, a global leader providing OTT and TV platforms, content protection, and advanced data solutions, announced today that North American operator Consolidated Communications has launched a targeted OTT offering across its footprint using Olympusat's VEMOX(TM) service powered by Viaccess-Orca. Bundling Viaccess-Orca's TV Everywhere solution with Olympusat content preparation services, VEMOX provides Consolidated Communications with a single, end-to-end, cloud-based OTT solution that reduces the risk and the upfront investment involved with launching a multiscreen service. Through VEMOX, the operator can deliver a variety of live, on-demand, and personalized content recommendations to viewers in Spanish on every screen.

"Providing a robust and inclusive portfolio of content offerings is something that we consistently strive to do," said Rob Koester, vice president of consumer product management for Consolidated Communications. "VEMOX gives us the ability to provide desired programming on a full range of connected devices at home and on the go."

VEMOX allows Consolidated Communications to respond quickly to market demands and challenges while creating a secure, personalized, and consistent user experience. At the heart of VEMOX is Viaccess-Orca's TV Everywhere solution, which includes a unified service delivery platform (RiGHTv), content discovery and personalization platform (COMPASS), as well as Viaccess-Orca's multi-DRM and Secure Player to ensure safe content distribution.

"The Spanish-speaking television market is widely underserved in North America, and with VEMOX we are changing that scenario," said Tom Mohler, CEO of Olympusat. "Thanks to the TV Everywhere expertise of Viaccess-Orca and our own content experience, VEMOX has tremendous potential. Olympusat has been a pioneer in the television distribution business, building a solid user base by offering top-tier Hispanic programming from a variety of networks. We're excited to bring personalized OTT multiscreen content to Consolidated Communications' Hispanic households in the United States and give their customers access to all the content they love."

"Launching an OTT service can be both technically and operationally complex. In today's rapidly changing TV environment, service providers need an efficient service delivery platform to move quickly; advanced content discovery tools for providing custom, salient content; and first-class content security," said Paul Molinier, CEO of Viaccess-Orca. "Based on flexible business models, our end-to-end OTT multiscreen solution with Olympusat dramatically sped up the launch of Consolidated Communications' new service, while lowering costs and enabling the operator to address the growing consumer expectation for targeted content on TVs, PCs, smartphones, and tablets."
