Israeli Operator Cellcom Powers OTT Service With End-to-End Solution From Viaccess-Orca and Broadpeak

PARIS — Feb. 2, 2023 — Viaccess-Orca (VO), a leading provider of data-driven, end-to-end solutions for the delivery, security, and monetization of advanced TV and video content services, and Broadpeak, a leading provider of content delivery network and video streaming solutions for content providers and pay-TV operators worldwide, announced today they have joined forces to provide Israel’s leading telecommunications company Cellcom with an end-to-end solution offering super-low latency for live sports streaming over OTT STBs. With the solution from VO and Broadpeak, Cellcom can deliver an outstanding quality of experience to subscribers, with latency as low as 3 seconds, during major live sports events.

“Premium live sports events attract record audiences, and we needed a reliable solution to ensure our viewers can watch the games in as close to real time as possible,” Gil Hershberg, CTO of Cellcom TV. “We chose to partner with VO and Broadpeak because of their extensive technical innovation and experience in providing cutting-edge solutions for exceptional-quality live sports streaming. We have been able to achieve unparalleled low latency during the latest World Cup, improving our subscribers’ quality of experience and overall satisfaction.”

The end-to-end solution used by Cellcom features VO’s Secure Video Player (VO Player), a unique multiplatform secure player that supports HLS, MSS, DASH, and CMAF streaming formats to provide a best-in-class user experience across all devices. VO Player is integrated with Broadpeak’s BkS350 Origin Packager, which combines just-in-time packaging with caching to reduce the need for encoding and storage resources. Perfect timing synchronization between the VO Player and Broadpeak’s Origin Packager through unmanaged commercial networks (i.e., CDNs) ensures low-latency video streaming.

“Low latency is critical during live sports events,” said Philippe Léonetti, CEO at Viaccess-Orca. “Teaming up with Broadpeak, we’re thrilled to provide Cellcom with a secure solution for low-latency live sports streaming. What’s especially innovative about our end-to-end solution is its ability to reduce latency down to 3 seconds on 4K TVs in the living room, providing sports fans with the ultimate viewing experience.”
