Topic Streaming With 24i

24i, the industry-leading video experience company, today announced that Topic, the new entertainment streaming service from First Look Media, has chosen 24i to power its new streaming video experience across topic.com, Apple TV and iOS, Android, Amazon Fire TV and Roku.
24i provides Topic with a brand-new suite of subscription and ad-supported video applications each with a consistent, intuitive video experience irrespective of viewing platform or device. The next-generation 24i Smart OTT productised solution, integrated with specialist partner technologies from Bitmovin, CenturyLink, Cleeng, EZDRM and JUMP enables Topic to extend, manage and monetize its programming to a fast-growing audience of ‘culture cravers.’

“We’re committed to providing our audiences with compelling and thought-provoking programming that reflects their values and interests, wherever they wish to access it,” said, Ryan Chanatry, Topic’s General Manager. “The smart products and solutions provided by 24i enable the Topic team to dynamically create next-generation video experiences, customize the presentation of titles by platform, and to differentiate Topic in an increasingly competitive direct-to-consumer video market”.

Topic, which officially launched November 21 2019, is a new streaming service offering North American premieres of global favourites along with original programming that includes a variety of scripted dramas, comedies, discussion shows, documentaries, and non-scripted programming which highlight human-focused stories from creators with a passionate point of view.

“The quality and variety of Topic’s programming make it extremely attractive to their growing audience,” said Martijn van Horssen, Joint-CEO of 24i. “By being able to support Topic’s platform-agnostic delivery strategy, we are delighted to deliver their next-generation video experiences and super-charge their growth to new platforms and audiences.”

Topic aims to push the art of storytelling to new heights by exploring different genres and media formats to develop and showcase impactful and engaging programming. The new service sources programming from leading global media companies, acquiring the rights to titles premiering at the world’s most prestigious film festivals as well as streaming original programming produced in-house by Topic or in partnership with some of today’s most prolific creators. Topic’s parent company is First Look Media, a company that was launched in 2013 by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar.

Within the 24i Smart OTT product, Topic can readily launch and manage its new, next-generation OTT service and extend its reach to multiple platforms, including iOS, Android, Apple TV, Roku and the web. In addition, the 24i SMART BACKSTAGE management and insight manager ensures Topic delivers a consistently high-quality and personalised streaming service to every subscriber on their choice of device.

Viaccess-Orca to Host Webinar on Cutting-Edge Anti-Piracy Strategies Posted: 18/11/2019
Viaccess-Orca to Host Webinar on Cutting-Edge Anti-Piracy Strategies

Viaccess-Orca (VO), a global leader providing OTT and TV platforms, content protection, and advanced data solutions, announced today a new webinar titled, "Defining and Executing a Piracy Management Strategy Through Cutting-Edge Technologies and Services."

Ignoring piracy is not an option: the need for an efficient and personalized anti-piracy strategy is critical.

Nov. 26, 3:00 p.m. GMT --  register at http://bit.ly/37lP8Vh.

• Content piracy has evolved over the last few years with the democratization of IP-based video delivery.

• Pirates have found ways to bypass traditional content protection technologies, redistribute, and monetize pirated content.

• Broadcasters and service providers face immense pressure to increase subscribers, ensure revenues, avoid churn, protect their brand reputation, and comply with rights-holders' content-protection requirements.

• Licensing pictures or events on an exclusive basis has proven to be increasingly challenging for rights holders due to rampant piracy.

By relying on experts and specialized tools — such as dynamic watermarking, DRM, breach detection, and password-sharing identification — service providers can anticipate piracy risks, instantly identify the source of piracy, and take counteractions. The webinar will discuss why media companies should build a piracy-management strategy and how it can be supported by VO, a leader in content protection technologies.
