Siemens Convergence Creators selects castLabs for DRM video protection

Los Angeles, May 27, 2015 – castLabs, a digital video technology and services company, today announced they have been chosen by Siemens Convergence Creators, a global provider of OTT video solutions, as a partner for DRM and playback technology for premium video content.

Siemens Convergence Creators’ business customers can now benefit from the robust solutions provided by castLabs’ products and services to bolster their over-the-top offerings. The castLabs suite includes Android and iOS mobile player SDKs, the DASH Everywhere web player, and in particular the multi-DRM licensing service, DRMtoday. Selecting castLabs as a DRM partner gives Siemens Convergence Creators access to Google Widevine Modular/Classic, Microsoft PlayReady, Adobe Access, Marlin, and CMLA-OMA DRM schemes from one source.

“Implementing our multi-DRM service and DRM-enabled players complements Siemens Convergence Creators’ end-to-end OTT solution by adding a new level of value. This support now allows digital video retailers to reach more end-users with secured content by protecting and monetizing their valuable assets across the largest range of consumer devices and platforms,” said Michael Stattmann, Managing Director of castLabs.

“Adding castLabs to our partner portfolio expands the choice and flexibility for our customers when it comes to DRM protection. We recently implemented the castLabs Widevine solution into one of our customer projects and had the best experience with both the solution and the team,” said Markus Placho, Siemens Convergence Creators, Head of Business Unit Media.
