FairPlay Streaming by Apple

FairPlay Streaming is Apple’s proprietary DRM system used for securing digital media across their products. It plays a key role in a number of our OTT solutions:

  • Our multi-DRM technology delivers FairPlay Streaming licenses to multi-screen streaming providers, and their customers, worldwide.
  • FairPlay Streaming is an important feature in our PRESTOplay video player SDKs for iOS and browsers.
  • Our Video Toolkit content processing service encrypts VOD file-sets for secure playback using DRM systems such as FairPlay Streaming.

Apple platforms utilizing this system include iOS devices, Apple TV (tvOS), macOS, and the Safari browser.

Supported Features
