Certified Widevine Implementation Partner

Widevine provides digital media security for the protected delivery of video entertainment to consumer devices. It plays a main role in a number of our OTT products and services:

  • Our multi-DRM technology delivers Widevine licenses to multi-screen streaming providers, and their customers, worldwide.
  • Widevine is an important feature for many of our PRESTOplay video player SDKs.
  • Our Video Toolkit content processing service encrypts VOD file-sets for secure playback using Common Encryption supported DRM systems such as Widevine.

Widevine is available in two versions: Modular and Classic

Widevine Modular

Widevine Modular is the current version with support for MPEG-DASH, CMAF, HLS, and Smooth Streaming ABR video formats, as well as open standards such as Common Encryption (CENC).

DRMtoday’s implementation supports both AESCTR and AESCBC encryption modes. This allows you to unlock the potential of CENC by streaming a single protected file-set across multiple devices. We also support Widevine security level 1 for hardware protection.

Examples of popular platforms featuring support include:

  • Chrome browser
  • Firefox browser
  • Opera browser
  • Android (4.4+)
  • Android TV
  • Chromecast
  • Smart TVs (Example: Samsung)

Widevine Classic

Widevine Classic is the original version and requires content to be packaged into a proprietary .WVM format. This version is now typically supported only by legacy consumer devices with Modular as its replacement in modern platforms.

Examples of legacy platforms featuring support include

  • Android (3.1 – 5.1)
  • Google TV
  • Smart TVs (Example: Samsung & LG)
