We layer access control features on top of licensing for an extra monetization treat.
- Geoblocking: authorize service only in desired locations
- Concurrent stream limiting: enable ‘limited device number’ business models
Compatible with leading technologies
We’ve partnered with popular streaming providers to simplify workflows with smooth key ingestion.
Video player convenience
DRMtoday is naturally integrated with our range of smart PRESTOplay playback SDKs. But it also works with third-party solutions (if that’s the way you want to go of course).
Let’s get technical
|License delivery network|
|Server infrastructure||Multi-region AWS servers|
|Fault-tolerant & high global availability
Multiple instances per region for added redundancy
Fast stream start times
|Rapid world-wide key synchronization|
|Service integration method||Single API for all DRMs|
|Upfront token authentication|
Selectively enforce stream quality
Based on playback device’s security level
For example, you can identify server-side if a device is secure enough for HD quality, or if bit rates should be limited. This is useful as studios typically require hardware DRM to playback high quality renditions such as HD, UHD, and HDR.
Authorize or block user access to your content in specific locations.
By model, manufacturer, or unique ID
|Output protection control
HDCP level enforcement
Concurrent stream limiting
Prevent user access to streams by denying licensing and license renewal requests. This controls how many streams can be accessed simultaneously by a given user, for example, to enable ‘limited device number’ business models.
