DRMtoday: Digital Rights Management & Access Control
Working with digital rights management (DRM) to protect your valuable video assets can be a complicated and time-consuming task with the multitude of technologies in use. We specialize in simplifying DRM for you to easily enable secured premium content delivery. Let us handle your on-demand, live, and offline video protection so you can focus on getting content to market.
License Delivery Network
Our DRMtoday service provides the highest quality DRM solution for clients worldwide.
Scalable Cloud Licensing
DRM as a flexible cloud solution allows you to effortlessly scale your service, saving time and money by offloading your licensing workload.
Fast Start Times
Viewers expect playback to begin instantly. Unlike other services, we utilize servers near your customers to minimize key delivery time. Low-latency licensing lets your audience enjoy content sooner!
DRMtoday runs across multiple AWS regions around the world. Avoid service outages with dependable high availability and excellent fault-tolerant redundancy expanding on what AWS already provides.
Easily Access Multi-DRM
Operating DRM systems in-house can be a heavy drain on resources. Setting up and maintaining even a single system has conventionally been costly and complicated.
We’ve taken care of the hard work for you by streamlining DRM. Our service enables you to rapidly adopt all leading systems at once from a single and convenient source! Google Widevine™ (Modular & Classic), Microsoft® PlayReady®, and FairPlay Streaming by Apple are each ready for you to use.
We unlock the full potential of Common Encryption (CENC) allowing a single encrypted file-set to be streamed across multiple platforms.
Get up and running fast with our straightforward developer API. Just one integration is needed with your existing infrastructure to access multi-DRM.
Studio Trusted Protection
All DRM systems we provide meet strict studio and broadcaster security requirements to supply premium content online.
Securing Your Format
Our service allows you to deliver secured content using common ABR video streaming formats: MPEG-DASH, HLS, Smooth Streaming, CMAF.
Solutions for All Screens
Different devices and platforms support different technologies so you’ll need multiple DRM systems to distribute content to your full audience.
DRMtoday gives your protected content maximum reach allowing consumers to watch how and where they want.
Managing hardware security is essential to meet studio requirements for UHD, HDR, and other next-generation quality content. In addition to software-based DRM, our service supports hardware-security level licensing in Trusted Execution Environments (TEE).
Output Protection Control
DRMtoday allows you to selectively enforce stream behavior based on a playback device’s security level. For example, you can identify server-side if a device is secure enough for UHD quality or if bit rates should be limited. This is useful as studios typically require hardware DRM to playback high resolution quality.
Our user-friendly frontend features comprehensive functionality to help you manage and monitor your licensing activity. Some of the features include:
- Configure delivery and authentication behavior
- Distribution logs
- Key ingestion
- Callback URL testing
Resellers can also manage their own clients and provide them with separate administration accounts.
Compatible with Leading Technologies
We’ve partnered with popular streaming technology providers to smoothly enable DRM licensing when using their workflows.
DRMtoday is also available on the AWS Marketplace as a pay-as-you-go deployment option for AWS Media Services users who utilize AWS Elemental MediaConvert or AWS Elemental MediaPackage.
