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 time

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!

Multi-region Reliability

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.

Simple implementation

Simple Integration

Get up and running fast with our straightforward developer API. Just one integration is needed with your existing infrastructure to access multi-DRM.

Studio recognized protection

Studio Trusted Protection

All DRM systems we provide meet strict studio and broadcaster security requirements to supply premium content online.

Secured streaming file formats

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.

Hardware DRM

Hardware Security

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

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.

Online Dashboard

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

Reseller Management

Resellers can also manage their own clients and provide them with separate administration accounts.
