castLabs and Lemonade.TV+ work together to transform the way people view interactive movie experiences
Los Angeles, January 26, 2022 – castLabs, secured digital video delivery solutions provider, and Lemonade.TV+, the only interactive platform where fans can view their favorite films in immersive audio while interacting live and enjoying shopping experience, announced that they have been working together to bring fan engagement to an entirely new level.
Lemonade.TV+ was looking for a reputable solution for a digital rights management (DRM) licensing service and a video playback software for an easy-to-use technology that allows viewers to engage using their home devices. castLabs’ DRMtoday solution meets strict studio security requirements and offers a multi-DRM solution built on Amazon Web Services (AWS) that simplifies the protection of video content and delivery.

PRESTOplay supports the latest player features and standards across multiple platforms, such as Android devices and Android TV, iOS devices and Apple TV, HTML5 platforms including browsers, Windows/macOS desktops, game consoles, and TVs.
