Example Workflow: In-flight Entertainment
Before media can be loaded onto an aircraft’s server for viewing, it must first be encoded, encrypted, and packaged into a deliverable format. During this process, content keys are securely ingested into a master database. Optionally, keys can also be securely ingested into our cloud-based DRMtoday License Delivery Network for internet-enabled use-cases (for example: to extend viewing after a journey ends).
We supply a fast and automated content preparation process through our Video Toolkit cloud service.
Encrypted content and relevant license data is then safely loaded on the plane’s onboard streaming server.
Securely transferring assets onboard is an important security consideration. Our DRMtoday Onboard solution supports different safe content loading and key scenarios including network sync, physical transfer, as well as dynamic key generation.
Content Request & DRM Licensing
When a passenger requests playback, an onboard DRM service prepares and delivers the appropriate license for the DRM system used by the playback application (PlayReady, Widevine, or FairPlay Streaming).
Our comprehensive DRMtoday Onboard server technology securely manages multi-DRM licensing for studio content across all screens.
We provide professional services for integration, system development, synchronization process design, testing and more.
Our experts can also assist you with technical documenting of your DRM workflow to help complete studio security checks when obtaining content.
Changes in technology and consumer expectations create unique challenges for in-flight entertainment. To ensure we continually meet the airline industry’s needs we are a member of the Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX).
