Uses wider adoption of MPEG-DASH as the foundation for multiple DRM capabilities without adding to user complexity

Vualto, global specialists in innovative content delivery and management, is demonstrating at IBC2015 how emerging standards can simplify the way content is protected online, making it easier for broadcasters and service providers to implement delivery systems which are simple and secure to operate. Digital rights management continues to be a minefield, with different platforms and devices preferring their own technology. Vualto will demonstrate how these can be managed simply and cost-effectively.

“The need for multiple DRM systems across browsers and devices continues to be a headache and an unwelcome distraction from the day job for content providers,” said James Burt, CTO of Vualto. “Our multi-vendor DRM solution hides this complexity from the content provider and makes use of both traditional DRM and CENC (common encryption) to provide content protection across devices.”

The latest version of the Vualto vudrm system includes a much richer administration portal, giving users access to comprehensive statistics as well as token generation and key provision. Vudrm now integrates with Amazon, Azure and Wowza as well as the Unified Streaming platform and Vualto has also launched a new trial offering, available for 30-days with a rapid set-up feature to maximise simplicity.

The Vualto vuplay product now includes a full set of DRM-enabled SDKs to cover all the current popular devices. This gives users the ability to create their own players for each device. The system also integrates with THEOPlayer for non-DRM, HLS playback.

“Protecting content online is clearly vital, and we have an unrivalled understanding of how to do it for any device,” said Burt. “Talk to us and we can develop solutions which meet the precise needs of each user.”

Vualto can be found on stand 14.D24 at IBC2015 (Amsterdam, 11 – 15 September). CTO James Burt will be talking about DRM fragmentation and the practical and commercial issues it raises on the IBC Content Everywhere Hub on Monday 13 September at 15.30. Panel discussions and presentations at the Hub are free to all IBC visitors.
