Axinom Highlights Multi-DRM For Service Providers At NAB

Most platforms have a native DRM technology that can be used for video playback with minimal effort. The use of 3rd party DRM technologies in an app often incurs a technology licensing fee which can be avoided by using the native technology. As a result, a modern premium video architecture is generally based on multi-DRM principles, optimizing for best platform coverage at minimal licensing cost.

Axinom DRM is built from the ground up to target multiple DRM technologies in a uniform manner, enabling content owners and program providers to target a wide range of platforms without technology licensing fees and without significant additional software development.

The DRM technologies currently targeted by Axinom include: Google Widewine, Microsoft PlayReady and Apple  Fairplay behind a unified API.

In the last few years, a great deal of standardization has taken place in the content delivery and protection field, leading to the Common Encryption (CENC) and Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH) international standards that form the underlying pillars of a modern premium video solution.

Axinom DRM provides the maximum benefit for those solutions that follow these specifications, enabling wide platform coverage to be reached without significant additional costs. It is a service that aims at the future, providing leading edge capabilities to satisfy content owner requirements and provide additional value to you.

To support existing solutions in a flexible way, backward compatibility is preserved for many previous-generation architectures and capabilities exist for integrating Axinom DRM into an existing product that may not have been previously DRM-capable.

Streaming players must accommodate multiple types of DRM. Look for a customizable solution to ensure the flexibility needed to last over time.

Player Integration

The choices available in the field of players are often numerous and there are multiple players available for many modern platforms. The capabilities of different players are greatly variable, not only in the field of DRM but also when it comes to playback capabilities and features. A multi-DRM service gives program suppliers the confidence that they can select a "best player" regardless of the DRM technology it uses.

The delivery and presentation of premium video content involves many factors, of which DRM is merely one. Axinom provides a total solution that easily can partner with various companies to fulfill all the different aspects of a project. The result can be tailored specifically for the client's Axinom can integrate both in-house products, custom developed code and third party components into a solution, always taking into account the optimal path towards the client's goals.
