In the quest to bring premium content to multiple platforms, Pay-TV operators and service providers are forced to embrace multiple DRMs. While DRMs have been in use for many years, several challenges are still hampering OTT deployments – managing content and device usage rules consistently across all supported DRMs, scaling across all devices, going beyond basic security features, integration with business platforms and packagers, etc…
Protecting content on multiple devices nowadays means the use of platform-specific DRMs such as Widevine, PlayReady, and FairPlay Streaming in addition to security vendor-provided DRM solutions for platforms like STBs and TVs. Use of security vendor DRM (such as NAGRA PRM) brings some undeniable advantages, like control over implementation on both function and security. Furthermore, it is also a good alternative to platform DRMs even for BYOD devices in numerous situations.
All supported DRMs must be managed seamlessly, consistently, and in a simple way, mainly when it comes to enforcing content usage rules which are often DRM-specific and complex to handle. Saving such DRM specifics and rule management complexity helps service providers reduce impact on their business platforms when integrating a multi-DRM solution.
SSP’s scalable multi-DRM solution (Fairplay for Apple devices and Widevine for Android-based devices, as well MS PlayReady and NAGRA PRM) delivers content protection by leveraging both platform DRMs and NAGRA PRM by enabling advanced features to ensure operators maximise their service reach and achieve operational efficiency.
