The Marlin DRM specification was co-founded by Intertrust, Panasonic, Philips, Samsung, and Sony. Marlin is a consumer electronics and mobile friendly technology. It is compatible with popular operating systems, codecs, file formats, and delivery networks. Marlin supports various content distribution models like streaming, multicast, broadcast, and download for offline playback.
The IFE market is increasingly requiring direct delivery of content to users' BYOD devices. The ExpressPlay DRM Offline enables the creation of a secure Wi-Fi cloud to distribute DRM protected content in-flight. There is no requirement for upstream connectivity during the flight. For airlines, it is also a potential revenue generator, or an added competitive perk.
In-vehicle entertainment entails providing both secure offline streaming and playback on users’ own video devices. The content is secured and protected with ExpressPlay DRM Offline. Users benefit from a complete on-the-go service for in-car, in-bus and in-train environments. There is no requirement for upstream connectivity.
Hospitality & public hotspots
Content hotspots are Wi-Fi zones, where users can enjoy protected content securely, by providing an offline support solution. These hotspots form the access end-points for mobile devices and enable secure video streaming, protected by ExpressPlay DRM Offline. Hotspots are especially useful for hospitals, hotels, army bases, and more.
