OTT streaming services require robust content protection and anti-piracy support to safeguard valuable assets and revenue. The cloud-based ExpressPlay DRM offers a comprehensive multi-DRM service that runs on AWS infrastructure and is optimized for operators of live-streamed and VOD content.
ExpressPlay DRM cloud service is interoperable with AWS Media Services. This includes AWS Elemental MediaPackage, a video delivery service that allows service providers to stream video securely and reliably at scale, and AWS Elemental MediaConvert, a file-based video transcoding service with broadcast- grade features that allows operators to easily create VOD content for broadcast and multi-screen delivery.
ExpressPlay DRM enables streamlined and secure content packaging workflows leveraging the Secure Packager and Encoder Key Exchange (SPEKE) v2.0 API created by AWS Media Services. The integration enables secure workflows and smooth interoperability with AWS video processing and packaging offerings. OTT operators can enjoy major cost savings over time by eliminating the need to invest in permanently overprovisioned on-premise systems, while maintaining the ability to instantly serve large volumes of DRM licenses securely for major live events.
