Vualto, specialists in video content delivery, is now a Certified Widevine Implementation Partner (CWIP) for the Modular DRM product. Widevine Modular DRM provides support for the latest industry standards for multi-platform content protection including MPEG-DASH, CENC and EMEs.
Vualto already provides support for PlayReady and Primetime DRM and has now added Google Widevine to the list as part of the Vualto DRM Framework.
“Vualto’s DRM framework, coupled with the Unified Streaming products, makes supporting multiple formats and DRM technologies extremely simple,” said James Burt, CTO and co-founder of Vualto. “Our cross-platform API tools provide a standardised way of generating keys, tokens and licences regardless of technology.”
Following Google’s announcement that it will no longer support Microsoft Silverlight – and therefore PlayReady DRM – in its Chrome browser from early 2015, the new partnership also allows Vualto to offer an alternative content protection solution using MPEG-DASH/EMEs with Widevine
Simon Westbroek at Unified Streaming said, “Practice shows that a unified approach towards streaming and content protection provides unique value for our customers. By working with video specialist, Vualto, we can accelerate this value by providing an end-to-end solution to solve the current challenge with Chrome and plugin support.
