Australia: ABC to deploy BuyDRM’s KeyOS

March 28, 2018

BuyDRM has announced that ABC AU (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) is planning to deploy BuyDRM’s KeyOS MultiKey Service in conjunction with Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elemental to package and encrypt live video content for users on a variety of playback platforms in Australia. ABC is using the KeyOS MultiKey Service to support multi-DRM playback in its iview on-demand and catch-up TV service. ABC’s iview records an average of 50 million plays per month.

API integration between BuyDRM and AWS Elemental MediaConvert enables content operators to deploy streamlined video workflows for live TV and VOD content. Using this API integration, AWS Elemental MediaPackage acquires content encryption keys from the KeyOS platform and uses them to encrypt the ABC live TV content. Upon playback, users acquire the license key directly from the KeyOS MultiKey Service platform to their playback device.

“Using KeyOS with AWS Elemental will allow the ABC to accelerate its deployment of live streaming services,” said Andrew Carey, Head of Digital Network, ABC Technology. “With a deployment of this size, leveraging the expertise of experienced third parties allows the ABC to deliver quickly and cost efficiently.”
