castLabs, a global player in digital video technology, has announced the deployment of multi-DRM licence delivery network technology at M6 Group, one of France’s largest private media groups, across its VoD and live streaming digital platform 6play.
Adopting HTML5 playback, M6 Group then sought a proven solution to simplify the task of digital rights management (DRM) licensing across all screens. The chosen solution would be required to handle a large number of licence requests per-day as the 6play digital platform is the repository for a large variety of multi-genre content from M6, France’s most profitable private television station, and its associated 13 digital satellite and cable channels.
“With billions of licences delivered worldwide and reliable AWS back-end infrastructure, M6 Group entrusted their confidence in castLabs’ proven multi-DRM solution DRMtoday,” said Michael Stattmann, CEO at castLabs.
“castLabs engineers smoothed the important step to move from legacy DRMs and players to latest OTT technology. The integration of DRMtoday has been effortless, and we can now with certainty provide our viewers with a reliable, high performance playback experience while meeting strict studio requirements for DRM protected content,” said Valéry Gerfaud EVP Digital Innovation Technology at Groupe M6.
