Verimatrix, VisualOn join AWS Media & Entertainment Initiative

May 26, 2021

Verimatrix, a specialist in powering the connected world with people-centred security, has announced its support for the AWS for Media & Entertainment initiative from Amazon Web Services (AWS) – enabling content service providers that deploy on AWS to implement Verimatrix’s Multi-DRM Core solution to negotiate premium content rights with pre-approved and pre-integrated security for the distribution of licensed content.

Cloud-native and unencumbered by legacy development and deployment processes, Verimatrix Multi-DRM Core scales according to customer demand. It optimises costs instead of purchasing pre-committed fixed capacity and ultimately results in faster launches for Direct-to-Consumer offerings, according to Verimatrix.

“Verimatrix is proud to collaborate with AWS to offer content providers a powerful choice for scaling and securing content as efficiently as possible,” said Asaf Ashkenazi, Chief Operating Officer at Verimatrix. “Entertainment content is being consumed like never before – by larger and larger audiences and often simultaneously around the globe. Innovatively addressing the need to deploy quickly while also ensuring a stellar user experience, Verimatrix’s Multi-DRM Core solution brings proven scalability and reliability when it’s needed most.”

VisualOn, a streaming solutions provider that optimises the impact of the video player, has also announced support for the AWS for Media & Entertainment initiative.

“We aim to provide the smoothest in-browser experience for viewers – for live and on-demand content, but it doesn’t stop there,” said Yang Cai, CEO of VisualOn. “Our advanced features provide additional analytics to ensure a high quality of experience. And the API integration with AWS Elemental MediaTailor helps capture more revenue through ad-supported channels while maintaining a high playback standard.”
