Petr Peterka, CTO of Verimatrix, explained that the integration of Verimatrix’s MultiRights OTT with AWS Media Services enables video providers to move towards the goal of “complete cloud-based and virtualised operations”.
The multi-DRM solution has been integrated with Amazon Web Services (AWS) Media Services, allowing media companies to process and deliver video streams for multi-platform delivery
Verimatrix has announced an API (application programming interface) integration between its MultiRights OTT multi-DRM security solution and Amazon Web Services (AWS) Media Services through AWS Elemental MediaConvert and AWS Elemental MediaPackage.
The cloud-based AWS Media Services provides users with the capability to ingest, process, package and deliver video content at scale. With this API integration, pay-TV operators, broadcasters and over-the-top (OTT) service providers will be able to process and deliver video streams for broadcast TV and multi-screen devices with security, scalability and simplicity of cloud-based solutions, said Verimatrix.
By leveraging MultiRights OTT, operators can deploy multi-network services with a platform that accommodates evolving security regimes and business models while ensuring differentiated multi-screen video services across all devices. Additionally, the multi-DRM solution brings set-top boxes (STBs), consumer devices and HTML5 browsers under a unified rights management security umbrella to enable “secure premium” content playback.
Petr Peterka, CTO of Verimatrix, said: “MultiRights OTT is designed to provide a frictionless viewing experience through an advanced multi-DRM platform for premium services. Our API integration with AWS Media Services addresses the diverse constellation of video providers moving at different rates towards the goal of complete cloud-based and virtualised operations.”
Live video workflows combine encoding using AWS Elemental MediaLive, and packaging as well as origination and encryption via AWS Elemental MediaPackage with MultiRights OTT. The AWS Elemental MediaConvert file-to-file video transcoding service can be operated alongside MultiRights OTT, creating on-demand assets for both broadcast and multi-screen delivery.
Video providers will have the option to deploy MultiRights OTT on-premises, as a virtualised instance hosted in-house by the provider, or via the Verimatrix Secure Cloud host and management service.
