Encryption in the cloud

First-time IBC exhibitor BuyDRM is showcasing its new KeyOS CloudPack encryption-as-a-service (EaaS) platform in Hall 14 this week.

The technology is designed to enable the cloud-based encryption of MSS, HLS and DASH content using the three popular consumer DRMs: Microsoft PlayReady, Google Widevine and Apple FairPlay.

The company explained that EaaS enables content owners to take existing content stored in Amazon’s AWS Cloud, Google’s Media Cloud or Microsoft’s Azure Cloud and encrypt it using military-grade AES 128-bit encryption compatible with today’s popular consumer devices.

BuyDRM said it identified a significant gap in the existing conventional video workflow and deployed its KeyOS Multipack Server into the three most popular cloud platforms, thereby moving the studio-required encryption solution next to the ‘in the clear’ studio content.

BuyDRM also recently announced that the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) is now using the KeyOS MultiKey service for its VoD and catchup service, iview.

ABC’s iview service records an average of 50 million monthly plays and accounts for roughly half of all streaming time for Australian TV video services.

In addition, BuyDRM and SONIFI Solutions recently announced a commercial agreement whereby SONIFI is securing VoD content using KeyOS MultiKey. SONIFI chose the KeyOS platform to deliver major studio content to set-top boxes in the world’s premier hotel brands. SONIFI’s

OTT VoD app gives guests access to the latest movies in the comfort of their hotel room.
