Digital Rights Management company BuyDRM has been employed by the BBC for its iPlayer app.
The company’s KeyOS MultiKey DRM Service is now powering the app which enables users to download or view offline content on MacOS and Windows clients.
Using KeyOS MultiKey Service, BBC iPlayer delivers DASH content using Google’s Widevine DRM which is supported across a variety of popular consumer platforms. The broadcaster also uses the KeyOS MultiPlay SDKs to deliver DRM licenses on mobile devices for protected playback of premium content.
“BuyDRM takes great pride in powering one of the worlds’ most well-known and consumed brands” said BuyDRM CEO and founder, Christopher Levy. “We have innovated a variety of solutions to further the reach of the BBC iPlayer and this addition of Google’s Widevine DRM reinforces this effort.”
“Google’s Widevine technology is powering many of the most successful OTT platforms around the world” added Brian Baker, head of Widevine Business at Google. “Working with BuyDRM, the BBC is able to deploy a DRM solution that supports all of the popular consumer playback platforms and business models.”
