castLabs has announced API integration between its DRMtoday cloud content licensing service and the AWS Elemental MediaConvert and MediaPackage video processing services.
Built on the multi-region AWS infrastructure, DRMtoday operates as a License Delivery Network. It will enable users to process video content into various formats and distribute it for viewing on different devices with simplified Digital Rights Management (DRM).
According to the two companies, streaming services will benefit from low-latency license delivery for quick start times, high availability, and fault-tolerant redundancy.
DRMtoday’s API integration with AWS Media Services supports video providers delivering MPEG-DASH content with DRM including Google Widevine and Microsoft PlayReady, HLS content with Apple FairPlay Streaming, and Microsoft Smooth Streaming with Microsoft PlayReady. DRMtoday also supports Common Encryption (CENC).
“DRMtoday is trusted by content owners and digital video markets worldwide with billions of licenses delivered. Our globally scalable and robust licensing platform is a strong complement to AWS Media Services, and is deployed on the same AWS infrastructure. Working with AWS Elemental, we allow video providers to benefit from reduced complexity and faster time to market for multi-format video processing and multi-DRM adoption across all screens,” said Michael Stattmann, CEO of castLabs.
