DRM Solutions and Content Protection in Cloud TV

Mon, Feb 13, 2017 | by Mathieu Harel


While the broadcast industry is finally embracing cloud technologies with enthusiasm, for a long time it was a significant hold out against their adoption. Typically, surveys would cite concerns about content security as the main reason for this skepticism, but the accelerating roll out of DRM Solutions and Content Protection in the cloud-space looks to have finally won over the naysayers. And it is only a slight irony that one of the most effective weapons against piracy is, in fact, cloud-based DRM.

Cloud DRM - Why Pay TV Needs to Consider it?

Mon, Jul 20, 2015 | by David Leporini


Digital Rights Management (DRM), viewed as the set of technologies enforcing license agreements, has been an integral part of the history of digital content since very early days. Its use stretches all the way back into the 1990s and comparatively primitive techniques such as Product Keys, which saw users enter — often repeatedly — long strings of random numbers to validate computer programs like games. Efforts to break such protection technologies have been around for almost as long, as witnessed by the landmark and unanimous passing of The Digital Millennium Copyright Act by the US Senate in 1998. This made it an offence to circumvent access controls and technical protection measures applied to copyrighted works, and thus the struggle against digital piracy became a matter for the criminal courts as well as the copyright holders.
