Enabling Streaming Content
The DRM Fusion Toolkit4Streaming provides a robust, server-side framework solution for protection of live, streaming video and audio.
DRM Fusion Toolkit4Streaming enables service providers to meet the growing demands for content distribution by providing flexible and secure components to protect content and offer new business models for consumers. By providing content and service protection as well as rights management capabilities, DRM Fusion Toolkit4Streaming delivers an all-in-one solution that mobile operators and service providers can seamlessly integrate into their delivery platform.
Integrated Approach to Service Delivery Platform
DRM Fusion Toolkit4Streaming is an add-on module for the DRM Fusion Toolkit. Through the combination of the toolkit and its add-on modules, operators can protect download media, unicast streams and broadcast content through a single, unified framework. Furthermore, operators who have already deployed DRM Fusion Toolkit for download protection can easily extend their offering to protection of streams and broadcast mobile TV.
Full Control of Streaming Content Lifecycle
DRM Fusion Toolkit4Streaming controls the full lifecycle of a stream; starting with encoding and encryption of streams to managing dedicated servers’ availability and scalability.
Live and On-demand Services for any Platform
DRM Fusion Toolkit4Streaming can be used to easily build content services such as TVoIP, VOD, mobile entertainment services, music services, IP datacasting and live webcasting. Protected, streamed content can be delivered over the Internet to consumers while the events are happening. Live events such as news reports, sports events and concerts can be protected. All Windows Media DRM 10.1, and OMA DRM 1.0 and 2.0 features are supported to enable the entire DRM process from content protection, management of rights, license generation and delivery, to rights enforcement.
Cost-effective and Time-saving Deployment
DRM Fusion Toolkit4Streaming can be deployed immediately without need for significant upfront investments or costs, reducing overall time-to-market. The solution seamlessly integrates with any Content Management System (CMS), Content Delivery Network (CDN) and billing system, supplying service providers with a complete and cost-effective distribution platform.
Dynamic Load-balancing and Control of Operations
With DRM Fusion Toolkit4Streaming, you have the ability to edit the details of the stream being protected in real-time, such as key switching during streaming to ensure maximum security. Various load-balancing strategies can be defined, such as active and backup streaming servers; where the latter waits to stream if/when the active streaming server fails and can be specified during setup.
Advanced Failover System
Users demand that live services are available whenever they want them. Service providers are often assessed against demanding Service Level Agreements (SLAs). DRM Fusion Toolkit4Streaming has been specifically designed to meet tough SLAs. It offers distributed, no-single-point-of-failure mechanisms to guarantee that real-time streaming protection jobs stay on the air regardless of software or hardware failures. SafeNet’s experience and proven track record worldwide enables us to provide a best-of-breed implementation of streaming protection failover and scalability.
Various deployments are supported, where modules can be either distributed or centralized in the application. Major modules are pluggable to allow application developers to extend the core functionality for their specific requirements.
Platform Independent Deployment
DRM Fusion Toolkit4Streaming exposes Java interfaces to the underlying encryption, packaging and rights management functionality. Toolkit4Streaming is platform agnostic and compatible with major databases and operating systems.
Extensive Event Monitoring
All internal workings of DRM Fusion Toolkit4Streaming can be monitored in real-time. Developers of the surrounding application can configure the DRM Fusion Toolkit4Streaming installation to consume statistical, event information.
