More media related news to kick off the year. castLabs, a pioneer in premium digital video technology, has announced API integration between its DRMtoday cloud content licensing technology and AWS.
More specifically, the AWS Elemental MediaConvert and AWS Elemental MediaPackage services.
This development comes hot on the heels of another media company, SpotX, announcing integration with the Amazon suite of video streaming services.
Built on top of AWS, DRMtoday basically operates as a License Delivery Network, allowing streaming services to benefit from low latency delivery for quick start times and high availability to go with fault tolerant redundancy.
As Michael Stattmann, CEO of castLabs put it:
“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.”
Users get complete multi-DRM licensing and access control for a variety of packaging formats to secure playback across a broad range of client devices. The solution has been running on AWS since 2012, and offers licensing production and access control protection services for SD, HD, and UHD content.
It’s an excellent addition to the ecosystem that Amazon is working to create with the launch of a whole suite of new cloud media streaming services late last year.
