VOD DRM Overview

Last updated: 2022-05-07 10:02:41

    Copyright infringement has grown alongside the rapid development of the online video industry, making copyright protection a major concern of content owners.

    Commercial DRM Solutions

    Commercial DRM solutions use playback licenses to offer high-level content protection. Before a device can play a DRM-encrypted video, it must obtain a license (which includes information such as the decryption key, validity period of the key, and device information) to decrypt the video.

    The strengths of commercialDRM solutions are as follows:

    • The key can only be read by the content decryption module (CDM).
    • Each license can be used for only one device.
    • You can set the validity period of a license.
    • Support hardware-based TEE and decoding.
    • Trusted by top content owners including Disney and Hollywood studios.

    Widevine and FairPlay are two mainstream DRM solutions.
