Product Description

castLabs’ DRMtoday solution offers a complete set of features, a service built on highly reliable infrastructure and a user-friendly interface with support from a professional services team. castLabs uses flexible cloud solutions with built-in logic and scaling mechanisms that run across multiple regions around the world to utilize servers near the customers to minimize key delivery time and maintain a global delivery network. The main DRMtoday features include Concurrent Stream Limiting (CSL), Geoblocking, Device Capability Awareness, Watermarking, Multi-DRM for all screens and Conditional Access. DRMtoday dashboard provides the functionality of viewing the information about licenses sent, unique users, DRM systems used, active devices, failed deliveries, usage data per day, and others. The dashboard also allows to configure one’s service in a click-through manner and use a large number of templates to setup e.g. a VoD service with 48 hours license duration, or a geolocation-controlled live streaming service with key rotation and only three allowed concurrent devices per user.

Aside from a global Multi-DRM License Delivery Network our PRESTOplay SDK Suite provides “API-first” player SDKs across multiple platforms & devices with an extensive set of built-in features to provide your customers with leading quality viewing experiences. The features include ultra-low latency, fully customizable UI, VoD & live playback, offline playback with downloader, MPEG-DASH, CMAF, HLS and Smooth Streaming support, and more.

The last technology is our Video Toolkit. We offer popular processing tools as ready-to-use automated solutions with complete access to their functions along with our expertise to create custom tools.
