Robust and highly scalable multi-DRM service built on latest standards including MPEG-DASH, Common Encryption and Encrypted Media Extensions

Cologne, Germany 
 08.06.2015 — During ANGA COM in Cologne Axinom allows interested parties to get a first glance at Axinom DRM 6.The new DRM service enables customers to create premium video solutions with minimal technology integration effort while providing great scalability and maintenance-free operation.

Axinom DRM has been undergoing active development since it was first offered in 2009 and constant customer feedback has enabled it to become highly flexible, with a single service satisfying the needs of many different solutions in often challenging environments. It can be found serving licenses to set-top boxes, mobile apps, websites, in-flight entertainment systems and more.

Axinom DRM 6 is built from the ground up to target multiple DRM technologies in a uniform manner, enabling customers to target a wide range of platforms. Leveraging the Common Encryption specification satisfies the DRM needs of many different software platforms with a single service by simultaneously supporting multiple DRM technologies. This allows customers to select the best approach for each platform without requiring significant new development. The APIs offered by Axinom’s service are largely DRM-agnostic and designed with future extensibility in mind.

For maximum availability, scalability, and performance Axinom DRM 6 supports zero-downtime maintenance and a globally distributed cloud-deployment spanning several public cloud providers. Axinom’s customers enjoy guaranteed availability of 99.99% and global support 24/7. Consumers enjoy a highly responsive service that’s always available.

„For our customers it is important to reach the broadest possible audience with the best possible user experience. Therefore it is important for us to support multiple DRM technologies”, says Johannes Jauch, CTO at Axinom. “Client device platforms like TVs, PCs, tablets and smartphones in many cases work best with the respective platform’s native DRM technology. At the same time, using a non-native DRM system on client platforms often leads to subpar user experience and even may incur additional licensing costs. Axinom DRM 6 solves this out-of-the-box. The old promise of protect once, deliver everywhere? finally holds true.”

Damir Tomicic, Axinom’s CEO says: “Many of our customers need to solve the upcoming issue with the desktop Chrome browser not supporting NPAPI plug-ins like Silverlight anymore. With our multi-DRM service and HTML5-based players we can provide our customers with a solution for this.”

At ANGA COM booth H10.1 O24 Axinom shows end-to-end implementations of multi-DRM based on MPEG-DASH and Common Encryption, both, as native apps for smartphones and tablets (iOS, Android, Windows), embedded devices (Smart TV, Xbox, PlayStation, STB, and more) and as cross-platform HTML5/Javascript web applications (PC, Mac, tablets and smartphones).
