Molotov Deploys DRMtoday to Support Multi-DRM Including FairPlay Streaming

castLabs technologies enable Molotov to secure live and video-on-demand content across multiple screens.

Berlin(05 Sep 2017)

castLabs, a global partner in premium digital video technology, has today announced a partnership with Molotov, modernizing how France consumes television, to provide quick implementation, and simplified DRM management for their streaming platform curating content from more than 90+ television channels through a ‘freemium’ model.

Delivering secure live and video-on-demand content across a wide number of devices including Apple TV and Android TV, Molotov needed to provide support for relevant major DRM technologies within a simplified DRM management interface, while cutting implementation times for integration with their existing custom built video player.

Molotov selected DRMtoday, castLabs’ multi-DRM solution that delivers FairPlay Streaming by Apple, Microsoft® PlayReady®, Google Widevine™ and licensing through a single integration. For live streams, where security could be compromised mid-stream, DRMtoday’s key rotation mechanism provides enhanced content protection.

“DRMtoday enables Molotov to support leading DRM technologies through Molotov’s custom built player”, said Michael Stattmann, CEO of castLabs. “We were extremely happy to work with them on this project, giving viewers the opportunity to watch secure content across a variety of smart devices, Android TV and Apple TV.”

“castLabs’ DRMtoday provides a simply managed, secure multi-screen DRM solution for both live streaming and video-on-demand content”, said Thomas Sangouard, CTO at Molotov.

castLabs will be exhibiting and offering demonstrations of DRMtoday and their full range of video delivery solutions at IBC 2017 in Amsterdam between September 14-18th. Don’t delay in booking your meeting with castLabs.
