INSIDE Secure and VisualOn Partner to Secure Over-The-Top Content Delivery and Playback Across Multiple Platforms
- OTT and TV Everywhere service providers can now offer high-quality streaming to any device in a multi-DRM environment
LAS VEGAS — INSIDE Secure (Paris:INSD), a leader in embedded security solutions for mobile and connected devices, and VisualOn Inc., a multimedia software company that enables high-quality audio and video playback across connected devices, today announced that they are partnering to provide a secure multimedia player Software Development Kit (SDK) to allow the development and rollout of premium video applications supporting the most popular Digital Rights Management (DRM) systems across all Over-The-Top (OTT) platforms.
TV Everywhere offers consumers an amazing experience allowing streaming of media content OTT from a wide variety of connected devices. What is now a must-have for consumers represents a technical challenge for service providers and broadcasters. They must make content available on heterogeneous platforms, considering various device architectures, operating systems and DRM schemes.
INSIDE Secure’s multi-DRM Fusion is a Hollywood studios-approved popular content protection solution with more than 100 deployments by the most demanding content distributors, including HBO, BBC, Sky, Orange, Canal+, and Bell Canada – and more than 120 million consumers every day. Its recognized hardware and software-based security is approved to protect up to 4K/Ultra HD and HDR content with the support of Microsoft’s PlayReady SL3000, Google Widevine and Verimatrix ViewRight.
VisualOn’s OnStream® MediaPlayer+ (OSMP+) is a multimedia player development kit enabling cross-platform content delivery and playback on connected devices including mobile handsets, tablets, desktops, laptops, set-top boxes, and smart TVs. OSMP+ enables the development of both enterprise and consumer grade applications to meet the latest trends in high-quality audio-video streaming. It allows seamless playback across multiple hardware architecture and platforms, including iOS, Android, Windows Desktop and Phone, and more. OSMP+ utilizes the most advanced video and audio decoding technologies to support many industry standard formats including HEVC (H.265), H.264, AAC, and many others. It also supports most adaptive streaming protocols and closed captioning/subtitles formats.
“The addition of INSIDE Secure’s recognized multi-DRM and studios-approved content protection technologies to VisualOn’s cross-platform rich media player is the ideal solution for OTT operators willing to offer the best access to premium programs wherever, whenever, from any connected device,” said Andrew McLennan, Executive Vice President of the Mobile Security Division of INSIDE Secure. “INSIDE Secure’s hardware and software security expertise is the perfect fit to protect up to 4K/UHD and HDR content according to the latest MovieLabs specifications.”
