castLabs’ cloud multi-DRM solution – DRMtoday used by PBS to protect their valuable content

LOS ANGELES — castLabs is proud to announce its partnership with the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), as the broadcaster will use castLabs’ cloud digital rights management (DRM) – DRMtoday solution to protect its online video content.

DRMtoday allows end customers to reliably enjoy protected video, while being safely secured along the delivery chain. castLabs’ flexible and global DRM solution offers a complete set of features built on Amazon Web Services (AWS), and a user-friendly interface, with support from a professional services team. The main features include multi-DRM for WisePlay, Widevine, PlayReady, and FairPlay Streaming DRM systems, concurrent stream limiting, geoblocking, device capability awareness, Widevine CAS for PayTV set-top box services, and more.

“Core to PBS’s mission is accessibility— we must ensure that our award-winning programming can be found across a wide array of platforms including web, mobile platforms (Android and iOS), media streaming devices (Android TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, Fire TV, and Roku) and Samsung’s smart TVs. For that reason, it was important for us to find a solution that could offer PBS secure content protection at scale and castLabs’ DRMtoday solution does just that,” said Scott Nourse, PBS Senior Vice President of Product & Innovation.

“It’s been a pleasure working together with PBS and supporting them in securing their video assets across a variety of OTT platforms,” said Alec Henthorne, Solutions Architect at castLabs. “Their team is very knowledgeable which has contributed to a seamless integration. We are looking forward to working with PBS to support them on any future projects and continue to support their wonderful mission.”

With DRMtoday viewers can expect instant playback as castLabs’ speedy network and solution minimize key delivery time wherever customers are to help them enjoy video sooner.
