INSIDE SECURE AND DIGISOFT.TV MAKE SET-TOP-BOX DIGITAL RIGHTS MANAGEMENT EASY, WITH THE LAUNCH OF A PLAYREADY ENCRYPTED MEDIA EXTENSION IMPLEMENTATION
Aix-en-Provence, France and Cork, Ireland, September 8th, 2014 - Digisoft.tv, the specialist middle applications company, and INSIDE Secure, providers of comprehensive embedded security solutions, announce today that they have launched a reference Encrypted Media Extension (EME) implementation on Digisoft.tv’s Iris HTML5 OS middleware application.
In recent years, powerful platforms for mobile devices and Smart TVs have allowed broadcasters, operators and service providers to develop rich multiscreen media applications using readily available skills and broadly adopted technologies. Similar developments have not been fully possible in set-top box application development. This is due to the closed nature of video playback APIs, particularly for the DRM integration methods. EME is part of a change that ushers in a new open standard.
“Our EME implementation closes the gap in open technology support for media in the browser,” said Martin Bergenwall, head of the Mobile Security division at INSIDE Secure. “We are driving ahead in the DRM technology game.”
Digisoft.tv Ltd is a global provider of hybrid IPTV software ecosystems for MSOs under the Iris Brand. Iris products support common broadcast standards (DVB, ISDB-T, ATSC) enhancing them with HbbTV/HTML 5 to deliver VOD and App Stores. The company also provides educational platforms to support digital learning resources. Our key activities include software provision, managed services and professional services for brands such as Vodafone and Discover Digital, as well as educational apps and sophisticated search platforms. The company is headquartered in Ireland, with sales offices around the world.
