Product description

 The Free-To-Air (FTA) distribution of content allows consumers to access various and rich TV programs without requiring any subscription. Thus, advertising and sponsorship help broadcasters to reach a much larger audience.

This business model requires very cost effective content protection solutions based on subsets of traditional DRM offer.

Inside Secure’s Content Protection Client, Essential Agent, is the right fit.

It takes a full advantage of Inside Secure’s award winning software protection with anti-tampering, obfuscation, white boxing and jailbreak detection (optional) to protect data and computations. This efficient set of countermeasures guarantees integrity checking, good resistance to reverse engineering, in addition to keys and other secrets scrambling. Content Protection Client, Essential Agent, offers the best HD experience on Android supported by most of the adaptive streaming and static file protocols (Apple HTTP Live Streaming, Microsoft Smooth StreamingMPEG-DASHPIFF) and a rich set of extra features including Download & Playsubtitles and immersive audio.

The technology is fully approved for premium content distribution on Consumer Electronic devices including mobile phones and tablets.

When distributed over HTTP Live Streaming adaptive streaming standard protocol, the content can be encrypted and protected by the AES-128 government approved strong cryptography. It's robust implementation of this algorithm protects the keys while videos are decrypted.

The light but secure infrastructure makes content monetization possible even in a tough Free-To-Air economic model.

The solution being 100% software allows application distribution with current industry channels.

This offers a complete flexibility and a full cross Android platform compatibility. This is also a strong security argument since it makes possible immediate over-the-air enhancements and upgrades providing fast reactivity against new attacks.
