Capture d’écran 2015-11-17 à 13.32.55
Since the launch of Apple’s iPad in 2010, the distribution of over-the-top (OTT) streaming video has grown significantly. OTT revenue has grown from $8 billion in 2011 to an excess of $20 billion in 2015, and Digital TV Research predicts that strong market growth will continue through 2020. However, piracy is an ever-growing challenge for the entertainment industry as well as device manufacturers, operators and content distributors who wish to increase their sales by offering premium content to consumers on Internet connected devices such as mobile phones, tablets, laptops, gaming consoles, set top boxes (STBs) and smart TVs. To date content owners have allowed their content to be distributed in this hostile environment using software-only solutions for protection. But as the quality of OTT content improves and approaches the quality of movie theaters, TV, DVD and Blue Ray premium video, studios are now imposing stronger security requirements as a condition of content licensing agreements.

This white paper reviews and explain the latest security solutions that meet the studios' requirements for 4K/UHD and HDR content distribution.
