Keepixo, which provides software-based head-end solutions for IPTV and OTT, and embedded security solution specialist INSIDE Secure, have announced they have successfully integrated the Microsoft PlayReady DRM to create a secure end-to-end IP-based delivery system for HEVC-compressed HD content.
The solution is being deployed by an un-named North American operator to securely deliver over 100 HD IPTV services in an OTT-like environment.
Keepixo said that by working with INSIDE Secure, the company had been able to rapidly integrate PlayReady into its Genova Live HEVC encoder, ensuring end-to-end HLS delivery of the HEVC-compressed HD content to multiple devices, including STBs, tablets and smartphones.
The protection-level afforded by the delivery system could be further enhanced through the use of key rotation, said Keepixo (this is a process by which the encryption keys used to scramble video content are continually changed to add an extra layer of security).
Microsoft PlayReady said that the ability to deliver HEVC content securely using over-the-top protocols was key to operators looking to extend their reach and enable compelling business models.
A demonstration of the technology will be available on the INSIDE Secure booth in Hall 2, booth 2A.08, as well as on the Keepixo stand in Hall 1, booth 1.F34.
