This week at the 2015 International Broadcasting Convention (IBC), Sept. 10-15, EZDRM Inc., a global leader in hosted DRM technology delivery, in partnership with Movidone SAS, announced the availability of a hosted Google Widevine Modular DRM solution for the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. EZDRM provides Google Widevine License delivery for content encrypted and streamed by Microsoft Azure Media Services. This enables customers to reach devices running Chrome and Android with Google Widevine.
The EZDRM offering, jointly developed with Movidone, is built to complement Azure Media Services by allowing digital content providers on Azure to select any media assets to be processed for protection in the cloud. Once the content is protected, the EZDRM system ties into the client’s business logic and dynamically sets DRM licensing rules per each request. Additionally, the Azure Media Services API structure allows software vendors to build complete end-to-end solutions, utilizing the EZDRM CENC DRM packaging as part of their Azure work flow.
