Low-latency and Security
EZDRM is offering a patent pending solution that combines WebRTC low-latency video delivery with commercial-grade DRM content security. Fully leveraging DRM license management and robustness rules will expand the deployment of WebRTC solutions for new media applications such as esports, online gambling, auctions, and online meetings.
- Integrates into any existing WebRTC media workflow
- Supports full Multi-DRM feature set
- Uses client DRM-managed robustness controls
- Leverages SSAI monetization models
- Follows open standards
- Enables session-based watermarking
Use cases for WebRTC are growing every day–everything from eSports, wagering, auctions, meetings/town halls, and live events such as concerts and sports matches. But these applications have been limited till now by an incomplete and non-standard approach to the integration of content security. EZDRM now has a novel, comprehensive solution to fill that gap that is entirely based on standard encoding technologies and an integration with native client-side, hardware-supported content security functionality. In other words, you can build your low-latency WebRTC application and be assured that your content is as well protected as it is in typical HTTP ABR delivery systems.
The EZDRM WebRTC-DRM solution ingests content following industry standards of CMAF with CBCS encoding and encryption workflow. Via our EZDRM Transport Server module (RTC-TS), this secure origin stream is directed via a WebRTC connection for delivery to client devices.
An additional EZDRM Transport Connector (RTC-TC) player component is added to the typical client support in, for example, an HTML5 player. This component then takes the incoming media stream from the WebRTC connection to create an interface with the local device Content Decryption Module (CDM), offering native SDK-less DRM support via the Encrypted Media Extensions (EME) on the client device. Native DRM license support is requested and applied via the CDM to offer a full range of DRM business models and output control configurations for the rendered video. This approach also can support session-based watermarking technologies.
The EZDRM WebRTC-DRM solution is designed to work with all WebRTC server-side technologies and a full range of HTML5 players and native apps for full DRM support - enabling Widevine, PlayReady, and FairPlay.
