Preparing for the Digital Future
Intertrust will be exhibiting next week at AfricaCom 2018, the continent’s largest media and technology event. Join us at Booth E75A for live demonstrations, and see firsthand how Intertrust media products are enabling broadcasters and network operators to embrace the convergence between broadcast and OTT
– while saving them time and money.
Intertrust media products to be showcased include:
- ExpressPlay XCA™, the future of broadcast TV. Based on the popular open standard-based Marlin DRM, XCA is a modern, card-less conditional access system (CAS) that leverages hardware security in smart TVs and set-top-box chipsets to provide world-class content security at a fraction of the price of a legacy CAS.
- Intertust Kiora™, a secure offline content distribution platform that enables content providers to publish and deliver content in domains where internet bandwidth is inaccessible or unavailable.
Intertrust ExpressPlay XCA™ White Paper: Bridging DRM and CAS
Consumers are increasingly opting for Internet-based over-the-top TV (OTT) over traditional linear TV. However, there is still a large population of consumers of linear TV who have not yet cut the cord and the lure of live sports broadcasting is one key type of content that is likely to keep them there for the foreseeable future. Linear TV broadcasters will have to embrace both OTT and traditional broadcast networks. With the popularity of OTT, digital rights management (DRM) is supplanting traditional conditional access systems (CAS) as the content protection technology of choice. The winning content protection technology needs to be future perfect and past-proof. This paper discusses the requirements for such a solution.
2018 Global Overview of Live OTT Sports White Paper
This white paper covers the OTT live sports markets in North America, Europe, India and China including statistics on the increase in viewership and which companies are capitalizing on this opportunity. Also discussed are the challenges and opportunities in scaling for millions of synchronistic viewers including support for large throughput, potential latency issues, content protection, delivery and media monetization.
