Intertrust Introduces Standards-based DRM Platform for Mobile and Desktop Applications
Sunnyvale, CA., September 12, 2012 – Intertrust Technologies Corporation today released Wasabi Express™, a standards-based next generation DRM platform for mobile and desktop applications. Wasabi Express together with the Company’s DRM Cloud Services provides a single solution for service providers that want to distribute content using a Marlin DRM-compliant media player.
“Wasabi Express offers the ideal combination of a fully integrated Marlin client SDK with tamper resistance technology and DRM cloud services,” said Gilles Boccon-Gibod, senior vice president and chief architect for Intertrust Technologies. “Marlin is being used as part of national initiatives in Europe and Asia as the primary protection technology for distributing digital content. Wasabi Express technology will enable these ecosystems to build services with downloadable applications quickly and easily. Today’s upgrade means that these ecosystems will now be able to integrate those applications on desktop and mobile platforms with a single license.”
Service providers, technology solutions providers and developers using Wasabi Express will have access to technologies that enable them to implement new content distribution business models for delivering over-the-top content to mobile and PC platforms. Wasabi Express offers extensive support for download and adaptive streaming media distribution models (including MPEG-DASH and HLS). It also enables content portability and compatibility with other Marlin clients and services.
Wasabi Express is protected by tamper resistance technology from Intertrust’s whiteCryption subsidiary.
Prior to Wasabi Express, developers got separate licenses for the technology specification, the software development kit and tamper resistance technology, and contracted with cloud services providers for the digital certificates and DRM licenses. While this à la carte option is still possible for developers who wish to employ their own tools for some or all of these technologies, Wasabi Express provides a “one stop” option that is easy to use and deploy. It eliminates major deployment overhead and reduces time to market.
