UHD/4K Support

Compliance with MovieLabs specifications for premium content deployments such as UHD/4K resolution and early release availability

With industry-leading encryption options, a trusted execution environment, HDCP 2.2 Compliance, and watermarking, ExpressPlay UHD is one of the most simple and secure ways to protect premium content.

Watermarking While a traditional DRM service provides security only when accessing content, ExpressPlay supports session-based watermarking to track any unauthorized redistribution of premium content. ExpressPlay has partnered with Content Armor and Friend MTS, to embed state-of-art forensic watermarking that remains with the content, regardless of how it might be transcoded or altered.
