Hollywood studios require enhanced Hardware Security for premium UHD/4K content to ensure that their content is delivered securely. 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.Learn more
Marlin DRM gives users the ability to enjoy protected content even when an Internet connection isn’t available. Our partners use this feature to provide entertainment to passengers in airplanes, trains and taxis, as well as to users in locations with under-developed broadband infrastructure. Learn more
What people are saying about ExpressPlay
Session-based watermarking is critically important, particularly in a large market such as China. ExpressPlay’s offering allows us to aggressively pursue new distribution opportunities that consumers want, such as early-window movie releases that are much closer to theatrical release dates, while appropriately managing the piracy risk that comes with them.

We selected Intertrust’s ExpressPlay DRM technology for two reasons. It is a proven technology used in consumer devices like TVs and consumer gaming consoles, and meets all of our IFE specific requirements for eXW. With ExpressPlay, our customers can offer a premium wireless entertainment experience backed by robust security endorsed and approved by the leading content providers that serve our industry.

After investigating different DRM options for the Italian market, we chose Marlin because it is an open standard, pan-European, and allows us the flexibility we need to build out a sophisticated yet user-driven service. ExpressPlay provides a scalable and cost-effective solution for building out our services. With ExpressPlay, we do not need to build and maintain our own server farms for Marlin, as we can leverage Intertrust’s robust cloud services instead.
YouView and ExpressPlay grew up together. ExpressPlay was developed to provide companies such as Channel 5 with a cloud based license delivery service, making it easier to complete those tasks.

We chose ExpressPlay because it was developed by Intertrust, the global leader in DRM and trusted computing technologies. ExpressPlay’s use of Marlin DRM has a proven track record in Japan when it was selected by the Japan IPTV Forum in 2008 and deployed to every connected TV and set top box in our country. By licensing ExpressPlay, we will continue to offer secure, premium content pleasing both content distribution companies and our customers.
