The emergence of streaming as a crucial component of pay-TV business models has spawned unprecedented online piracy. Reversing this worrisome trend requires a new, innovative approach that goes well beyond legacy security platforms optimized for traditional broadcasting and streaming services.

To ensure robust content protection in this new era, Intertrust offers the ExpressPlay Media Security Suite, comprising cloud-based multi-DRM service, anti-piracy and forensic watermarking services, and a new approach for broadcast security based on the open-standard Marlin DRM.

Next-generation security for broadcast content delivery

Today’s smart TV vendors provide STB-level security, enabling content protection processing to shift from the STB to the rendering device. Smart TV-centric content protection eliminates HDMI ripping and lowers TCO by retiring the STBs, thus maximizing overall security.
