With consumer demand for content anytime, anywhere rising sharply and the TV Everywhere movement continuing to gain steam, Irdeto is broadening its platform-agnostic ActiveCloak for Media solution by adding support for Android and HLS Streaming.
ActiveCloak for Media protects high-value content delivered over-the-top or through the home network, helping content owners, operators and CE manufacturers protect and monetize digital entertainment assets across a wide range of consumer devices, regardless of whether they’re driven by open or proprietary systems.
ActiveCloak has been expanded to include premium content protection for Android applications in addition to existing customer deployments onApple iOS, PC, Mac and embedded set-top box and connected TV platforms.
Because adaptive bitrate streaming is key to creating an excellent consumer experience, the solution now also provides full support of HTTP Live Streaming technology (HLS) in addition to Irdeto’s existing support of Microsoft IIS Smooth Streaming.
The broadened reach of ActiveCloak will give media companies a toolkit to protect premium assets (including HD content), build the trust of content owners and Hollywood studios, secure more digital entertainment and reduce time to market on a broad variety of popular consumer devices.
Irdeto’s ActiveCloak technology is already present in marquee solutions from major global cable operators and OTT providers including Netflix, Adobe, Sony, Logitech and Comcast.
