German digital video technology provider castLabs has equipped French broadcaster M6 Group with a multi-DRM license solution for its VOD and live-streaming platform 6play.
Adopting HTML5 playback, M6 Group sought a proven system to simplify the task of digital rights management (DRM) licensing across all screens. The chosen solution was required to handle a large number of license requests per day.
castLabs’ DRMtoday single API integration enabled M6 Group to support the multitude of DRM technologies necessary to reach all screens. DRMtoday also supported integration alongside ad-insertion technologies crucial for 6play’s AVOD business model, and technology partner integrations for live encoding and transcoding.
“castLabs engineers smoothed the important step to move from legacy DRMs and players to latest OTT technology. The integration of DRMtoday has been effortless, and we can now with certainty provide our viewers with a reliable, high performance playback experience while meeting strict studio requirements for DRM protected content,” said Valéry Gerfaud, EVP Digital Innovation Technology at M6 Group.
