As described in Part 1 of this two-part series, DVB operators are pursuing hybrid broadcast-OTT strategies by exploiting the smart TV as the increasingly dominant viewing platform. This paper focuses on broadcasters’ need for content protection that will secure both DVB and OTT services, but free of outmoded approaches with conditional access systems (CAS) and set-top-boxes (STBs). The advanced processing capabilities of modern smart TV chips make it possible to eliminate the costs and inconveniences of CAS and STBs.

The OTT industry’s landmark shift to live streaming has spawned a wave in online piracy that requires new approaches to protecting content. The good news is that advanced tools and techniques are now available, which surpass legacy OTT security optimized for on-demand viewing.
In this white paper we define the content protection needs for the live streaming era, including security measures detailed by MovieLabs for 4K UHD and HDR-enhanced content. We then look at cloud-based solutions that streamline multi-DRM operations and minimize latency, the options for live-optimized watermarking systems, followed by advanced live streaming content protection and anti-piracy services for OTT operators.
Live streaming of sports and other linear content has gone mainstream as consumers increasingly turn to OTT services for programming they once could only get from traditional TV providers.
However, mounting losses due to media piracy, tempered only momentarily by the coronavirus-induced sports lull, have triggered demand for tools and procedures that go well beyond security systems optimized for on-demand viewing.
In this white paper we take a closer look at the audience and revenue of live streaming, the role of sports, the UHD/HDR factor, sensitivities to live streaming latency, and the impact of piracy and associated attack modes.
In today’s OTT video streaming universe, the number of service contenders has risen dramatically with the latest entrants like Disney+ and NBC Universal’s Peacock service. With so much choice, competition for eyeballs is higher than ever. These days viewers of course expect access to content anytime and on any device, with limited patience for operators that do not meet such expectations. This makes it challenging for operators to effectively monetize their services while also protecting the content against piracy in various forms.
Intertrust was delighted to be part of Bitmovin Live: APAC Edition 2020, on June 17, with a particular focus on how to control costs, mitigate risk and manage your video workflow.
The presentation, which is available on demand, covers these important topics for OTT video streaming operators:
• Advanced OTT streaming security challenges
• Weighing “buy vs. build” options for a multi-DRM solution
• Minimizing total cost of ownership (TCO)
• CMAF and streamlined packaging workflow
In this IABM TV interview, Ali Hodjat (Director Product Marketing, Intertrust Technologies) offers some advice on building a multi-DRM solution.
