castLabs and Phenix's new partnership brings DRM to real-time video streaming

We're proud to announce our collaboration with castLabs, a global pioneer in digital video delivery technology.  Through this partnership, we will be integrating the secure playback solutions, DRM for WebRTC, to bolster security and content protection within real-time video streaming applications.

Signifying a groundbreaking advancement in real-time DRM for WebRTC, this partnership brings unparalleled real-time DRM capabilities that set a new industry standard.

Key benefits of this partnership:

  • End-to-end media encryption: DRM for WebRTC provides end-to-end media encryption of WebRTC video streams and remote desktop sharing, bringing industry-standard DRM systems such as Google Widevine, Apple FairPlay Streaming, and Microsoft PlayReady to WebRTC streams.
  • Enhanced security: By integrating robust DRM technologies into Phenix's real-time video streaming platform, users can enjoy secure and encrypted streaming experiences without compromising on quality.
  • Content protection: Content creators and distributors can now protect their valuable content from piracy and unauthorized access, ensuring that their investments are secure. Leveraging a browser’s Content Decryption Module (CDM), true standards-based content protection is provided with end-to-end security over and above standard TLS encryption. Streams are also blacked-out during client-side screen recording to prevent content copying and restreaming.
  • An extra layer of security: castLab's revolutionary single-frame forensic watermarking technology offers unparalleled authentication, copyright protection, and content leak tracking capabilities add an extra layer of security for content owners and rights holders to easily safeguard their intellectual property, protect their monetization models, and enforce their rights in the digital landscape.
  • Seamless integration: The partnership aims to provide an easy and seamless integration process, enabling developers and businesses to implement advanced DRM solutions without hassle.
  • Global reach: Together with Phenix, castLabs is committed to expanding the reach of WebRTC-based DRM solutions, ensuring that businesses worldwide can benefit from the security at scale this collaboration creates.
  • Enable monetization: Adding DRM to WebRTC opens up new real-time streaming monetization model opportunities not easily available before.
