Alticast has joined the "Certified Widevine Implementation Partner Program," a designation that is intended to expand content security options for pay TV operators worldwide.

As a modular DRM partner, Alticast's AltiProtect Multi-DRM product is intended to support Widevine DRM as one of several security solutions within a single infrastructure. AltiProtect is designed to enable a single point of control and transparent customer experience for delivery of content streams from multiple sources - and using multiple security mechanisms - within multi-service, multi-device environments.

Widevine DRM is available on a range of platforms and is currently deployed on more than 2 billion devices. The Widevine solution combines Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH), Common Encryption (CENC) and Encrypted Media Extensions (ENE) to provide multiplatform content protection.

Studio-approved, AltiProtect uses industry standards to ensure content protection for broadcast and VOD, and can adapt to unique network infrastructures.

"AltiProtect is a dynamic CAS/DRM solution that already secures content on millions of deployed devices," said Dr. Misung Cho, security technology lead for Alticast. "With Widevine, we can expand the available content catalogs for partnering in a heterogeneous content delivery environment."

Alticast will demonstrate a variety of products and solutions for pay TV operators at IBC 2016 in September in Amsterdam.
