Axinom DRM

Modern premium video solutions require the use of different DRM technologies in order to reach a wide audience. Our services focus on this multi-DRM scenario and are designed to offer great flexibility to you.

A cloud-first DRM service enables premium video solutions to be created with minimal technology integration effort while providing great scalability and maintenance-free operation. We focus on serving your needs with the flexibility you expect and a level of security that content providers can accept with confidence.

Leveraging the Common Encryption specification satisfies the DRM needs of many different software platforms with a single service by simultaneously supporting multiple DRM technologies. This allows you to select the best approach for each platform without requiring significant new development. The APIs offered by our service are largely DRM-agnostic and designed with future extensibility in mind.

Axinom DRM has been undergoing active development since it was first offered in 2009 and constant customer feedback has enabled it to become highly flexible, with a single service satisfying the needs of many different solutions in often challenging environments. It can be found serving licenses to set-top boxes, mobile apps, websites, in-flight entertainment systems and more.

Explore the key benefits of Axinom DRM.

Multi-DRM

Most platforms have a native DRM technology that can be used for video playback with minimal effort. The use of 3rd party DRM technologies in an app often incurs a technology licensing fee which can be avoided by using the native technology. As a result, a modern premium video architecture is generally based on multi-DRM principles, optimizing for best platform coverage at minimal licensing cost.

Axinom DRM is built from the ground up to target multiple DRM technologies in a uniform manner, enabling you to target a wide range of platforms without technology licensing fees and without significant additional software development.

The two DRM technologies currently targeted by Axinom are Microsoft PlayReady and Google Widevine, with more being considered for the roadmap.

Modern standards

Over the last years a great deal of standardization has taken place in the content delivery and protection field, leading to the Common Encryption (CENC) and Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH) international standards that form the underlying pillars of a modern premium video solution.

Axinom DRM provides the maximum benefit for solutions that follow these specifications, enabling wide platform coverage to be reached without significant additional costs. It is a service that aims at the future, providing leading edge capabilities to satisfy content owner requirements and provide additional value to you.

To support existing solutions in a flexible way, backward compatibility is preserved for many previous-generation architectures and capabilities exist for integrating Axinom DRM into an existing product that was previously not DRM-capable.

Player integration

The choices available in the field of players are often numerous and there are multiple players available for many modern platforms. The capabilities of different players are greatly variable, not only in the field of DRM but also when it comes to playback capabilities and features. A multi-DRM service gives you the confidence that you will be able to use the best player for the job, regardless of the DRM technology it uses.

Axinom has experience integrating different DRM-capable players into modern multiplatform solutions and can offer any relevant app development, consulting and integration. A thorough research and player comparison effort is usually desired at the start of any project, leading to a proof of concept with the most favored player that best matches the solution feature set.
