WHAT’S HOT IN OT T? The HDR
and codec standards battles, skinny
bundles, and the next video move by
Apple / Amazon / Facebook / (fill in
your favorite). Here at EZDRM, we
would love it, if you were as passionate
about Digital Rights Management
(DRM) trends and technology as
we are. But let’s face it, Digital Right
Management (DRM) is not one of
OTT’s hot topics. Most people simply
don’t want to think about DRM much – the same way
we don’t think about air or water – until we don’t have it.
Then, of course, it becomes crucial to survival.
At EZDRM, we think about how to leverage industry
standards across your infrastructure – your encoders,
your players – so that we can keep our solutions simple,
and you can avoid vendor lock-in. We think about how to
provide solutions that support all your viewer’s devices,
players and browsers, regardless of OS, network type,
or whether online or offline. We consider how to best
handle multi-DRM (Widevine, PlayReady, and FairPlay)
in mixed DASH/HLS stream format environment with
minimal infrastructure – either managed on-premise
or in the cloud. And we stay tuned to the latest industry
developments that will impact DRM technologies, so
that our customers’ DRM solution can evolve with their
network and content requirements.
While we hope that our customers recognize that what
we do is not easy - we all want to be appreciated – the
“EZ” in our name is all about making DRM simple and
seamless for our customers. We recognize that if we are
doing our job right, they are not thinking about DRM.
They don’t have to, because we do. And that is ALL we do.
Our “try before you buy” policy allows you to
experience our DRM solution simplicity – firsthand.
If you’d rather think about monetizing your content,
and not your DRM solution, visit www.ezdrm.com, or

INTRODUCING OPEN SOURCE SRT
It’s not often you can depart from the
day-to-day grind and do something
At NAB 2017, after a huge amount of
development, effort, and deliberation,
we launched a movement in video
streaming the likes of which the industry
has never seen before – SRT open source.
Since then, scores of product vendors
and solution providers in the streaming
and broadcast markets have adopted
For over five years, Haivision customers have turned
to SRT to address some of the toughest challenges. Live
events contributors overcome latency and maximize
bandwidth utilization for “the first mile” ingest (a hugely
beneficial alternative to RTMP ingest). The top sports
leagues use our Makito X encoders with SRT extensively
to drive remote interviews and centralized officiating.
Broadcasters use Haivision solutions with SRT to have
economical return feeds and workflows to assist remote
production. And our encoders and gateways have taken
hold to power core video contribution and distribution
efforts in broadcast on a global network scale.
So why did we take SRT open source? We wanted to provide
an alternative to proprietary technologies for live video
contribution and distribution, expand the ecosystem,
and improve interoperability between different vendors.
We also wanted to lead the market and offer a premier
suite of products supporting the standard. And finally,
but perhaps most importantly, our open source project
makes our entire company, especially our developers, feel
proud that we have made a difference in the community.
Haivision’s innovation and leadership in the video
streaming market has been driven by more than 13
years of excellence in offering high-quality streaming
appliances used by broadcasters, enterprises and defense
organizations worldwide. Open source SRT helps in that
mission, and we’re looking forward to continuing to
disrupt the market and offering the best solutions that
help the world stream better.
