Integration of Discretix SecurePlayer and Harmonic’s ProMedia™ Package enable secure live streaming on iOS and Android Devices using Microsoft PlayReady

Discretix today announced that its SecurePlayer supports Harmonic’s ProMedia Package to deliver secure live streaming video to mobile devices. The integration of these two technologies will enable the delivery of Microsoft® PlayReady® protected live TV and video on demand (VOD) streams to Android and iOS devices.

The integrated solution is already been deployed as part of mobile VOD and TV applications by leading service providers in Asia and Europe. The solution supports both Smooth Streaming and HTTP Live Streaming (HLS), with support for MPEG DASH planned in future releases. As part of the partnership Harmonic’s ProMedia™ Package product is integrated with the Discretix SecurePlayer utilizing Microsoft® PlayReady® DRM.

Harmonic’s ProMedia™ Package is a carrier-grade adaptive stream preparation system for scalable, secure, high-value Internet video services. This multiscreen packager allows multiple steams or H.264 video and associated audio to be combined selectively, into any of the most popular HTTP adaptive bit-rate protocols, enabling new multiscreen services.
“Effective delivery of high quality video to mobile devices requires tight integration between the client player solution and the transcoding server,” said Yossi Hermush, VP Marketing, Content Protection of Discretix. “The integrated solution from Harmonic and Discretix enables secure live video streaming to mobile devices.”

“The ability to protect multiple HTTP protocols and secure Microsoft, iOS and Android devices with one DRM scheme is key for our customers”, said Thierry Fautier, Senior Director Convergence Solutions at Harmonic. “Discretix’ in-depth DRM domain expertise together with comprehensive support for HLS makes the SecurePlayer an ideal solution for the OTT market.”
