SMPTE Newswatch: DRM Drama

SMPTE Newswatch: DRM Drama | DRM video | Scoop.it

Digital Rights Management (DRM), at its most basic level, has traditionally been considered as the strategic use of technology to monitor and enforce intellectual property licensing agreements by controlling access to digital content as it is being distributed, protecting it from unauthorized use or downright theft. In the modern world, however, the notion of "broadcasting video" now includes over-the-air terrestrial signal distribution, along with cable, satellite, Internet, and mobile/data network broadcasting of content to, seemingly, an unlimited number of viewing devices. In that universe, the DRM label represents a constantly evolving, often proprietary, network of technologies and protocols used by broadcasters to secure the links of a content chain wherever those links are heading.

UltraViolet: Another DRM dead-end for Internet video

UltraViolet: Another DRM dead-end for Internet video | DRM video | Scoop.it

At first glance, I thought UltraViolet was just what I needed to put my movie collection online. I was wrong.

 

UltraViolet sounded good. "UltraViolet is DVD for the Internet. Just as the DVD logo means that you can buy a DVD from any seller and expect it to play in any player with a DVD logo (DVD players, DVD PCs, DVD entertainment systems in automobiles, and so on), the UltraViolet logo means you can buy UltraViolet movies from any seller, keep track of your 'online locker' or 'virtual collection' of movies, and expect them to play on anything with the UltraViolet logo (PCs, tablets, smartphones, Blu-ray players, cable set-top boxes, and so on)."

 

Oh well, lots of things sound good at first.

The case for a common DRM framework

The case for a common DRM framework | DRM video | Scoop.it

It is possible to overstate the complexity of multi-screen video, but the absolute number and types of display devices are indeed increasing, which means that efforts to promote standards and greater simplicity address a live concern. A current initiative, playing out within the MPEG-DASH Industry Forum, among other places, to enable digital rights management (DRM) interoperability is a case in point.

 

Building his case for a common downloadable DRM framework that is independent of but compatible with CE devices of all shapes and sizes, Tranter (VP at NDS, now part of Cisco) names three standards that could play a foundational role, namely:

* Simulcrypt—the long-standing DVB protocol published by ETSI used to enable multiple key management systems;
* MPEG-DASH—Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH), which became an ISO standard in late 2011; and
* UltraViolet—an authentication and cloud-based rights system deployed over the past few years by a consortium of studios, manufacturers and service providers.

UltraViolet Gets Two Lifelines

UltraViolet Gets Two Lifelines | DRM video | Scoop.it

A panel at this week’s CES show in Las Vegas yielded two pieces of positive news for the DECE/UltraViolet standard, after a launch several months ago with Warner Bros. and its Flixster subsidiary that could charitably be called “premature.” Of the two news items, one is a nice to have, but the other is a game-changer.
