Yospace offers HLS SDK for Flash Player (AES-CBC decryption, CC/subtitling and DASH support announced)

Yospace offers HLS SDK for Flash Player (AES-CBC decryption, CC/subtitling and DASH support announced) | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

 Yospace, a U.K. content distributor specializing in the development of multi-screen streaming, is offering a HLS player for Flash it says “allows broadcasters and content owners to reduce the number of formats it needs to encode and store, while maintaining service for the huge installed base of Flash users during the transition towards HTML5.”

 

The software behind the HLS Flash Player originally was developed as part of Yospace’s advertising-replacement system, which it says allows broadcasters to tailor online streaming of their linear channels to the interests of individual users.

 

“The functionality has now been extracted and is available as an SDK for developers to make their Flash Player HLS-stream-compatible,” Yospace explains. The new player reportedly reduces the number of formats that need to be distributed and, thus, the CDN charges without reducing the service to any consumer.

IBC content protection: a bomb-proof shelter inside a SoC

IBC content protection: a bomb-proof shelter inside a SoC | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

Pay TV security is an ongoing battle between operators and not just pirates but also individuals who would rather not pay for the service. At the same time, operators have one hand tied behind their backs because unlike in banking, customers are not bothered if someone next door is hacking into their service.This rules out biometric techniques to authenticate users since people are unwilling to have their eyeballs examined to get at their premium content.

 

At IBC this year there was a growing view among operators and security vendors that no single technology can defeat the pirates, especially as services extend to multiple devices in TV Anywhere and OTT deployments. There is also recognition that defences against increasingly sophisticated attacks on encryption keys held in System on a Chip (SoC) components in set-top boxes, home gateways and other devices require stronger defences.

 

For this reason the San Francisco based cryptography company Cryptography Research has gained significant traction among both silicon manufacturers and conditional access (CA) vendors, leading to two significant announcements during the show :

- firstly, the company announced that a fourth Pay TV SoC vendor, MStar Semiconductor, was licensing its CryptoFirewall technology in addition to Broadcom, ST Microelectronics and ViXS, which are already on board.

- a licensing agreement with CA vendor Verimatrix
