BuyDRM Now Supports Apple FairPlay DRM

Posted by Gabe Elton on Aug 12, 2016 2:41:08 PM



We are proud to announce that BuyDRM now supports Apple FairPlay! 


Continuing our trend as a pacesetter in the DRM space, we now offer nearly every DRM technology available via our OTT multi-DRM platform, KeyOS. The KeyOS Smooth DRM Service supports all popular browser combinations and playback platforms.

KeyOS OTT Multi-DRM Platform

As a major provider of OTT multi-DRM solutions to broadcasters, studios, and Fortune 500 companies, BuyDRM continues to expand the features of the KeyOS Platform. We now deliver PlayReady, Widevine, Marlin and FairPlay licenses to any modern browser with HTML5 playback without the use of plug-ins. We will make an announcement about further brands in the coming weeks prior to IBC. Subscribe to The DRM Blog to stay up-to-date and click here to schedule an IBC meeting.

What You Need to Know to Deploy:KeyOS_FairPlay_Integration_Overview_extended11

To support FairPlay in the KeyOS Smooth DRM Service, a BuyDRM customer / content owner must get a FairPlay Streaming license and a FairPlay Streaming Server SDK from Apple. The BuyDRM customer then provides their private key and application secret key to BuyDRM and we use this to enable content encryption and license key delivery for our KeyOS SmoothDRM Service for FairPlay. 

To apply for an Apple FairPlay Streaming SDK License Click Here.

KeyOS Compatibility Matrix:

Internet Explorer/Edge = PlayReady in HTML5 on Microsoft Windows 

Google Chrome/Mozilla Firefox = Widevine in HTML5 on Microsoft Windows and Apple OSX 

Safari = FairPlay in HTML5 on Apple OSX

BuyDRM provides a FairPlay packaging solution for your Pantos Spec HLS content and a FairPlay DRM licensing platform. Both of these solutions work via APIs and our implementation is compatible with major playback solutions like JWPlayer.
