The KeyOS MultiKey Service is approved for the delivery of standard definition and high definition premium studio approved DRM content to desktops, devices, consoles and streaming appliances.
BuyDRM has pioneered DRM as a Service (DaaS), providing highly robust DRM technologies available through easy to deploy, secure APIs. Using a variety of common programming languages, the KeyOS Platform enables major studios, content licensees and OTT operators to quickly deploy studio-approved DRM within their existing content workflow.
Tony Huidor, Vice President of Product & Digital Operations for Cinedigm remarked, “BuyDRM’s KeyOS MultiKey Platform has allowed us to take our service to the next level by allowing us to distribute major Hollywood studio content to most connected devices. Their KeyOS Multi-DRM platform helped us provide the security level expected from the major studios in order to secure distribution rights to their film content.”
