Content delivery network (CDN) provider Limelight Networks (NASDAQ:LLNW) has added an integrated digital rights management (DRM) solution to its Video Delivery Services to simplify the encryption and delivery of content in multiple DRM formats while reducing the costs of managing and storing the encrypted content.

Limelight's new Multi-DRM On the Fly solution is designed to let content distributors control what end users can do with video and audio streams such as sharing, recording, or viewing only. It includes server-based licensing, software, and implementation services. Video on demand (VOD) content is stored as a single master file and automatically encoded in HLS or MPEG-DASH format with Google Widevine, Microsoft PlayReady or Apple FairPlay DRM encryption as it's requested by viewers.

"Limelight's Multi-device Media Delivery (MMD) On-Demand (OD) is trusted by some of the world's leading content distributors. MMD OD simplifies the creation and distribution of video on demand content by automatically transmuxing MP4 files into streaming media formats. The addition of Multi-DRM On the Fly capabilities to MMD OD makes it easier to secure content without worrying about which browser, device or platform is being used," said Steve Miller-Jones, senior director of product management at Limelight Networks. "Limelight continues to focus on helping customers monetize their video content by simplifying the management of DRM protected content and delivering the lowest video rebuffer rates in the industry."
