How Does It Work? - Protecting Content

We created the instaDRM platform focusing on security and ease of use. Our platform has a well-documented and simple API that can allow you to implement PlayReady encryption into your content preparation pipeline within minutes.

The instaDRM tool is also compatible with a number of industry standard transcoding/transmuxing tools, to allow for a quick and painless integration into your existing content preparation pipeline.

If you are new to this process then our experts will work with you to ensure that PlayReady is implemented properly and we can also recommend other tools that work well with instaDRM.

How Does It Work? - Unlocking Content

Once a file wrapped with PlayReady DRM is released into the public domain it cannot be played without a valid PlayReady license being supplied to the device. This license can be requested when the user streams your content, plays a downloaded file or before playback when taking media offline. 

When a user requests a license, this information is verified with the instaDRM license server and your system, to confirm that a license can be released to the user for playback.

When integrated with the instaPLAYER this entire process works seamlessly in the background allowing the user to watch their movie or TV show on their device without interruption.
