Secure the content your viewers love. Serve it up on every screen for maximum value.

Streaming intensifies the need for cast iron security

The rise of video streaming is putting broadcasters under enormous pressure. OTT services create unprecedented competition for the best content, just as TV advertising revenues are in decline. To win the rights to attractive shows in the era of increasingly sophisticated online piracy, broadcasters must keep up with the changing requirements of studios and rights holders. Preparation and distribution workflows also need to protect the value of content made in-house.

OTT has potential as well as threats for broadcasters

Although the pressure from OTT rivals is intense, many broadcasters are also finding their own OTT opportunities with direct-to-consumer services. Live streams and rich libraries of archive content can generate new AVOD or SVOD revenue streams from local and overseas markets. But developing such services brings increased complexity at a time when operational expenditure is being squeezed.

Irdeto’s products can help you seize the new opportunities of OTT as you protect your broadcast business from online threats. Watermarking and anti-piracy services will get you match-fit for your content rights battles, while Multi-DRM and Media Manager (and advertising) solutions simplify and secure your direct-to-consumer operations.
