Widevine Technologies

Widevine provides video optimization and digital rights management (DRM) solutions that enable Internet content providers and cable, satellite and telecommunication companies to provide an over-the-top environment for the ultimate customer viewing experience.

Widevine’s video optimization utilizes adaptive streaming to dynamically adjust video quality to available bandwidth, for a smooth, consistent broadcast TV experience. Video optimization also enables a DVD- like user experience by supporting full trick play, chaptering and bookmarking. Both live and on-demand content are supported by Widevine’s video optimization.

Widevine multiplatform DRM enables licensing of premium content across a range of consumer electronic platforms that traditional DRM solutions don’t, including STBs, PVRs, PCs, and Macs; and Internet-enabled Blu-ray players, TVs, home media gateways, gaming platforms and mobile platforms. Designed to support global or regional distribution, Widevine layers multiple geo-filtering mechanisms to minimize the impact of proxy attacks used to access content outside of a licensed geography.

Widevine’s customers can manage, deliver and monetize a consumer’s total access to broadcast TV, Internet digital media, music, and more. From ad-supported to subscription-based business models, Widevine enables customers to provide consumers with all of their digital entertainment needs, for life.
