Built to Protect Premium Content


Customers using Axinom DRM with PlayReady 3.0 support are empowered to license a wide range of 4K Hollywood premium content for a variety of consumer devices.

The Most Developer Friendly DRM

Over the last years a great deal of standardization has taken place in the content delivery and protection field, leading to the Common Encryption (CENC) and Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH) international standards that form the underlying pillars of a modern premium video solution.

Axinom DRM provides the maximum benefit for solutions that follow these specifications, enabling wide platform coverage to be reached without significant additional costs. It is a service that aims at the future, providing leading edge capabilities to satisfy content owner requirements and provide additional value to you.

To support existing solutions in a flexible way, backward compatibility is preserved for many previous-generation architectures and capabilities exist for integrating Axinom DRM into an existing product that was previously not DRM-capable.

The developer-friendly Unified API is largely DRM-agnostic and designed with future extensibility in mind. This allows customers to select the best approach for each platform without requiring significant new development. Axinom satisfies the DRM needs of many different software platforms with a single service by simultaneously supporting multiple DRM technologies such as Microsoft PlayReady, Google Widevine, and Apple FairPlay Streaming.

Our API allows service providers to seamlessly integrate our DRM service into their products with all the features requested by the customers, like multi-channel audio and subtitles.

Axinom DRM is developed by developers who actively worked in customer DRM projects for years.

The Power of the Cloud

Although it can run on-premises, Axinom DRM is built for the cloud. For maximum availability, scalability, and performance Axinom DRM supports zero-downtime maintenance and a globally distributed cloud-deployment spanning several public cloud providers.

Axinom’s customers enjoy guaranteed availability of 99.99% and global support 24/7.

Offline DRM

Axinom DRM enables on-board entertainment scenarios in planes, trains, busses, and ships. It is the first multi-DRM product that can operate in a disconnected fashion enabling premium video on board of the vessels.

Axinom DRM for offline use is built to run on low profile hardware with low resource consumption and without any need for cooling. It enables BYOD scenarios for a wide range of consumer devices.

With a scalable licensing model, Axinom DRM is the right choice for service providers interested in building in-flight entertainment systems (IFE), on-board entertainment systems (OBE) or infotainment solutions for healthcare.

Secure Players

The choices available in the field of players are often numerous and there are multiple players available for many modern platforms. The capabilities of different players are greatly variable, not only in the field of DRM but also when it comes to playback capabilities and features. A multi-DRM service gives you the confidence that you will be able to use the best player for the job, regardless of the DRM technology it uses.

Axinom has experience integrating different DRM-capable players into modern multiplatform solutions and can offer any relevant app development, consulting and integration. A thorough research and player comparison effort is usually desired at the start of any project, leading to a proof of concept with the most favored player that best matches the solution feature set.

For our customers it is important to reach the broadest possible audience with the best possible user experience. Client device platforms like TVs, PCs, tablets and smartphones in many cases work best with the respective platform’s native DRM technology. At the same time, using a non-native DRM system on client platforms often leads to subpar user experience and even may incur additional licensing costs.

Axinom DRM as a pure multi DRM service in the cloud solves this out-of-the-box. The old promise of “protect once, deliver everywhere” finally holds true.

Axinom DRM is built from the ground up to target multiple DRM technologies in a uniform manner, enabling customers to target a wide range of platforms. Content protected with Axinom DRM can be consumed on the vast majority of consumer devices like PCs and Macs, iPads, iPhones, Android devices, Windows Phones, as well as Smart TVs, set top boxes, and game consoles.
