What is Digital Rights Management (DRM)

What is Digital Rights Management (DRM)

IdeaNova is a leader in Digital Rights Management. Before understanding the intricacies of how our systems function, it is helpful to first understand what our company does and why. Digital Rights Management, or DRM, is the protection of digital media.  This includes the prevention of content distribution without authorization.  A perfect example is that mobile devices now have a new feature called screen recording. With inflight entertainment now able to be streamed via one’s own personal device, content must be protected so one cannot record and share their recently watched entertainment.

Why Care about Digital Rights Management

DRM protects us all. This is because as the creators of original content (whether it be entertainment, media, writing or any digitally distributed intellectual property) we are the final decision makers in how we want that content to be handled.  DRM protects this content from unauthorized usage.

How IdeaNova Helps

Our Inplay products provide solutions for content encryption, license issuance and playback.  In addition, we work with all major DRM software vendors, which include: Google Widevine, Apple FairPlay and Microsoft PlayReady. Our Inplay Portal was a top 3 finalist at the APEX awards in their Entertainment category. One feature of this portal is protecting studio content. IdeaNova takes into account the compatibility of various license systems used on different system such as iOS, Android and Windows. Therefore, we can both protect studio content to the highest degree while also being able to provide this high-quality content to passengers everywhere.

Future of DRM

In summary, DRM will always be a key issue in navigating the digital world.
