What is DRM?

DRM (Digital Rights Management) is a technology that protects content from piracy. The Wowza DRM AddOn provides integration with third-party DRM key management systems: BuyDRM™ KeyOS™, EZDRM, and Verimatrix® VCAS™.  

The Wowza Streaming Engine™ software encrypts content dynamically by using Microsoft® PlayReady® or Verimatrix® VCAS™ for play in clients that support Apple® HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) and Microsoft Smooth Streaming. Third-party DRM key management systems (such as BuyDRM™, KeyOS™, and EZDRM) handle the keys used to decrypt content.
