DRMtoday multi-digital rights management licence delivery network technology from premium video technology provider castLabs has been installed French media firm M6 Group across its 6play VOD and live streaming digital platform.

castlabs m6 11july2018Explaining the rationale for the deployment, M6 Group said that after adopting HTML5 playback it was seeking a proven solution to simplify the task of DRM licensing across all screens. The appropriate solution needed to be able to handle a large number of license requests per-day as the 6play digital platform is the repository for a large variety of multi-genre content from M6, which claims to be France’s most profitable private TV station, and its associated 13 digital satellite and cable channels.

DRMtoday single API integration enabled M6 Group to support the various DRM technologies necessary to reach all screens without hassle. DRMtoday also supported integration alongside ad-insertion technologies that are seen as crucial for 6play’s AVOD business model, and technology partner integrations for live encoding and transcoding.

“castLabs engineers smoothed the important step to move from legacy DRMs and players to the latest OTT technology,” revealed Valéry Gerfaud EVP digital innovation technology at Groupe M6. The integration of DRMtoday has been effortless, and we can now with certainty provide our viewers with a reliable, high performance playback experience while meeting strict studio requirements for DRM protected content.”
