BuyDRM has announced Linux support for its MultiKey Server, a multi-DRM software platform specifically designed for deployments in remote or limited connectivity environments.

MultiKey buyDRM 29Aug2019This new release from BuyDRM can run on various Linux- compatible chipsets like Raspberry PI, ARM, and Intel, which are widely used for delivering premium video content. The MultiKey Server for Linux is now in early beta stage testing with a variety of BuyDRM clients, partners and resellers.

“The move to support Linux with MultiKey Server was primarily born out of the need for solutions for In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) and hospitality deployments,” said Andrew Popov, BuyDRM CTO. “In environments where connectivity is non-existent or intermittent, the secure delivery of video relies solely on a server-based solution. The MultiKey Server fills the need to securely distribute and manage digital rights from your own network, on your premise or in your own cloud infrastructure using more scalable computing platforms.”

The platform will launch 1 November.

“As a leading OEM of core DRM technologies in the media and entertainment industries, Google Widevine sees an expanding marketplace in the IFE, travel and hospitality industries” said Brian Baker, head of Widevine Business at Google. “BuyDRM’s new MultiKey Server for Linux now extends Widevine DRM into these industries enabling consumers to consume premium content in more places and ways.”
