Atlas DRM

Scalable cloud service for content protection

Atlas DRM allows iStreamPlanet customers to securely deliver media to millions of users on dozens of the most popular playback devices.

Why Atlas DRM?

We at iStreamPlanet understand what it means to successfully distribute premium video content at scale. With over 15 years of experience, iStreamPlanet has seen the complexity that arises from multiple systems integration and all the requirements for large-scale video distribution. In order to simplify and scale content protection across all necessary systems – encoding, packaging, CDN distribution, policy & entitlement, and client player integrations – we created Atlas DRM.

Atlas DRM is available to premium content owners and distributors, either in conjunction with the Aventus encoding and packaging platform, or as a stand-alone content protection solution.

Atlas DRM allows content owners to scale their business up or down, accommodating planned growth and variable demand without upfront capital, dedicated hardware resources, or long deployment times.
