Microsoft PlayReady DRM technology offers a comprehensive content delivery and management solution for mobile devices, set top boxes, consumer electronics products and software platforms.

SILICON:

Highly secure. Highly flexible.

More than ever before, studios and content owners are requesting hardware-assisted protection for their content. Integration of PlayReady into a new chipset provides value to the end user and ensures compatibility with a growing, DRM standard.

Microsoft’s DRM technology allows manufacturers to match and surpass the requirements of studios and content owners for top level protection and directly increases the value of a chipset by touching more elements in the video pipeline.

By offering a universal DRM solution, PlayReady allows OEMs and device manufacturers to increase product value with new services like OTT and VOD and decrease production costs through a simplified production chain.
