Piksel Guard

11Architectural Framework

Architectural Framework

The Architectural Framework is the core of the solution because it hosts all the different DRM technologies.

11Administration Interface

Administration Interface

The Administration Interface permits the configuration of the software system, including the default license properties that the system releases. 

11Adoption of a set of APIs

Adoption of a set of APIs

The set of APIs allows the integration of any external third party components such as policy verification modules and encoder/transcoder.

11Encryption modules

Encryption modules

The Encryption Modules are fundamental because they allow to use different DRM technologies when content encryption is not directly performed as part of the encoding/transcoding processes.

11Easy integration

Easy integration

The solution can be easily integrated with encoder/ transcoder of third-party vendors for the exchange of encryption secrets.

11Client device implementation

Client device implementation

The implementation of the client device allows the playback of the DRM protected content on a number of different types of devices.
