AuthenTec and Harmonic are jointly developing digital rights management (DRM) solutions that work seamlessly with Harmonic video encoders to enable streaming of PlayReady multimedia content on Apple and Android mobile phones and tablets.

“With the proven encryption key technology of AuthenTec’s DRM Fusion offerings working in concert with our family of encoders, customers can encrypt live video on the fly and play it back smoothly on the appropriate end user device,” said Thierry Fautier, senior director/Convergence Solutions at Harmonic, in a statement.

When live content reaches a Harmonic video encoder, a request is sent to an AuthenTec-enabled DRM server for encryption keys. Video is then encoded and encrypted in PlayReady format and sent to authorized end users for smooth playback on a tablet or phone equipped with an AuthenTec DRM agent.

The complete solution is available now and will be demonstrated at IBC2011 in Amsterdam, September 9-13.
