Swedish multi-screen-video enabler Aspiro TV soon will be offering Google’s Widevine Digital Rights Management (DRM) solutions as part of its hosted video over-the-top (OTT) services.

According to Google, which acquired Widevine in 2010, its DRM solutions are used by Warner Bros, VUDU, Netflix, YouTube video hosting and by IPTV operators to protect streamed and downloaded digital content against illegal copying.

For operators, a key advantage of Widevine DRM is quality content protection fully matching copyright holder requirements, according to Aspiro, allowing subscribers to watch videos protected by Widevine on their smartphones, tablets, set-top boxes, smart TVs or laptops that use various OS and browsers.

This deal makes Aspiro a certified DRM implementation partner, able to work with any partner that wants to deploy Widevine DRM onto their own local TV/VOD platforms.
