NexStreaming and Google Widevine Launch an HLS Player SDK with Content Protection

MADRID--()--NexStreaming (KOSDAQ:139670) announced today that they have partnered with Google to release an HLS player SDK secured with Widevine DRM for any Android and iOS app.

Video service providers are now able to deploy encrypted HLS and DASH OTT mobile apps with the advanced playback and streaming capabilities of NexPlayer SDK while ensuring that the content will be protected with Google Widevine. In order to make this possible, a Widevine DRM library is pre-integrated into NexPlayer SDK, securing the best video quality and user experience across all mobile devices.

NexPlayer with Widevine features the same streaming and playback capabilities as NexPlayer SDK, including intelligent ABR, HLS, DASH, closed captioning, multiple audio tracks, time shifting and the possibility to add 360 video navigation support.

Carlos Lucas, GM of NexPlayer at NexStreaming said: “Secure content is key for a sustainable business in the video industry. Our partnership with Google shows our strong commitment to it, with an innovative, ready to go and cost-effective solution.”

Brian Baker, Head of Widevine Business at Google said: “The integration with NexStreaming provides video service providers with the capability to seamlessly support protected HLS and DASH across all device platforms.”
