Dr. Stefan Arbanowski focuses attention on HTTP adaptive streaming and a common DRM-interoperable encryption in his lecture. These are key factors for Internet delivered video. The presentation covers how these requirements can be deployed in HTML5 using W3C EME and MSE. As an example implementation, the Fraunhofer FOKUS FAMIUM Framework is presented. It is as an end-to-end prototype meant for early technology evaluation and interoperability testing. FAMIUM illustrates how these different technologies and standards work together. Additionally we show a demonstration during the demo slot: End-to-end implementation for protected DASH streams.
The FAMIUM.browser which supports these standards is able to stream Microsoft® PlayReady® DRM-protected videos. The demonstration also visualizes the process of key exchange and decryption between browser, CDM and CDMI. The CDMI is an open interface for accessing a platform DRM Content Decryption Module (CDM) and is not specific to PlayReady®, Microsoft’s DRM. It can be used by a user-agent to expose CDM functionality as specified by the W3C HTML Encrypted Media Extensions without licensing DRM technology.
