Concurrent Expands eFactor Content Protection with AuthenTec
ATLANTA, Sept. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Concurrent (NASDAQ: CCUR), a global leader in video solutions and media data intelligence announced it has teamed with AuthenTec to enable service and content providers to protect their high value content from piracy when consumers view it using Android and Apple iOS tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices. The collaboration combines AuthenTec’s digital rights management (DRM) technology with Concurrent’s eFactor protection solution in order to provide support for Microsoft’s market-leading PlayReady DRM.
“Concurrent’s integration with AuthenTec simplifies the process for service providers, content providers and CDNs to deliver premium content to a wider range of popular connected devices,” said Jim Denenny, Concurrent’s vice president of strategic marketing for online media solutions. “eFactor software is designed to work inside of an operator’s IP CDN to dynamically apply DRM protection to content at the time video streams are being generated. We teamed with AuthenTec because of their support for PlayReady DRM, our ability to easily integrate the solution with eFactor, and the broad adoption of their client technology.”
“Because our combined DRM solution is robust and highly customizable with capabilities for ad-insertion and other advanced schemes, it supports a variety of business models for secure mobile content delivery,” said Dr. Simon Blake-Wilson, vice president of AuthenTec Embedded Security Solutions. “We are pleased to team with Concurrent to help them further their vision of providing anytime, anywhere secure access to high value content.”
eFactor, which features on-the-fly content repackaging and policy management, in addition to content protection, streamlines the complex task of delivering multi-format live and on-demand video to a wide variety of connected devices. Integrating with AuthenTec’s technology further expands eFactor’s portfolio of supported DRM content protection solutions.
Concurrent will demonstrate the AuthenTec integration at its booth (#4.A71), Sept. 7-11, 2012 at the IBC 2012 conference in Amsterdam.
