All you need to know about Widevine CAS
Content protection is like a safe where you keep your most valuable assets, but up until now that was an expensive safe to have. Well, not anymore.
WeTek has long been taking full advantage of the Android TV ecosystem, providing businesses with the best video distribution solutions on the market. One important feature that isn’t mentioned enough is the Widevine CAS (conditional access), one that provides operators with the opportunity to protect their content and fearlessly move towards new business models.
Widevine was already known as a specialist in online video content protection, way before its purchase by Google in 2010, but now it is completely integrated with any Android TV solution. With an ever-increasing demand for 4K streaming content, we can now offer creators the assurance that their content is truly protected, and in that way generate new revenue streams.
Widevine CAS was specially designed to help next-generation video operators with a cost-free option within the pay-TV infrastructure, making it easier to leverage standards-based solutions for content protection. So, what exactly are the principal features and benefits?
- Widevine CAS works as a hybrid solution, building on top of existing OTT security stack, providing the best of both worlds, CAS and DRM.
- Widevine CAS is scalable and flexible. Only available for platforms using Android TV.
- Our devices integrate Widevine CAS, which uses existing L1 security architecture and also allows for faster deployment and streamlined certification. They also gain the ability to leverage existing OEM and SOC integrations, but most of all, work fully with Android TV.
- Save money on your project, having no fees for the client or server products, using industry-standard business policies for entitlements. It also uses streamlined behavior across CAS and DRM.
WeTek is Certified Widevine Implementation Partner (CWIP), so you can expect our WeCast and WeTV solutions already Widevine friendly and ready. This means we were rendered highly qualified on the ability to confidently and successfully install and Integrate Widevine DRM/CAS for our partners. In short, Widevine CAS is free, certified and credited by the industry, not to mention it is tailored made for Android TV.
