Widevine Technologies, a provider of multiformat and multiplatform DRM, has announced that it is actively securing the distribution of flash-based content from Warner Bros and Sony Pictures Television for Gaia Online.
Gaia Online streams flash-based titles to members using Windows PCs or Mac computers. Widevine secures the content during streaming and after decryption to further prevent against piracy tools such as screen scrapers and stream recorders.
Brian Baker, CEO of Widevine Technologies, said: Widevine’s exclusive ability to provide secure, cross-platform Flash delivery to a wide range of consumer platforms is critical. Gaia Online has met the security requirements of the major studios to deliver a highly sought user experience for their community.
Craig Sherman, CEO of Gaia, said: The Gaia Cinemas enables millions of teens to come together to share their experiences, express their individuality and now watch great movies or episodic television. We wanted to offer and make premium content available to all our members. Widevine is helping us to achieve our entertainment and business goals with its content protection solution for Flash and enabling us to expand to other formats, if needed.
