LAS VEGAS, NV and SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/09/14 -- Piksel, a global provider of video monetization software and services, and Intertrust® Technologies Corporation, a pioneer of trusted computing technologies, today announced the availability of PikselGuard 4 with Marlin DRM, a leading open standard digital rights management platform. PikselGuard 4 is the latest release of Piksel's multiDRM software product that incorporates Intertrust's ExpressPlay mobile SDK for Marlin DRM protection.
"The integration of Marlin DRM in PikselGuard is a natural evolution of our multiDRM software product," said Mark Portu, Chief Product Officer at Piksel. "At Piksel we want to enable content owners to have more choice and flexibility within a single OTT solution. PikselGuard 4 within Piksel's OTT framework, now with Marlin DRM, is a simple and cost-effective solution that removes the complexities in working across multiple regions, formats and devices. The wide adoption of Marlin in national initiatives around the world and its full support for open standards such as MPEG-DASH/CENC will help make our vision a reality."
PikselGuard fits within the Piksel Palette, and is at the core of the over-the-top (OTT) implementations that Piksel has developed for several broadcasters and telecom operators around the world. With the support of Marlin DRM, PikselGuard can now deliver DRM services for Marlin-protected content on PCs, smart TVs, set-top boxes, game consoles, tablets, and mobile phones.
By adopting the ExpressPlay mobile SDK, a software development kit for mobile app development, PikselGuard is able to play Marlin DRM-protected content on iOS and Android platforms.
"We are very pleased that Piksel has selected ExpressPlay SDK on iOS and Android," said John Gildred, Vice President of Product Management at Intertrust. "ExpressPlay is the gold standard SDK for Marlin-protected media apps, and now as part of PikselGuard, it's easier than ever to get started using Marlin."
PikselGuard 4 now supports three of the most common DRM formats, including Microsoft PlayReady and Adobe Access.
We help the world's leading brands maximize their reach and return with video.
Comprised of a global team of experts we call "televisionaries," Piksel has helped to design, build, and manage online video services for major media companies like AT&T, BSkyB, Mediaset, and Sky Deutschland, as well as enterprise brands like Airbus, Barnes & Noble, and Volkswagen.
Headquartered in New York City, Piksel offices can be found throughout Europe and the Americas, serving more than 1,600 clients in over 50 countries.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

By working without the need for virtualization and its overhead, containers are seen as the perfect way to deploy apps and services across multiple clouds. Containers can handle anything from file types to operating systems and services, including microservices. What are microservices? Unlike what the name implies, microservices are not necessarily small, but are focused on specific tasks. The ability for developers to deploy multiple containers – thous...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
