Piksel Launches PikselGuard 4 With Marlin DRM by Integrating Intertrust's ExpressPlay Mobile SDK

PikselGuard Multi-DRM Software Suite Takes on Challenges of MPEG-DASH/CENC Adoption for Multiple Devices Armed With ExpressPlay

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.

As ridesharing competitors and enhanced services increase, notable changes are occurring in the transportation model. Despite the cost-effective means and flexibility of ridesharing, both drivers and users will need to be aware of the connected environment and how it will impact the ridesharing experience. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Timothy Evavold, Executive Director Automotive at Covisint, discussed key challenges and solutions to powering a ride sharing and/or multimodal model in the age ...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dr. Robert Cohen, an economist and senior fellow at the Economic Strategy Institute, presented the findings of a series of six detailed case studies of how large corporations are implementing IoT. The session explored how IoT has improved their economic performance, had major impacts on business models and resulted in impressive ROIs. The companies covered span manufacturing and services firms. He also explored servicification, how manufacturing firms shift from se...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
