Envivio integrates Google Widevine for Android and Chrome

Video processing technology provider Envivio has integrated its Halo network media processor with Google Widevine digital rights management using MPEG-DASH adaptive bit-rate technology and common encryption for the delivery of video services on Android and Chrome devices. 

Google Widevine DRM is supported natively on Google Chromecast and Chromebook devices as well as Android devices, allowing video playback without an prior software installation.

“As more people use more devices to watch more video, it is critical that operators are able to protect that content and also deliver it using a converged, flexible platform,” said Julien Signes, Envivio president and CEO. “We are continuously enhancing the capabilities of our Halo platform to offer the latest and most advanced functionality, including support for Widevine and MPEG-DASH common encryption.”
