HEVC support for Widevine and PlayReady DRM in Nimble Streamer

Nimble Streamer DRM provides wide range of DRM encryption technologies and key management platforms.

Recently we've added support for H.265/HEVC codec for these encryption technologies:


They work for all major scenarios:

So you can deliver your un-protected stream into Nimble Streamer, convert it into MPEG-DASH or HLS fMP4, record into DVR if needed, encrypt and then deliver to your viewers for further playback. And if you have any VOD files, you can define transmuxing rules and then set up DRM so they could be played via DRM-powered players.

On the viewers' side, Larix Player for Android allows running MPEG-DASH streams via embedded ExoPlayer in all streaming modes and decode Widevine and PlayReady streams. You can download it on Google Play and visit Player website to learn more.

Feel free to try Nimble Streamer DRM in action and let us know of any questions.
