Program offering Intertrust's unique on-line/off-line Digital Rights
Management (DRM) Kiora content delivery platform with Filmbankmedia's
rich catalog of premium Hollywood content will be showcased at IBC 2018
(RAI 5-A55).

Intertrust,
the inventor of Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology, today
announced a program to provide both premium studio content and the
secure content distribution platform for deploying DRM-protected video
services in markets such as hotels, trains, buses, and other
environments.

Intertrust Kiora™ is a secure distribution platform that delivers
content in limited or no-bandwidth environments such as buses, cars,
trains and hotels. Kiora is offered as a ready-to-deploy content
appliance and publishing backend, and its micro-cloud architecture
enables content distribution without requiring users to incur charges
for bandwidth. Filmbankmedia was established to handle screenings
outside the traditional cinema and home on behalf of a number of studios
and distributors in the U.K. Filmbankmedia now represents many Hollywood
and leading independent studios and distributors in over 100 countries.

The benefits of the offering include:

  • Faster and cheaper. Service providers who want to offer
    offline content delivery services no longer have to negotiate
    separately with the studio and the technology provider.
  • Premium content. License premium Hollywood content that
    has been curated for your market.
  • Hardware flexibility. With the Kiora Virtual Appliance
    (KVA), service providers are not restricted to using Kiora hardware,
    and can opt to use their own hardware.
  • Managed cloud service. The Kiora Network Operating
    Center (NOC) manages both the appliances deployed in the field as well
    as content installed on the appliance.
  • Robust Security. Intertrust provides the DRM which means
    the highest level of security and robustness.

"Our new program unites the top providers on both sides of content
distribution, making it much easier for transport, hospitality and other
operators to launch content services," said Kenny Huang, MD, Intertrust
Media Solutions. "Intertrust is a perennial leader in digital rights
management technology, and Filmbankmedia's portfolio of premium film,
television, and short-form content is unparalleled."

"Deploying premium content in settings outside of the home and cinema
comes with great opportunities but with different piracy threats," said
Simon Culm, Chief Revenue Officer of Filmbankmedia. "Intertrust's Kiora
product provides world class content protection and management for both
online or offline environments for these markets."

The solution will be showcased during IBC 2018 at the Intertrust stand
in Hall 5, A55.
