Giraffic supports copyright protection and DRM.
Giraffic is configured to support customer’s existing DRM and integrates with customer’s existing licensing and encryption schemes, such as Microsoft PlayReady or Widevine.
Only requests authorized and decrypted on the customer’s video player by the customer’s DRM system will be redirected to the Giraffic agent in the first place.
Transmissions and coded data are encrypted, and file based DRM is made possible due to the fact that the system does not intervene in the content itself. Any DRM-encoded content will be distributed to the network and playable under the same restrictions as it would via any other distribution system.
Additionally, data which is encoded, encrypted and seeded pro-actively by the Giraffic distribution system is always delivered in fragments so that an end-user never holds a full copy of a file, unless that particular end user had specific access rights to that particular file/content.
Only the content owner has access to the full encrypted files, and is the only one able to upload new content into the network. End-users cannot upload any content into the Giraffic network, unless the content distributor grants them permission to do so.
