The Open Source Content Decryption Module has been developed by Fraunhofer FOKUS with the aim to be suitable and interoperable for as many systems and providers as possible. The code is now accessible for everyone on GitHub.
It is intended for OEMs, DRM providers, system integrators and browser ven-dors looking to enable playback of premium video content via EME.
The media transmission between a browser decoupled media engine and the Content Decryption Module interface specification (CDMi) can be secured via a DRM-specific authenticated interface. The CDMi itself contains most CDM logic and is a c++ wrapper for the embedded platform DRM.
This implementation offers interoperable HTML5 based protected video delivery, DRM interoperability based on Common Encryption (CENC) and MPEG-DASH support.
Dr. Stefan Arbanowski, director of Fraunhofer FOKUS‘ competence center „Future Applications and Media“ says: »We would be happy to see a broad adoption of our implementation and encourage contributions of OEMs, DRM providers, system integrators and browser vendors. A first end-to-end implementation has been done testing with a Microsoft PlayReady CDMi implementation. This CDMi allows open source browser vendors to support DRM without licensing it.«
OCDM is built with a modular concept in mind to be easily extendible and flexible. The open source code already provides support for the CDMi, which essentially requires the CDM to use the operating system's native Remote Procedure Call (RPC) mechanisms to forward EME calls.
»We are pleased with Fraunhofer FOKUS’ decision to publish an open source version of their HTML5 Content Decryption Module (CDM). This software will enable HTML5 browsers to deliver on the promise of internet enabled media, and will greatly expand the reach and footprint of premium content for content owners, service providers and OEMs«, says Chris Santini, Director of Strategy and Business Planning at Microsoft.
OCDM supports the Linux based Browsers and Platforms FAMIUM, Chromium, Opera, QtWebengine. Detailed information on how to build and run OCDM can be found on GitHub. The end-to-end prototype implementation for early technology evaluation and interoperability testing FAMIUM already integrates OCDM and a CDMi Implementation supporting Microsoft PlayReady.
The Open Source Content Decryption Module and its implementation will be shown at IBC 2014. Be invited to Fraunhofer FOKUS’ booth in hall 8.B80 and Microsoft’s booth in hall 13.MS1/2. IBC is taking place in Amsterdam on Sep-tember 12-16.

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.
Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....
The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.
Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...
Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.
That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.
During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.
Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
