Open Source Content Decryption Module now accessible

10.09.2014

Presentation: IBC 2014 in Amsterdam, September 12th – 16th
Fraunhofer FOKUS’ booth in hall 8.B80 and Microsoft’s booth in hall
13.MS1/2 

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.

Im Focus: Future electronic components to be printed like newspapers

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.

The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
