New Adobe Server Software protects rich media content

19 March 2008

Adobe has announced the availability of its Adobe® Flash® Media Rights Management Server software, a new, scalable content protection solution that helps safeguard video content created for Adobe Flash technology against misuse.

The new server integrates into existing and emerging media delivery workflows, including Adobe Media Player and video applications that run on Adobe AIRTM software.

Video content delivered using Adobe's Flash technology is accessed by millions of users world-wide.

"At Sony Pictures Entertainment, we are looking for innovative new ways to distribute our movies and TV shows so consumers can view them when and where they want," said Richard Berger, SVP of New Media & Technology for Sony Pictures Entertainment.

"Safeguarding digital media assets from unauthorised usage is a key component of our online strategy. We are pleased to see Adobe launch the Flash Media Rights Management Server and look forward to exploring its ability to enable new and secure distribution models with our partners."

Content owners can use Adobe Flash Media Rights Management Server to encrypt FLV and F4V audio and video files that are downloaded and played locally and sets policies for their access.

Precise usage control allows service providers to specify a range of parameters for user access and media expiration, while dynamic rights management lets them change usage rights even after a file has been distributed. The protection capabilities in Adobe Media Player also help ensure content is not reused or remixed without consent from the media publisher.

Adobe Flash Media Rights Management Server is now available for Windows® Server 2003 and Red Hat® Linux.
