The main components of Axinom DRM are:

  • Axinom DRM License Service - issues DRM Licenses to end-user devices requesting playback of video streams. It supports all major DRM technologies, including: Google Widevine, Apple FairPlay, and Microsoft PlayReady.

  • Axinom DRM Key Service - provides encryption keys (Content Keys) to packagers to encrypt media assets. For integration with 3rd party packaging/encryption software, it supports a variety of protocols for the exchange of generated keys, such as SPEKE and Widevine Common Encryption.

Axinom DRM integrates easily with a wide range of encoders/packagers and video players (both in browsers and on mobile devices).

Axinom DRM is a part of Mosaic Platform and can be used together with other Mosaic services, such as Encoding Service and Entitlement Service to cover the whole chain, from content acquisition to playback.


You can find some useful tools, such as Entitlement Message tool and DRM Video Playback tool, under Tools.


The service is billed, depending on your preference, on the number of issued DRM licenses or on the number of active users during a month.
