DRM-Protected, Ultra-Low Latency Video for Sportsbooks and iGaming

Video playback and real-time streaming technology provider, THEO Technologies, and EZDRM, the provider of Digital Rights Management as a Service (DRMaaS), have announced a strategic partnership which aims to provide sportsbooks and iGaming providers with secure ultra-low latency video streaming.

Both iGaming providers and sportsbooks benefit from ultra-low latency video streaming. For the iGaming sector, real-time streaming is pivotal in elevating player-dealer engagement, maximizing the number of hands that can be played. Sportsbooks leverage ultra-low latency video streaming to maximise the betting window for micro-betting experiences, ultimately boosting revenues.

Robust DRM is critical to enforce the streaming business model, and proves additionally valuable for legal and compliance teams in live dealer casinos, streamlining the onboarding process for new countries. In the case of sportsbooks, comprehensive DRM ensures adherence to contractual obligations with rights holders, particularly pertinent for large-screen streaming in venues like betting shops.

THEO’s real-time video API at scale, THEOlive, already delivers advanced security features such as geoblocking and token-based security. Now, with the seamless integration of the EZDRM multi-DRM solution into THEOlive, iGaming providers and sportsbooks can effortlessly initiate DRM-protected ultra-low latency streaming cross-platform. This integration ensures that they do not need to compromise on latency, video quality, and scalability while ensuring top-notch security measures for their content.

“Through THEOlive, we simplify real-time streaming for iGaming providers and sportsbooks, ensuring a high viewer quality of experience for audiences of any size — be it ten, hundreds, thousands, or even millions of viewers,” expressed Steven Telemans, CEO of THEO Technologies. “Our collaboration with EZDRM not only ensures content protection across platforms but also fortifies our commitment to delivering exceptional ultra-low latency video experiences worldwide.”

“The growing commercial applications for low-latency streaming services are an exciting backdrop to our technical collaboration with THEO,” stated Olga Kornienko, COO and Co-Founder of EZDRM. “Service providers need a robust, seamless approach to secure delivery to realise their commercial goals. THEOlive is a significant advance in providing a complete solution to meet the new demands of this market.”

The joint THEO-EZDRM solution will be presented at ICE London on February 6-8th, 2024, at the ExCeL London.
