Protection for videos and live streams

Every now and then you may want to protect your content and you can do so with e.g. video packaging, user management and registrations, or e.g. using IP blocking to define who watches your videos. We also have support for on-premise video distribution and recordings, e.g. for hospitals. Encrypting videos with tokens or even DRM (digital rights management) is also possible.

You retain the content rights of the videos

Remember that you always retain the rights to the videos when you use the Icareus Suite video cloud, unlike when you use e.g. YouTube or Facebook.

Quality and reliability

We have the world's leading cloud platform, software and content distribution network providers as partners. Our quality has been recognized as excellent by, among others, many international TV channels and operators; and millions of end users in the process.
