Adobe Access mode offers a complete DRM solution. It supports
all the Adobe Access 3.0 features, along with remote key serving
for HLS. Local key serving mode also works with Adobe Access 2.0
or higher license servers. The remote key serving mode works only
with an Adobe Access 4.0 compliant server.
Adobe Access SDK is a Digital Rights Management (DRM) platform
that makes it possible to protect and securely deliver video and
audio content for playback on consumer devices such as personal
computers. Adobe Access is a flexible platform that enables content
owners to protect their content and maintain control over distribution.
Content owners can protect and manage their rights by creating licenses
for each digital media file, ensuring that a wide variety of the highest-quality
content is made available to consumers.
Adobe Access supports a wide range of business models, including
video on demand, rental, and electronic sell-through. You can distribute
content protected with Adobe Access by streaming through Adobe Media
Server software, offering progressive download via HTTP using Adobe's
HTTP Dynamic Streaming technology, or permitting downloads to a
content library for local playback at the consumer's convenience.
To enable DRM support for HTTP Live Streaming, use Adobe Access
iOS library. The policy files generated for Adobe Access 2.0 and
Adobe Access 3.0 will also work in local key serving mode.
AMS supports different content encryption keys for content at
the different levels (server, application, stream, and event). The
keys are generated according to the location of the content and
the location of the Common Key.
