Pricing

One Simple Plan: $99/month Plus DRM-License Fees

Our unique pricing model consists of a base fee of $99 per month, coupled with additional costs for DRM-license fees. This approach allows you to pay only for what you use, ensuring that your costs are always aligned with your actual consumption of DRM licenses. This means you only pay for the licenses you use, in addition to the monthly base fee.

We employ a tiered pricing strategy for DRM licenses to provide you with the most cost-efficient solution possible. The cost per license decreases as your volume of licenses increases, as detailed below:

Licenses/MonthCost per license
Up to 20,000:$0.005
20,001 to 100,000:$0.004 per license
100,001 to 500,000:$0.003 per license
Over 500,000:Please contact us for custom pricing

This usage-based model allows for significant flexibility and control over your costs, making it easier to budget and plan for your DRM needs.

Note

Enterprise DRM ensures that videos are encrypted during the transcoding process and stored securely in the storage.

What Counts As a DRM-License?

A DRM license is issued each time a user initiates playback of a video that requires a DRM (Digital Rights Management) license for decryption. Our system is designed to count licenses in a manner that ensures fairness and cost-effectiveness:

  • We count one DRM license for each unique VoD (Video on Demand) content, per device.
  • Each unique VoD (Video on Demand) content playback on a device counts as one DRM license.
  • SD videos or audio streams do not incur DRM license fees.

Examples:

  • Multiple Browser Playback: If a user plays back a video in HD and then restarts the VoD session in a different browser, it counts as 2 DRM licenses.
  • Playlist Viewing: Watching a playlist with 5 HD VoD videos results in 5 DRM licenses, one for each video.
  • Resolution Upgrade: A video played in UHD typically incurs 2 DRM license requests if the player initially starts in SD or HD before switching to UHD.
  • SD Resolution: Watching a video in SD resolution does not count towards DRM license usage.

Monthly Cost Calculation Example

To illustrate, if 10,000 users each watch 15 HD videos in a month, this results in 150,000 DRM licenses. Applying the tiered pricing model, the cost for 150,000 licenses amounts to $669.

Example:

(20.000 x 0.005) + (80.000 x 0.004) + (50.000 x 0.003) = 100 + 320 + 150 = $570 + $99 base fee = $669
