How to Deploy Widevine DRM

Everything you need to begin your device integration or content encryption process is available here. Depending on your needs, please review the information below to help determine your next steps. If you have any questions, please Contact Us.

Device Manufacturers and Chipset Vendors:

Widevine has an established process to help streamline the integration of new devices and chipsets. A high-level overview of the steps are as follows:

  • Completion of legal agreements
  • Delivery of a Widevine documentation package
  • Technical discussion to understand the device type, chipset, and review the Widevine robustness rules
  • Exchange of libraries, SDKs, and integration documentation
  • Keybox request and fulfillment (as needed)
  • Client integration testing

If you are interested in a new device or chipset integration, please Contact Us.

Content Owners/Providers:

Content owners and providers can join the Certified Widevine Implementation Partner (CWIP) program to become CWIP certified. The program offers comprehensive training and certification for VOD packaging, License Server, Android and iOS application development.

CWIP is an optional training program designed to educate third parties on the use of Widevine products. Partners who successfully complete the program will be positioned to significantly expedite their deployment to the market.

For content owners and providers interested in independently protecting their digital media, the Common Encryption standard (ISO/IEC 23001-7) and Encrypted Media Extensions framework are both available as open specifications. Please refer to their respective documentation for implementation design guidelines.
