Midstream Teams with Widevine

With piracy remaining a serious threat, companies are proceeding very cautiously with streaming any sensitive information. If two Northwest companies have their way, however, companies won't be worried much longer.

Bellevue-based Midstream Technologies has teamed up with Seattle-based Widevine technologies embedding the Widevine Cypher into Midstream's multi-gigabit streaming appliance.

"Content piracy on the Internet is a big concern for content owners," said Richard Oesterreicher, Chief Technology Officer, MidStream Technologies. "We pride ourselves on proactively implementing new technologies that will revolutionize the economics and scalability of secure and reliable delivery of streaming media. Certainly, incorporating the powerful security solutions provided by Widevine Technologies into our product fits this philosophy"

According to Brian Baker, President and Founder of Widevine Technologies, the deal comes at a very opportune time.

"Higher quality, faster streaming with a powerful security solution protecting valuable and proprietary content that's what video and music entertainment companies, large corporations, governments around the world and other entities are demanding from the Internet and from streaming media," said Baker.

The relationship between the two companies is non-exclusive.
