Using KeyOS, Class On Demand will better preserve the value of their offering which covers a broad spectrum of content, including: video capture and editing, computer animation, federally mandated training, customized corporate training, IT, and vocational education.
Class on Demand came to BuyDRM seeking a more secure streaming media solution which enabled encrypted streaming and downloads that are compatible with the Intel-based Mac and PC markets. With a diverse global audience, it was important that Class On Demand explore additional new methods to expand their audience base and the manner in which their users could view their content. Ultimately, Class On Demand chose the KeyOS Platform due to the scalability of the encryption suite, flexibility of the licensing API and BuyDRM's ability to rapidly deploy this new offering in a cost effective manner.
