DRM prevents users from downloading, copying, redistributing, or converting content to ensure streams only play back on trusted devices with a valid session.

All content ingested into our platform is protected with FairPlay, WideVine, and PlayReady, the same Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology used by Disney+, iTunes, and Netflix.

Content creators upload their film files directly into our video partner's secure cloud storage, where it's transcoded and encrypted with DRM. The source file is then deleted immediately after.

Availability windows, geographic restrictions, and number of streams can all be restricted.

Geographic restrictions are verified using a combination of IP address location, on-device location services, and proxy detection.


Only authorized ticket holders or subscribers are granted access to view the content, and all activity is logged.

How does the encoding process work?

An invite is emailed from our system to the content provider. The content provider uploads the movie file directly into our video partner's secure cloud storage, where it's transcoded and encrypted with DRM. The source file is then deleted immediately after.

What about watermarking?

Every film uploaded and streamed via Eventive is secured with a Nagra NexGuard invisible forensic watermark at no additional cost. This forensic watermark identifies each individual user and session, meaning any unauthorized use can be traced right back to the source.

Visible overlay watermarking is also available by request at no additional cost. Session specific and user specific burn-in watermarking are also available. Send us a message to request these watermark variants.
