Lufthansa Industry Solutions Selects BuyDRM for Secure Mobile Content Delivery to Germany’s Intercity Bus Passengers

KeyOS Device DRM™ Technology Provides Studio-Approved DRM for Onboard iOS and Android Devices

NORDERSTEDT, Germany & AUSTIN, TexasSeptember 8th — BuyDRM™, a pioneer in Digital Rights Management (“DRM”) and Content Security Services, announced today that the company has been selected by Lufthansa Industry Solutions to deliver secure video playback via Lufthansa’s mobile passenger portal, Velimo Road’n’Rail, a turnkey video solution with a DRM compliant content supply chain approved by the Hollywood Studios

Lufthansa Systems has been using BuyDRM technology for years on airline fleets, including Lufthansa, Virgin Australia, El Al, and Aircalin, and now, the KeyOS™ Device DRM™ License Solution also provides content access protection for Lufthansa Industry Solutions’ mobile infotainment options for Germany’s Postbus passengers. The KeyOS Device DRM agents permit passengers to securely stream content to their personal smartphones and tablets while complying with the demanding security requirements of content providers.

The BuyDRM KeyOS Device DRM Solution was selected for its flexibility in deployment, robust security and responsive support team. As a licensee of content from the major studios, Lufthansa has to ensure that the highest levels of security are deployed in a manner that’s completely transparent to the consumer. The KeyOS Device DRM solution is invisible to the consumer and provides the flexibility Lufthansa requires, while ensuring impervious security using today’s most popular media formats. From the convenience of their own devices, bus passengers can now securely access the Internet, check emails, go online shopping, watch their favorite movies or television shows, read newspapers and magazines, or play online games.

"The expansion of our in-flight media entertainment service to passenger devices on Germany’s intercity Postbuses requires a vendor with the experience and resources to effectively support a company of our size. We chose BuyDRM after an exhaustive review of all available solutions, and because BuyDRM is already studio-approved the decision was even easier,” said Peter Horstmann, Vice President Hospitality Solutions, Lufthansa Industry Solutions.

“We have a long history of working with the Lufthansa Group companies and their innovative IT solutions,” said Christopher Levy, CEO and Founder, BuyDRM. “We are truly honored to be partnered with Lufthansa Industry Solutions as they expand their strong position in the IT market through customized solutions built around the KeyOS Platform for the transportation industry.”
