JoVE adopts EZDRM+Flowplayer solution to meet their security and global content delivery needs


The challenge of securing video content and protecting your business model for online streaming services has never been greater. The Flowplayer and EZDRM partnership addresses this challenge head-on and provides flexibility in implementing rigorous security mechanisms.

Our joint customer JoVE, a creator and publisher of scientific experiment videos from top laboratories worldwide, provides a good illustration of our simplified approach to solving the complex issues of securing content. It's essential that JoVE maintains the integrity of its video library and prevents unauthorised download and re-publishing.

JoVE and COVID-19

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, part of JoVE's mission has been to provide an authoritative reference source for Coronavirus material. While this is available for free, the content must be appropriately protected. Flowplayer and EZDRM provide the necessary robust framework and a flexible business approach that enables JoVE to be successful.


EZDRM is the original specialist in Digital Rights Management as a Service (DRMaaS), offering a straightforward, one-stop solution for protecting and monetizing your video content. The EZDRM solution makes it easy to support live, on-demand, downloadable, and offline video services and offers complete flexibility in business model support.


We are delighted to partner with Flowplayer and adding DRM with the help of EZDRM has future-proofed our business and allows us to focus on new content, future growth and continued innovation.

Today, JoVE subscribers include more than 1,000 universities, colleges, biotech, and pharmaceutical companies worldwide. As schools continue to transition from the classroom to online or hybrid instruction models, faculty members can utilize JoVE's over 12,000 science videos. In order to facilitate the huge amount of content to these important partners, security isn't something that can be disregarded.


In these unprecedented times, information access is crucial. Flowplayer and EZDRM support JoVE not only through technology but also in common values. We are proud and committed to enabling JoVE in reaching their audience with critical educational information on the topic of the current pandemic.
