Agora, a platform for real-time engagement APIs, recently announced a partnership with EZDRM, a provider of Digital Rights Management as a Service (DRMaaS).

The partnership aims to enhance the security of live broadcasting by integrating robust content protection solutions with interactive live-streaming capabilities. As the demand for engaging and interactive media experiences grows, particularly in the entertainment and media industry, protecting content from unauthorized use is increasingly critical.

Goals of the partnership

The partnership between Agora and EZDRM is designed to offer end-to-end security for real-time media streaming.


By combining EZDRM's cutting-edge DRM technology with Agora's real-time engagement platform, the two companies aim to provide a seamless and secure user experience across various applications, including sports broadcasting, betting, and real-time karaoke.

“We chose to work with EZDRM because of their innovative solutions and commitment to providing security in a way that is transparent to the overall user experience. Our partnership is important for our customers who require interactive live streaming with robust content protection,” said Tony Zhao, CEO and Co-Founder at Agora.

Technical synergy and customer focus

EZDRM's WebRTC-DRM solution complements Agora's technologies by simplifying the implementation of secure streaming content. The strategic alignment is set to benefit Agora’s customers by providing a more streamlined experience that maintains high-quality, secure broadcasting.

The partnership will also focus on developing comprehensive resources for customers, including reference implementation and documentation, to support the deployment of these integrated technologies.

“We are excited to partner with Agora and align our DRM services with their real-time engagement solutions,” said Olga Kornienko, COO and Co-Founder at EZDRM. “Together, we are empowering content creators and broadcasters to deliver interactive experiences that not only captivate audiences but also secure their revenue streams and protect their intellectual property.”

Enhancing the engagement of audiences

The collaboration between Agora and EZDRM unlocks new possibilities for content creators and broadcasters, enabling them to deliver high-quality, interactive, and secure live-streaming experiences. Attendees of the NAB show can learn more about the partnership and its offerings by visiting Agora and EZDRM at booth W2320.

The initiative not only aims to protect digital assets but also to enhance audiences' engagement through secure and uninterrupted broadcasts.
