Widevine Expands Win With LG Electronics

Seattle-based Widevine, a provider of digital rights management (DRM) software, has expanded a win with LG Electronics, the firm said today. Widevine said LG will distribute its live and on-demand, adaptive streaming, virtual DVD controls, and digital rights management products on its LG connected products. LG was already using the firm's technology on 2009 LG Blu-ray players and home theaters; the new deal extends the technology into other LG products such as connected TVs. Financial details of the expanded business relationship were not disclosed.
