DRM-protected movies soon to be available in browsers without app

Inflight entertainment to go appless: Lufthansa Systems and castLabs are working on a new technology for browser-based playing of movies.

Lufthansa Systems and castLabs are working on new technology that allows movies to be played in a browser on iOS devices

Lufthansa Systems, with its wireless BoardConnect IFE solution, and partner castLabs will soon enable browser-based playback of DRM-protected movies on iOS devices. DRM stands for Digital Rights Management and regulates the copy protection of digital movie files. This new technology means that passengers will no longer need to pre-install an app to enjoy movies and TV series on their own iOS devices while on board a flight.
