uses DASH to play content posted on "Server" according to use rights established at "Source"

The mission of the not-for-profit Digital Media Project is to provide the missing pieces required to complete the Digital Content revolution, in particular tools that enable people creating and distributing digital content to be remunerated for their work. See the Interoperable DRM Platform specification (word, pdf).

A standard that brings more innovation and access to development, giving more opportunities and satisfaction to both distributors and consumers.
