iStreamPlanet, the over-the-top video services company acquired by Turner Broadcasting, said it launched a new Atlas Digital Rights Management cloud service.

Atlas allows iStreamPlanet customers to deliver media to millions of users on multiple devices and provides content encoding and security.

“We listened carefully to our customers to ensure we prioritized the right features for their business needs, and we’re excited to bring more capabilities to the iStreamPlanet product portfolio with the launch of Atlas DRM,” said Tim Davis, VP of product management at iStreamPlanet.

Turner will be Atlas’ first client.
