Platform-Independent Video Solution Adds DRM Support for iPhone/iPod touch

BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 16, 2010 — Mobile World Congress — FluxDVD, the leading secure platform-independent video solution, now supports secure video downloads and playback on Apple iPhone and iPod touch devices. The optionally DRM-protected files can be downloaded directly on the iPhone or may be transferred from a PC without requiring iTunes. Once the content and license is stored on the iPhone, the content can be used as defined in the DRM and does not require any Internet connection.

"Supporting DRM-protected video on the iPhone/iPod touch is an extremely important step for supporting all major mobile platforms. It opens up a variety of new possibilities for our customers, such as Deutsche Telekom, in making their video services available in as many ways as possible. Although the Apple approval process took about four months, we believe, the result is definitely worth the wait," says Volkmar Breitfeld, CEO of ACE GmbH, the company behind FluxDVD.

"Adding the iPhone as a video distribution platform is one of the top requested features of our clients. We work with many creative people who often use the iPhone themselves and so this was always one of our top priorities. But that this is now possible based on our existing solution without the need to re-encode content is something I didn't think possible," says Michael Schmidt, VP Marketing at, a site offering integrated DVD download web shops for third party web sites.

Support for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch has been added through the custom "My Movies" app, which is available free of charge in the Apple app store.

FluxDVD supports Windows, regular DVD players, portable media players, navigation systems, Windows Mobile phones, Blackberry, Android, feature phones, PlayStation and iPhone/iPod touch. Solutions for Mac OS X and Android are planned to be released in the near future. Encoding and distribution tools are available at no cost from .
