InterTrust Technologies Corp. Announces Its FlyingMedia System, Acquisition of Infinite Ink


InterTrust Technologies Corp., the Meta-- Trust Utility, has announced the availability of the FlyingMedia publishing digital rights management (DRM) system. According to the company, FlyingMedia provides e-publishers with a sophisticated and highly flexible commerce system that is consumed friendly, convenient, and easy to use. FlyingMedia, based on InterTrust's DRM platform, consists of packager and viewer software for published materials, and is supported by the MetaTrust Utility and clearinghouse services. FlyingMedia was expected to ship during the first quarter of this year and be available through MetaTrust Partners.

FlyingMedia lets publishers create business rules, associate them with published text, and package both the content and the rules in secure containers using InterTrust's DigiBox container technology. Information in the InterTrust system is encrypted and stored in a format called a DigiBox container. Once in a DigiBox container, only InterTrust's InterRights Point software or Rights/PD software can access the information. Further, the information remains secure even after user access. With InterTrust technology, content is persistently protected and managed, regardless of its location.

A detailed competitive analysis of FlyingMedia to Adobe Web Buy/PDF Merchant and Xerox ContentGuard is available at htt$://www.intertrust.com/products/fly ingmedia.

InterTrust also announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire Infinite Ink, a pioneering Portland, Oregon, provider of technology for multi-platform e-publishing. The integration of Infinite Ink's technology into InterTrust's DRM platform will provide e-publishers and resellers with a powerful range of platform support, document compression, advanced document rendering, and searching capabilities. InterTrust believes this combination of the leading distributed DRM and Infinite Ink's leading e-technology for e-- books will uniquely support digital content providers with easily used tools enabling DRM-powered digital products and business models. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

InterTrust initially plans to deliver MetaTrust Certified reusable e-publishing components that are based on Infinite Ink tools. These tools will operate on PCs, with follow-on support for set-tops, portables, other small platform devices, and Macintosh. Infinite Ink's publishing tools are designed to take a source document and package the contents for rendering in the Infinite Ink IPD format. The packaging process automatically translates HTML, Open eBook format, and other formatted content into a compressed, rights-managed multimedia file. With Infinite Ink technology, document size is greatly reduced for significantly faster downloads and text searches, as well as smaller storage space requirements. In addition, a document and any portion of a document can have flexible rules associated to control viewing, printing, copying, and redistributing in accordance with content provider business models.

InterTrust intends to provide the Infinite Press Reader technology as a plug-in component for the InterTrust FlyingMedia DRM content publishing system. Publishers, resellers, and e-publishing companies will have a range of tools enabling creation of content in their desired or existing formats (PDF, HTML, Quark, MS Office) and publish them using an integrated array of technologies. …
