Business Wire India The number of video platforms is rising continuously since the last 3 years. E-learning businesses, schools, colleges, and movie/web-series platforms all are relying on online distribution and monetization of videos.

While doing a course on Coursera on encryption, Vibhav thought of combining encryption with cloud rendered video playback.”
