Great news for the streaming world – Adobe Media Server 5.0 is finally available for all platforms (Linux + Windows), and in all editions.

It includes Adobe Access Protected Streaming not only for HTTP Dynamic Streaming (PHDS), but also for HTTP Live Streaming (PHLS) – it means you can deploy DRM protected content on iOS now with or without Adobe Access license server. It is a robust enhancement over Apple’s standard encrypted HLS streaming.

Adobe’s Kevin Towes has a more in-depth official blog post explaining the editions, and highlighting the SeaTV iOS DRM demo application.
