[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - Robosoft Technologies, a renowned developer of Mac, iPhone and iPad games and a leader in secure digital distribution of Mac video games, is proud to announce its strategic relationship with Encore, Inc. - the leading retail publisher for a complete range of personal productivity, utility, education and game titles. Encore has selected Robosoft's DRMConnect, a comprehensive Digital Rights Management solution, to protect and manage the licensing of its Mac products and game titles for digital and retail distribution.
"Encore is a Top Ten interactive software publisher and a leading player in the retail distribution, personal productivity, utility, education and game titles for both Mac and PC. Encore was looking for an easy-to-use DRM system for Mac applications that can be integrated with their websites as well as reporting tools for trial conversions, customizable user interface, and compatibility with current operating systems. We were pleased to offer DRMConnect, a secure, flexible yet economical Mac Digital Rights Management solution and were delighted to fulfill their Mac DRM needs" said Rohith Bhat, MD & CEO of Robosoft.
"We looked at a number of DRM technologies. There were many options available for the PC platform, but we had difficulty finding the right solution for our Mac products. DRMConnect offered us the best security protection, with helpful built-in tracking and conversion mechanisms, at a reasonable price," said Cal Morrell, Encore's president.
Mac unit sales have averaged a worldwide growth rate of 20% year-over-year since 2008 and are maintaining a rapid growth with the latest Q3 - 2010 results announced by Apple. Indie developers and large publishing houses are now porting their titles from other platforms onto the Mac platform to get a share of the Mac Software/Game business.
DRMConnect is a robust DRM solution for distributing Mac games, software, and casual and AAA titles on the Mac platform. DRMConnect offers flexible methods for wrapping the Mac software products and games based on various factors like the number of minutes playable, number of days or launches, etc. DRMConnect also offers the flexibility to game publishers and distributors to apply one single DRM solution for digital sales as well as traditional retail channels.
