How it works:

Welcome to the STR3EM Ecosystem, a turn-key multimedia system designed for Internet delivered entertainment. Made for Microsoft Windows 7, Vista, and XP, STR3EM offers an attractive platform for content providers and consumers with a combined distribution of over 1 billion compatible machines worldwide.

Following in the tradition of optical media, STR3EM transfers physical ownership and rental rights of products to consumers using KodeKeys.

Products redeemed with a KodeKey never expire and are customized with the user's Facebook ID for easy disaster recovery from a hard drive crash or system failure. KodeKeys also represents a user's access rights to a product throughout the STR3EM Ecosystemn network.

KodeKeys allows content providers to control unit inventories by generating and selling password lists to retailers, and presents the opportunity to sell wholesale similar to physical optical disc products. A KodeKey license is fully automated with signup and billing managed worldwide by Amazon Web Services.

KodeKeys can facilitate three types of retail business models:
1) Purchase-to-own
2) 1-7 day rentals (with or without Facebook authentication)
3) Memberships (with or without Facebook authentication)

Variable data printing products that are compatible with KodeKey distribution include magazines and newspapers, retail cards and hangers, and paper printing in-store kiosks.

Utilizing an application that converts a home computer into a retail entertainment machine, STR3EM allows content providers to distribute video and music products electronically in a single file. Through integration with Facebook� Connect consumers can access commercial files and other streaming locations within the Ecosystem by logging in with their Facebook username and password.

Compatible format distribution methods include:
  • Web Servers and CDN
  • Bittorrent
  • Optical Media
  • Flash Memory Media
  • Portable Hard Drives
  • Streaming Subscriptions
In addition to a patented system with applications in the motion picture and music industries, television, pay-per-view, and higher education, STR3EM utilizes a classified level of encryption suitable for government and corporations.

For sensitive and classified video, a Screener Mode provides a secure playback environment by only providing access to friends listed in the content provider's Facebook account. Upon playback, the user's name is watermarked on the video window, and only a single mouse click to the top or bottom of the video window can close it. Screener Mode disables all keyboard functions and will only operate in full-screen view.

For highly sensitive material, STR3EM offers super-strong 1,344,000-bit key certificates. With KKEYCERT Password Certificates, users are required to load a KKEYCERT before material can be accessed after entering a KodeKey Password. With each new STR3EM created, a unique certificate can be generated.
