September 12, 2011 -- To address the need for easy-to-use, cross-device content-sharing solutions for new smartphones, tablets, connected TVs, hybrid set-top boxes and game consoles, Discretix Technologies, Ltd. and AwoX have partnered to offer a joint DTCP-IP solution. Based on the Discretix hardware-assisted DRM client in combination with AwoX's mediaCTRL mobile edition, the solution is in full compliance with the security requirement of content owners.
The DTCP-IP's link protection technology protects content in-motion between home entertainment devices against unauthorized access, while ensuring that content can be viewed and copied on authorized devices. DTCP enables content to be transmitted, in an encrypted form, only to those home network devices that have authenticated compliance with DTCP. The stringent security requirements set by major studios and content providers coupled with the performance essential for HD video mandate the use of hardware-assisted DRM solutions.
The Discretix hardware-assisted DRM client reinforces the DTCP solution by protecting permanent key material, sensitive data and premium content. A key component of the Discretix offering is its field-proven Multi-Scheme DRM Client which includes all of the essential elements necessary for a robust implementation on open operating systems such as Android, MeeGo and Linux. The client is available on all of the leading mobile platforms in the market today.
