The SCSA (Secure Content Storage Association) recently unveiled VIDITY, a secure delivery service that facilitates the delivery and storage of premium content – including 4K Ultra HD movies with high dynamic range (HDR) – across a wide range of devices.
With no requirement to log into accounts or connect to the Internet for playback, VIDITY compliant products will offer consumers a convenient way to store, copy and share their digital files. VIDITY also compliments third-party streaming entertainment platforms such as UltraViolet and others.
The SCSA was founded by a number of industry heavyweights, including 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, SanDisk Corporation and Western Digital. In addition to key support from the Rambus Cryptography Research division, as both a security partner and advisor, over 50 contributor companies have joined the SCSA since 2012.
As we’ve previously discussed on Rambus Press, access to uninterrupted and high-quality content is contingent upon a strong level of hardware-based security against unauthorized access.
“It is in the content provider and distributors’ best interest to provide consumers with the highest quality programming,” explained Rambus security marketing manager Zainab Al-Shamma. “By utilizing the hardware security built directly into the consumer’s viewing device, you are future-proofing access to premium content for years to come.”
