WDLabs recently introduced a software platform designed to accelerate the creation and deployment of VIDITY™ enabled products and services. Essentially, VIDITY allows consumers to download, store and play 4K Ultra HD movies with high dynamic range (HDR) across a plethora of devices.
According to WDLabs, the VIDITY Software Platform is built around open standards and will bring VIDITY protocols, security and standards-based manageability into a single integrated solution optimized for next-gen premium 4K UHD devices such as TVs, optical media players and digital media players.
Indeed, the VIDITY Software Platform is supported and validated by an expanding hardware, software and certification ecosystem that will provide common building blocks for next generation video devices and Over-The-Top (OTT) services.
It should be noted that the new WDLabs software utilizes VIDITY’s Security Platform from the Rambus Cryptography Research division – which includes a library of secure functions integrated with the SOC trusted execution environment.
“We are pleased Rambus Cryptography Research was selected by SCSA as a valued security partner and advisor to protect high-quality 4K Ultra HD with HDR, HD and SD content with our VIDITY Security Platform,” said Paul Kocher, president and chief scientist, Rambus Cryptography Research Division. “The Cryptography Research VIDITY Security Platform works in conjunction with the VIDITY software platform from WDLabs to enable rapid development, certification and time-to-market of VIDITY Specification 2.0 products.”
As we’ve previously discussed on Rambus Press, the Rambus Cryptography Research Division is responsible for running and managing the SCSA’s VIDITY Key Issuance Center. The service, part of the Cryptography Research Trust Services offering, manages cryptographic keys used by SCSA-enabled devices and services to secure high-quality 4K Ultra HD content. In operating the Key Issuance Center, Cryptography Research delivers encrypted keys to storage device makers, player manufacturers and content issuers involved with the SCSA.
