2012 NAB Show


LAS VEGAS--HD video on Android smartphones and tablets poses a major challenge for Hollywood studios. While offering a compelling viewing experience, these devices have inherent security vulnerabilities, placing premium content at risk. In order to meet these challenges DRM and link protection must be secured at the hardware level and enhanced with secure content path and output control.

Discretix' hardware-assisted content protection solutions protect sensitive DRM assets by fully integrating with the ARM® TrustZone® ecosystem, across all leading platforms, utilizing a variety of Trusted Execution Environments (TEE) and Secure OSs.

Discretix' all-inclusive content protection offerings address the security vulnerabilities of Android devices by integrating the following components:

*DRM - Discretix Multi-Scheme DRM Client (supporting widely used DRM schemes such as Microsoft® PlayReady®)
*HDCP and DTCP-IP - Protecting the link between trusted devices
*Secure Content Path - Ensuring that the main OS cannot access data-in-motion between the DRM client and the screen
*Output Control - Ensuring that HD content is only shared between approved devices

Discretix' content protection solutions are in mass production across multiple platforms at Tier 1 Android devices vendors, enabling them to bring premium video services to market under their own name brands. The Discretix hardware-assisted content protection solution is available for platforms from all the leading mobile application processor vendors.
