Further reinforcing the digital content ecosystem’s roster of technology support, Motorola Mobility’s SecureMedia content protection has been approved by the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE) for streaming UltraViolet content. Now, service providers using SecureMedia can offer subscribers ready access to their UltraViolet digital entertainment collections anytime, anywhere and on any device.

SecureMedia is extending the purchasing, collecting and sharing content in the cloud experience to consumers’ favourite connected devices by giving service providers a way to encrypt and process UltraViolet content in compliance with DECE’s specifications for streaming content protection.

“More than ever, consumers want access to all their content—from MVPD services to their UltraViolet libraries—on all their devices,” said John Burke, senior vice president and general manager, Converged Solutions, Motorola Mobility. “Motorola combines our deep pedigree in mobile security with a continued commitment to content protection across the multiscreen ecosystem. With support for UltraViolet streaming, SecureMedia is enabling service providers to meet consumer demand for convenient access to their UltraViolet collections, while expanding the secure distribution of studio content.”

“Motorola is a valued DECE member that is lending its DRM and security expertise to help drive the UltraViolet platform forward,” said Mark Teitell, General Manager, DECE. “Its content security solution, SecureMedia, has been approved by the consortium, allowing service providers to stream the more than 8,700 UltraViolet-enabled titles to consumers securely across a wide range of connected devices.”

DECE is a cross-industry consortium of top Hollywood studios, global device brands, major technology companies, leading retailers, and video service providers. UltraViolet is currently available in the US, UK and Canada and its adoption continues to broaden internationally, with Australia, New Zealand and Ireland scheduled for UltraViolet consumer launches in the coming months, and France and Germany anticipated later in 2013.
