Marlin DRM boost for UHD content protection

Open standard Digital Rights Management (DRM) standard Marlin DRM has unveiled a compliance and robustness (C&R) framework for enhanced content protection (ECP) for ultra-HD content. This solution conforms with requirements set by the content industry.

The new C&R rules for ECP define security and content protection requirements for Marlin-based products that distribute UHD and early-release window audiovisual content. The rules apply to chipset manufacturers (and integrators of content protection logic into hardware-based trusted execution environments), Smart TVs, set-top box manufacturers that integrate high security chipsets, and service providers. Marlin DRM’s self-certification process has been expanded to accommodate services, device manufacturers, and chipset manufacturers to comply with these new C&R rules around ECP.

“Marlin DRM has always led the way in video protection and management,” said Hide Hosokawa, Co-President of the Marlin Trust Management Organization (MTMO). “These new C&R rules allow adopters of the world’s leading open standard for DRM to deploy and monetise the highest quality content in compliance with Hollywood’s most exacting security requirements.”
