Elliptic Technologies has launched the tVault DRM platform for Microsoft PlayReady, to secure premium content on connected devices. And, Elliptic has also fully integrated the tVault DRM solution on the NVIDIA Tegra 4i mobile processor.

This release enables Elliptic to support and deliver PlayReady protected over-the-top (OTT) and video-on-demand (VOD) streaming services to a wide range of devices including Android phones, tablets and set-top boxes, which addresses the security needs of major film studios worldwide and includes a complete content protection solution for resource limited Trusted Execution Environments (TEE).

"Hollywood studios have been demanding hardware enforced security for protecting their content on multiple screens and connected devices," said Ogi Brkic, vice president of marketing and business development at Elliptic Technologies. "Adding Microsoft PlayReady DRM to our extensive product portfolio gives our customers even more possibilities to allow consumers to enjoy premium video content anywhere, anytime."

NVIDIA Tegra 4i is an integrated LTE mobile processor, with 60 custom GPU cores, a quad-core CPU based on ARM's Cortex-A9 r4 CPU, plus a fifth battery saver core, and an NVIDIA i500 LTE modem optimised for integration.

"The integration of tVault on our high performance Tegra 4i platform ensures customers can rapidly embed a solution to meet the increasing need for piracy prevention," said Glenn Schuster, senior director of Tegra Platform Partners at NVIDIA.

In addition to Microsoft PlayReady, Elliptic's tVault supports the DTCP-IP and HDCP 2.2 link protection security technologies.
