Elliptic Technologies released its HDCP 2.1 SDK. The software suite is the first commercially available solution that complies with the recently released standard HDCP 2.1 or High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection 2.1, a key security technology used to protect premium content.
The Elliptic HDCP 2.1 SDK is a complete content protection solution for digital audio/video entertainment content in the wireless and wireline home network environment.
The solution is targeted at OEMs, network operators, service providers and Over The Top (OTT) content providers. It can be seamlessly integrated into embedded components for use in tablets, media centers, DVDs, Smart HDTVs, Set Top Boxes, Game Consoles, Streaming Controllers and other consumer electronic products.
The Elliptic HDCP 2.1 SDK supports all mandatory elements of copy protection (authentication, key exchange, content encryption, system renewability), as well as enhanced locality check features and robustness rules support.
The solution runs efficiently in limited resource environments and it can be implemented within frameworks such as ARM TrustZone, where security critical components are embedded and executed in trusted environments and non-critical components are executed by the host OS, such as Android.
HDCP is a preferred security method to meet the desire of consumers to enjoy their high definition movies, videos and entertainment media anywhere, anytime while respecting the desire of media producers to protect their investments in programming production. The specification is endorsed by Sony, Panasonic, Intel and high definition content owners Universal Pictures, Warner Bros. Entertainment and others.
