Nagra said its digital rights management platform, MediaAccess Persistent Rights Management, has been approved by the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE), the consortium behind UltraViolet, a digital locker format for movies and TV shows backed by several major studios as well as CableLabs, Cox Communications, Comcast and Time Warner Cable.
DECE approval means Nagra's MediaAccess PRM platform is approved to protect DECE/UltraViolet streaming of premium standard-def and HD content to a wide range of "open" devices, a follow on to approval for streaming to closed devices.
MediaAccess PRM enables a secure PVR/DVR recording and playback. It protects the over-the-top delivery of both linear and VoD content. It supports sharing content across multiple devices, within authorized domains. It can also serve as a bridge to DTCP-IP devices to securely extend the experience outside of the service provider's own ecosystem. All these services are fully controlled by the service providers through a flexible set of usage rules. MediaAccess PRM provides full control and independence to service providers in the management of devices and their entitlements.
