High definition is the new standard definition. With cameras and other devices allowing high definition recording of videos and images, the demand for storage devices that can store this type of content is constantly on the rise.
Allowing secure storage and easy transfer of modern day high definition content, the Next Generation Secure Memory Initiative (NSM), led by Panasonic, Samsung, Sony and Toshiba (News - Alert), has announced that it has started licensing SeeQVault.
SeeQVault is a flash memory-based content security specification which allows customers to have a great deal of control over content and pass on that benefit to the end users. With SeeQVault, users can play premium high definition content on numerous devices. The best part is, this content can be played even if they do not have an Internet connection.
SeeQVault can be used in flash drives, SD cards, HDD and other media. It allows content owners to move their content securely on a number of devices by offering them a secure key-managed environment.
NSM license program offers various advantages to customers looking to create manufacturing compliant memory devices. It also offers content distribution services with the help of technology that makes the content safe and provides various types of licenses.
“SeeQVault opens new possibilities for consumers interested in storing and viewing their high definition content and other data across the range of home-bound and mobile devices, particularly those using the Android (News - Alert) and Windows operating systems,” said NSM spokesperson, Victor Matsuda. “Moreover, it creates exciting new opportunities and business models for consumer electronics, mobile device and IT industries, as well as for those who create and distribute high definition content.”
