The Intel Atom Processor CE4100 combines leading-edge CE features for support of high-definition video, home-theatre quality audio and advanced 3-D graphics, with the performance, flexibility and compatibility of hardware and software based on Intel architecture. Because a growing number of new digital TVs, Blu-ray Disc players and advanced set-top boxes are incorporating the CE4100 media processor to enable high-quality video service delivery, Verimatrix has verified that its content security and revenue protection techniques can be rigorously hardened using a range of security capabilities within the Intel CE4100.
"Although the technology now exists to deliver high quality digital video to nearly every type of device, securing revenue streams for this content is key to gaining support from content owners and operators," said Keith Wehmeyer, Intel's general manager, IPTV Segment, Digital Home Group. "We are pleased the advanced security features of the Intel Atom Processor CE4100 have been verified by Verimatrix to support its ViewRight video security technologies."
Verimatrix's ViewRight client technology enables a cardless video security solution based on standards-based encryption, and Public Key Infrastructure to complement the head-end components of the Verimatrix Video Content Authority ( VCAS™) solution. Verimatrix's device security approach takes full advantage of secure processing and tamper resistant features within newer generations of advanced VLSI devices.
