Alticast has extended the security capabilities of the AltiProtect product to 4K UHD content running on Windows platforms.

A4k contenidolticast has integrated Intel Software Guard Extensions (Intel SGX) technology into the AltiProtect Multi-DRM product to eliminate exposure to untrusted areas, enable secure delivery of 4K UHD online video content from servers to client devices and prevent copying of content from GPU memory.

“As content and service providers seek to deliver service to as many device families as possible, they face the challenge of maximising content protection within specific platforms,” said Jae Park, vice president of business development for Alticast.  “By combining the capabilities of Intel SGX and AltiProtect, we are able to offer the strongest security possible to Windows systems.”

AltiProtect uses industry standards to ensure reliable content protection for broadcast and video-on-demand (VOD), and can easily adapt to unique network infrastructures.

“The need to ensure secure delivery is taking on greater importance as operators offer higher value 4K UHD content,” said Rick Echevarria, vice president, Intel Software and Services Group, and GM, Intel Platforms Security Division. “Our work with AltiProtect strengthens the industry’s ability to safeguard 4K UHD content in an over-the-top environment.”
