The Next Generation Secure Memory Initiative (NSM), led by Panasonic, Samsung, Sony and Toshiba, has recently started licensing SeeQVault – a new, flash memory-based content security specification that allows secure storage and movement of files ranging from high definition entertainment content to sensitive data and other confidential material. The specification is available to the broad range of companies that comprise the consumer electronics, entertainment and IT ecosystems. NSM developed SeeQVault to enable the creation of software and hardware products that allow manufacturers, content service providers and others to offer consumers new capability in content flexibility, security and portability.
SeeQVault enabled memory and devices will allow the storage and playback of premium high definition content across multiple devices with or without internet connectivity. With SeeQVault enabled flash drives, SD cards, HDD and other media, consumers will be able to move high definition content across their various devices in a secure key-managed environment that provides dynamic flexibility for content consumption while offering superior intellectual property protection.
“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 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.”
