Remember the Full HD 3D glasses initiative that was formed by Panasonic, Samsung, Sony and X6D? Well it looks like those companies (minus X6D) are back again, this time with Sandisk and Toshiba to form the Next Generation Secure Memory Initiative. The five companies will be creating a content protection technology for flash memory cards such as SD cards and various storage devices.
The purpose of this technology is to protect HD content with features including unique ID technology for flash memory and robust copy protection based on public key infrastructure. The use of this protection technology will help protect various HD content applications such as HD network download, broadcast content to go, and HD Digital Copy/Managed Copy from Blu-ray Disc media. With these applications, users can enjoy HD content on a wide range of devices including Android-based smartphones and tablets, TVs and Blu-ray products.
The Next Generation Secure Memory Initiative will start preparing for licensing and promotion of its security technology and expects it to be in use by early next year.
