  • BluFocus to Manage All Aspects of DECE CVP for UltraViolet to Help Licensees Ensure Their Implementations Are Compliant

LOS ANGELES, CA — BluFocus Inc., a leading testing and certification company for the entertainment industry, announced today it has entered into an agreement with Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE) LLC, to act as the administrator for the UltraViolet Compliance Verification Program (CVP). The selection of BluFocus further builds on the capabilities of an elite team of well-respected companies with device, physical media and digital distribution testing skills and experience who are bringing their expertise to the UltraViolet ecosystem.

DECE is responsible for the design, development and operation of UltraViolet, a digital rights authentication and cloud-based ecosystem that allows consumers unprecedented access to their home entertainment collections.

BluFocus’ role will be to manage, test and qualify Licensee’s implementations based upon these sets of documented tests and test procedures.

“We are honored and excited to have this arrangement with the DECE,” said Paulette Pantoja, BluFocus CEO and Founder. “Our company has been supporting home entertainment products and technologies through our testing and certification services for over half a decade. This addition is a natural progression for our company as we continue to help qualify home entertainment products and technologies so users can have a good and consistent experience.”

“BluFocus has been a valued Member of the DECE consortium that designed UltraViolet, as well as a source of testing and QA support for companies implementing UltraViolet,” said Mark Teitell, DECE’s GM. “I look forward to their role in the UltraViolet ecosystem expanding now, to include the key activities of administering the UltraViolet Compliance Verification Program.”
