Marlin DRM Announces Solution for Enhanced Content Protection (ECP) for UHD Content

SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Marlin DRM, the only open standard Digital Rights Management (DRM), today announced a compliance and robustness (C&R) framework for enhanced content protection (ECP) for ultra-high-definition (UHD) content. This solution conforms with requirements set by the content industry.

The new C&R rules for ECP define security and content protection requirements for Marlin-based products that distribute UHD, 4K, and early-release window audiovisual content. The rules apply to chipset manufacturers (and integrators of content protection logic into hardware-based trusted execution environments), smart TVs, set top box manufacturers that integrate high security chipsets, and service providers. Marlin DRM’s self-certification process has been expanded to accommodate services, device manufacturers, and chipset manufacturers to comply with these new C&R rules around ECP.

“Marlin DRM has always led the way in video protection and management,” said Hide Hosokawa, Co-President of the MTMO. “These new C&R rules allow adopters of the world’s leading open standard for DRM to deploy and monetize the highest quality content in compliance with Hollywood’s most exacting security requirements.”
