“Consumers want to view and share HD movies and TV shows from a myriad of tablets, smart phones, and car infotainment systems, so safeguarding content with hardware-enforced security is more important than ever and Hollywood studios are insisting on it,” said Vijay Dube, President and CEO of Elliptic Technologies. “We’re thrilled to collaborate with our partner Trustonic, to provide this complete, secure solution integrated with their ‹t-base TEE and enabling our customers a faster time to market with more value added services.”
Jon Geater, CTO of Trustonic commented: “Elliptic’s tVault PLUS leverages our ‹t-base TEE to provide device manufacturers with a hardware-isolated space that service providers can harness to provide secure content delivery from the studio to the consumer. ‹t-base is widely used in consumer products and recognized by major studios as a means to protect and enable premium content services. It further provides a platform upon which to easily deploy new services and premium content without having to pre-integrate with device makers, opening the potential for more people to enjoy more content in more places more easily.”

The tVault PLUS framework is easily portable across Rich OS and Secure OS and has been integrated with a variety of commercial and proprietary operating systems. tVault content protection has been adopted in leading mobile and connected home entertainment devices using TEE-based SoC platforms for providing robust DTCP-IP and HDCP 2 link protection. These field-proven solutions are embedded by top manufacturers in high-volume, mobile and home media applications including smartphones, tablets, HDTVs, smart TVs, STBs and wireless media sharing devices.
