Pirating. Major motion picture studios are worried about pirating. This in turn discourages them from making premium 1080p content available via streaming. But Intel recently announced a solution that will allow studios to be able to provide content, without the concern of pirating. The solution? Insider.
Early this month, Intel announced that it was building a hardware security layer in its next-generation Core chips to prevent streaming movies from being copied. The chip feature, called Insider, includes an end-to-end protection layer and management feature to unlock high-definition movies from online streaming services, said Karen Regis, consumer Consumer Client Marketing Manager at Intel.
Insider is a part of Intel’s enhanced graphics offerings in its next-generation Core processors, which will were officially released on Jan. 5, just before CES in Las Vegas.
Intel has partnered with Warner Bros. Digital Distribution, which will make 300 high-definition titles available from its WB Shop or Best Buy’s CinemaNow service. The movies will be able to be played only on systems with the next-generation core processors. Intel is also in the midst of partnering with more studios and announcements will be made in the upcoming months.
