4K security - The Impact of MovieLabs’ Enhanced Content Protection Specification on Pay-TV Service Providers

With the advent of Enhanced Content like 4K Ultra HD and High-Dynamic Range (HDR), MovieLabs, the joint technology venture of the major Hollywood studios, has aimed to address the rampant piracy of 1080 HD content with a comprehensive set of new security recommendations. Though posed as “recommendations,” these measures will be required by studios for pay-TV service providers and other licensees to have access to Enhanced Content.

At the same time, other types of premium content like live sports –not of particular interest to major studios– are under attack, threatening the huge investments made by many service providers. This content benefits equally from many of the recommendations made under MovieLabs’ specification.
