4K Content DRM for Streaming and Storage

4K content is no longer a fad, and content protection is of utmost importance for content studios. Security guidelines for 4K content revolve around hardware integration, and content protection systems must support these guidelines for content to be made available over the systems. End-to-end system security, with SoC integration and security from data pipeline to user device is necessary. Forensic watermarking, Conditional Access, and DRM measures should aim to meet these guidelines as soon as possible to ensure availability as 4K content becomes more widespread.
