Discretix Multi-Scheme DRM Secures Motorola's MOTO Z8 Mobile Handset

Discretix, the leading provider of embedded security and DRM solutions for mobile devices and flash memory, announced that its Multi-Scheme Digital Rights Management (DRM) Client will provide multimedia content security for Motorola’s latest mobile handset, the MOTO Z8. The MOTO Z8, now available with select wireless operators in Europe, is a remarkable combination of communications and entertainment, incorporating crystal clear video playback and hi-fi audio quality into a groundbreaking “kick slider” form factor, featuring a graceful mechanism that achieves a “fit-to-face” profile by gliding open in a curve to match the contour of your face.

Discretix’ Multi-Scheme DRM Client, integrated into the Symbian operating system and UIQ Application Framework, is considered to be one of the most advanced embedded DRM solutions on the market today. A key enabling technology for mobile content distribution, DRM allows copyright-protected content to be easily and legally accessed. The MOTO Z8′s support for a wide range of multimedia capabilities represented a need for state-of-the-art DRM. Discretix’ Multi-Scheme DRM Client future-proofs OEMs against new DRM schemes that may become available and is compliant with OMTP requirements for hardware-based security.

“Motorola’s MOTORIZR Z8 represents a breakthrough in multimedia use on several fronts, from its incredible playback capabilities to its wide range of content distribution options,” said Edo Ganot, EVP sales and business development of Discretix. “The inclusion of our Multi-Scheme DRM Client into the MOTO Z8 device demonstrates the cutting-edge capabilities that our platform supports.”
