Video-on-Demand Solution



Apr 24, 2001, 01:00 ET from SecureMedia

    LAS VEGAS, April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, at the NAB show in Las Vegas,
 SecureMedia announced that its patented Encryptonite(TM) encryption technology
 has been licensed by DivXNetworks, the technology company that created the
 popular DivX(TM) Internet video format, to provide end-to-end security for
 DivXNetworks Video-on-Demand (VOD) system.  DivXNetworks' Open Video System
 VOD solution will integrate Encryptonite to protect the storage, distribution
 and delivery of high-quality video content over IP networks.
     "Our goal was to find a reputable and highly efficient security solution
 that would pass the strict requirements of our customers and business
 partners," said Jordan Greenhall, Co-founder and CEO of DivXNetworks, Inc.
 (www.divxnetworks.com).  "SecureMedia's Encryptonite went beyond our
 expectations, not only in providing the security technology needed to develop
 an end-to-end security system for Video-on-Demand, but also in delivering
 encryption technology that is completely transparent to users, consumes very
 little overhead, and is extremely easy to integrate."
     "DivXNetworks is a recognized technology leader working to satisfy
 consumers' growing demand for new, rich-media content, such as Video-on-
 Demand," said Jack Oswald, CEO of SecureMedia.  "We're happy to be a part of
 their innovative offering by providing the level of broadband media protection
 necessary to secure the licensing of high-quality content."
     SecureMedia's Encryptonite technology enables complete end-to-end
 protection of broadband media, from the point of origination to the point of
 consumption.  The result is: content is never "in the clear" at any point in
 the delivery chain -- not until it is delivered and decoded by an authorized
 user.  SecureMedia's patented Encryptonite encryption technology was designed
 specifically for IP broadband media and represents a fundamental engineering
 breakthrough in public key encryption technology.  It combines well-respected,
 public key cryptographic mathematics with common symmetric encryption
 algorithms to provide an extremely strong, very fast, highly scalable and
 reusable encryption system.
