Intel Sandy Bridge will prevent you from copying DRM-protected streams

Posted on Tuesday, January 04 2011 @ 16:26:19 CET by

TechNewsWorld reports Intel has integrated a hardware-based security layer into its new Sandy Bridge processors. This new DRM technology will be used by content provider to prevent people from copying streaming videos:
One particularly interesting reported detail regarding the processors is that Intel will incorporate hardware-level copy protection technologies.

The technology it'll use is apparently called "Insider." It will incorporate an end-to-end protection layer and a management feature to unlock high-definition movies downloaded from online streaming services or off DVDs.

"These are features built into the hardware, so if you're a Netflix (Nasdaq: NFLX) or a Warner Bros., you can program a time clock into a movie or code it so it's good for only a certain number of days after the consumer downloads it," In-Stat's McGregor pointed out. "It's all related to DRM."
