SanDisk introduced solution for content distribution

9:36 AM Edited by Blony

SanDisk Corporation has introduced an external memory card that can only be used by some phones and some operators, depending on the schedule that you have made to each. Something that marks the beginning of a new era in the distribution of content from mobile operators.

In a demonstration with the new LG KC910 Renoir have shown that the content preloaded on the memory cards can only be used on phones approved and not in others. This service of content protection is possible because the memory cards authenticate the credentials of the user through the SIM card of the mobile-OMA SmartCard WebServer.

Operators can now freely distribute and download content preloaded on removable memory cards, while restricting the accessibility of such content only to subscribers to its services. This makes it possible to offer licensed content without the annoying intrusion of DRMs.
