ARM Holdings is one of the leading companies in producing processors for smartphones. One of the company’s policies is to keep technology away from copyright violation, and the new Mali-V500 video chip does exactly that.
A few days ago, ARM announced its new series of products, including the new video processor developed at the demand of Hollywood studios. The processor prevents HD videos from being pirated due to its embedded DRM structure.
Although the entertainment industry has been reluctant to embrace mobile devices, such processor could really change their hearts. Indeed, in attempt to protect their multi-billion dollar investments, entertainment industry and copyright owners demand hardware-backed security across all devices able to play their premium content. In other words, mobile and other consumer embedded devices have to support hardware-backed protection of content from download to display.
Now Hollywood can be sure that the new video processor offers cutting-edge security, at the same time being capable of supporting a wide range of DRM solutions. The manufacturer points out that in order to meet the stringent security requirements of film studios, Mali-V500 has been designed to efficiently support ARM TrustZone and associated media playback use cases efficiently.
Industry experts agree that Hollywood movie studios and such largest content distributors as Netflix and others are currently demanding for premium or early window content to be protected not only by DRM, but also by the hardware, all the way from download through to display. Although it is still unclear when the Mali-V500 will be implemented into smartphones, the industry can already know all its features.

|Well, when "Hollywood studios" ordered it they should buy it - i wont, no matter how much some (bought) "Press" praise it as "state of the art" or alike ("state of the art"-scam fitting better imho).|
New XBox is backing off on their "protection"-scam now thanks to PS4 and lets hope there will always be some competitor with an alternative instead of cartels like this build from "Hollywood studios" + "Hardware manufacturers".
|+1 to you #1|

|I look forward to hearing about some kid bypassing the DRM and passing on the hack to everyone. Hollywood will NEVER win. Why do they keep on trying? Its almost like they want to waste money and resources....|

|What's to stop somebody downloading to their PC then converting to a different (DRM-free) format, then transferring to their portable device?|
There's many OTHER methods as well, but that's probably the easiest.
Just remember, there's ALWAYS a loophole, you just have to know where to look!
|Lol, this will only hinder the average back woods hillbilly. Those of us who know how to use the internet will always find a way around this. There's only so many ways they can code stuff like this into a specific file type. When all attempts have been exhausted, we win without contest. A credible ripper with any intelligence won't rip a bad file and convert to an contaminated AVI or MP4 file. There's only so many changes you can make to an original DVD before DVD players don't recognize it any longer. This alone will make credible movie companies lose business. Let's say they make an audio coding in the DVD that you can't hear, Cinavia already did it, we followed suit and removed the software. Encoded in the hardware? We will soon have apps that intercept the rendering of it. Even for someone that utilizes EVERYTHING on the net and pays for NOTHING, I would pay for a program that does exactly that rather than pay the film industry a dime!|
|lol I agree wit most of ya|
|lol I agree wit most of ya|
|Crap! If AT&T wants to fix my phone, they have to pry it from my cold dead hands after chiseling open my coffin, made completely of 99.9999999999% pure diamond!|

|lolz Got milk?|
|I agree with number 7 for every new hardware there's a new software and them people that sit behind a pc all day that love to design programs and mess with codes will have a field day with this drm...besides if my new phone wouldn't do what i wanted it to do id buy and older phone.|
|DRM in all forms does nothing but hurt the paying customer. It never works as intended, and does nothing to stop piracy.|
Sony is one of the largest offenders, and my favorite example. My Sony Blu-Ray player BDP-S360 refuses to play almost all new movies if I try to watch them on release dates. It takes them almost a month to release new firmware to support new movies. The worst part is this happens mostly on Sony Pictures movies. If I were a regular customer, I would have to wait to watch my movies. This is why I no longer buy Sony products...
Sony has always used their hand in the electronics industry to "protect" its movie industry. Sony was the company that used to lower the power of the DVD player laser to prevent them from reading DVD-R and DVD-RW media when it first started to get popular. Obviously now they do not do that being there are so many people using recordable media for home movies, and other legitimate reasons.
Companies like ARM who force this crap on people will undoubtedly encourage many to buy deviced built around different chips. This at least until it's cracked and as useless as the rest.
|no anyone can stop Piracy ....Long Live Piracy|
|i download off pc then convert and transfer to my phone easy lol|
|i agree with comment 11, got milk: hilarious! but at&t will still keep their filthy hands off my iphone||
