Seagate, a Scotts Valley, Calif.-based manufacturer of portable hard drives, has joined the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE), the cross-industry consortium of content and technology companies behind UltraViolet.
Mark Teitell, GM and executive director for DECE, said Seagate will offer a unique perspective for UltraViolet as it enters its second year.
“With UltraViolet, consumers enjoy the flexibility and security of cloud-based entertainment rights combined with the choice-expanding benefits of a widely honored industry standard,” he said. “As a DECE member, Seagate's expertise and perspective on cloud solutions and storage devices will help the organization continue to evolve these benefits.”
Scott Horn, VP of marketing for Seagate, added: “Digital distribution beyond DVDs and Blu-ray Discs is not only the way of the future, it is the present; and we know that storage is key to this ongoing transition. Seagate sees UltraViolet as a leader in bringing content to consumers in this new digital age, and we are excited to [help] them make their vision a reality.”
