CDSA Issues First Flash Memory Accreditation6 Apr, 2010 By: Erik Gruenwedel
The Content Delivery and Storage Association (formerly IRMA) April 6 said Kingston Technology Company, Inc., became the first Flash memory entertainment provider to receive its Content Protection and Security Standard (CPSS) accreditation.
The CPSS was developed by a consortium of antipiracy and security experts to address the evolving needs of today’s physical and digital content delivery supply chains. The evolution of digital distribution of home entertainment mandates appropriate safeguards to protect intellectual property and related assets.
Kingston recently released Sony Pictures Home Entertainment concert documentary Michael Jackson's This Is It on a special limited-edition, serial-numbered Kingston USB Flash drive.
The Fountain Valley, Calif.-based company also worked with Paramount Digital Entertainment to release Star Trek and both Transformers films on its USB Flash drives.
“Kingston’s achievement of CDSA content protection and security accreditation reflects the flexibility of our program to address the changing ways that content will be delivered to consumers in the years ahead,” said Linda Dyson, worldwide director of CDSA’s antipiracy and compliance programs.
