Protected HD content is not transferrable to external memories; users need to play the content on the equipment that records it or downconverts it to SD quality. SeeQVault™ provides a solution for compliant equipment, and allows HD content to be viewed on multiple platforms. This is achieved with a secure ID assigned to each SeeQVault™-compliant flash memory, such as SD memory cards.

“TC358782XBG” brings SeeQVault’s™ features to portable storage devices, such as USB HDDs. This allows secure transfers of HD content, and enables users to play HD content on multiple SeeQVault™-compatible equipment.

Applications
SeeQVault™-enabled USB storages, such as mobile HDDs and SD card adaptors
