CyberLink Corp., the world’s leading consumer multimedia software company, today announced support for the latest standard in Digital Rights Management—SeeQVault. A technology developed by leading equipment manufacturers Panasonic, Sony, Samsung and Toshiba, SeeQVault enables the playback and transfer of HD/4K UHD content, whether purchased, rented or recorded, across in-home devices in a secure environment.

With SeeQVault users can record TV programs on their PVR, and then transfer them to a PC via USB or SD card for playback using a SeeQVault-supported media player. This helps to address a missing link in the current HD/4K UHD consumer entertainment ecosystem, allowing users to side-step current impediments to playback such as device capacity, data caps, broadband access and bandwidth restrictions, among others.

“Support for SeeQVault technology opens up a whole new spectrum of playback options for users who record DRM-protected content from their TVs,” said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink. “SeeQVault not only moves large HD/4K UHD files from recording devices to PCs much more conveniently, but it does so in an extremely flexible and secure environment.”
