BARCELONA -- Discretix, the leading provider of embedded security and DRM solutions for mobile devices and flash memory, and Opera Software (OSE: OPERA) announced today that Opera has partnered with the industry-leading Discretix Multi-Scheme Digital Rights Management (DRM) security client for integration with the Opera Mobile browser. Using Discretix premium DRM solution, Opera will provide mobile phone manufacturers with support for the broadest range of major DRM schemes, including OMA DRM v2.0, Microsoft WM-DRM 10 and CPRM.
DRM is a key enabling technology for Web browsers today, allowing copyright-protected content to be easily and legally accessed. The Opera browser, renowned for its speed, small memory footprint and exceptional standards-compliance, will offer a state-of-the art DRM solution. In addition to support for all major DRM schemes, along with the flexibility to accommodate new schemes as they become available, Discretix Multi-Scheme DRM also integrates easily into all the most common mobile phone operating systems.
"By pre-integrating this reliable and efficient DRM technology, Opera helps device OEMs lower their development risk, shorten their time-to-market, lower their overall development costs, and improve the security of the commercial content carried on their products." said Bjarte Vosseteig, Director Product Management Mobile of Opera Software.
