Toshiba today launched new microSDHC Memory Cards based on SeeQVault technology, which has been designed to protect premium high definition content.
SeeQVault is a content protection technology developed by Toshiba, Panasonic, Samsung Electronics and Sony, that is licensed through NSM Initiatives LLC. The technology applies bidirectional authentication with a unique identifier and public key infrastructure to give users a secure environment for storing and distributing high definition content. The technology can be integrated into flash memory cards and the devices that run them. Earlier this week NSM Initiatives LLC announced
it had begun licensing it to device manufacturers and content service providers.
The SeeQVault card can be used for playback of content from a smart phone, tablet or TV with a high level of security.
Toshiba's initial product line-up includes 16GB (40MB/s read, 20MB/s write) and 32GB (40MB/s read, 20MB/s write) capacities compatible with the Ultra High Speed Bus I and the U1 UHS speed class. Toshiba will begin sampling in March and will move to commercialization by the end of 2013.
