New 4K movies hardware DRM for Windows 10

4k-1

Who wants to continue to play 4K blockbusters, requires, and according to the Microsoft PlayReady 3.0 called hardware DRM. Windows 10 and encrypted graphics unit should be mandatory. AMD, Intel, NVidia and Qualcomm support the spoon-feeding.

From the public largely ignored Microsoft has a new Digital Rights Management called PlayReady 3.0 presented at the WinHEC Summit in March 2015 (.pptx). This is not a copy, but a content protection similar to the long cracked, first HDCP for Blu-ray movies. Microsoft’s new DRM is the favored solution for Hollywood studios, in order to protect their 4K content with PlayReady 3.0. Without them, the movie does not start or only with low quality.

PlayReady 3.0 is part of Windows 10, according to protected material presupposes the new Microsoft operating system. Also imperative is a security processor or a Trust Zone be, should run on, or a Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) including keys. This can most current chips from AMD, ARM and Intel. Thus PlayReady should run on PCs, laptops, tablets and smartphones – it is the battery charge not. In addition to the processor, the graphics unit compressed and uncompressed data and its output must encrypt.

The video for the new DRM breaks just before Microsoft Nishanth Lingamneni responds to details of PlayReady 3.0, from. However, he mentions a computer restriction by the DRM – what should fold on the other hand, is a transfer via Miracast. For owners of older systems without Windows 10 and matching hardware PlayReady expected 3.0 mean that they can play no 4K material of certain Hollywood studios.

Remains to be seen whether, for example streaming providers such as Amazon and Netflix support the new DRM from summer 2015 or at least set initially to existing DRM technologies. Besides PlayReady 3.0 industry has opted for HDCP 2.2, which is part of the HDMI 2.0 specification.

hololens-1

HoloLens, a mystery technology Microsoft’s latest released. Few people have seen it come true charm, and almost everyone is looking forward to HoloLens really come. Unlike Oculus Rift, HoloLens can do is not to bring you to a virtual world, where fighting with orcs or dragon. It can do is to bring the orcs or dragon to your world, can be in your bedroom or living room. Combining virtual world and real world is the biggest bright spot for HoloLens.

In the January Microsoft Win10 conference, the first time we saw HoloLens, in addition to the exciting also has a lot of questions exist. Recently, in the HoloLens official website, Microsoft answered some common problems that users interested.

Microsoft explains what is the hologram, why do people need a hologram (because it’s cool, Duang, is the special!) And how HoloLens works, as well as the Windows 10 and the hologram contact etc..

What is a hologram?

The hologram is you can see objects through the naked eye (after wearing HoloLens glasses), and it is the same we see in the real world objects the difference is the hologram is generated by the light. Hologram can be 2 d, for example, like a piece of paper or television screen, also can be three-dimensional, like other physical objects. Using HoloLens watch the hologram will be quite realistic, through gestures, eye, voice interaction with, you can move it, change its shape, and it will change with the user interactions or physical changes in the environment.

HoloLens hologram generation story

Microsoft also explained the principle of HoloLens to generate multidimensional image, and how to bring the hologram in real environment. All of these work are by the new holographic processing unit (HPU) to complete.

Microsoft HoloLens equipped with transparent lenses, holographic high-definition camera, stereo sound technology environment technology, so you can see and hear the holographic objects like from the environment around you. The built-in sensors and new advanced holographic processing unit (HPU) can sense the environment around you, Microsoft HoloLens can real-time processing huge amounts of data from sensors.

Windows 10 and the hologram association

We see in the Windows 10 news conference, the HoloLens will run a separate Win10 system. Thanks to eyeball, gestures, voice, and the environment/scene perception API, makes Windows 10 become the first supported holographic computing operating system. In Windows 10, hologram will be generated by the general application, all the general application can run in a way that is the hologram. There is no doubt that Windows 10 hologram will bring us a new way of communication, creation and exploration.

Windows 10 Will be released at the end of July?

windows 10 released time rumors

What is the exactly time that Windows 10 released? Microsoft previously only vaguely said that this summer, May Microsoft hasn’t been decided, or don’t want to tell you, but Microsoft got himself, but can’t hold his teammates.

AMD CEO Lisa Su recently in the quarterly meeting said such a words: “we should also consider is that Windows 10 will be released at the end of July, and we are observing the effect on the back-to-school season market.”

Interestingly, AMD seems to be used to reveal the secret of Microsoft before, had questions about DX12 operating system support, for example, AMD is sold says it does not support Windows 7, then had to hurriedly rumors, the results confirmed that it was so happened – DX12 will be Windows 10 patents.

Now, AMD big boss to do so in such a formal occasion, credibility is very high, but it is still questionable, because we don’t know here are distributed to manufacturers of RTM release time, or the new system and the hardware overall time to market. The latter possibility is larger.

The spread of the argument is, Windows 10 RTM version release will be completed in June, comprehensive public in August. AMD’s statement was consistent with the basic and Microsoft seems to speed up again – the earliest said late summer or early autumn will be released.
