As we know from recent events, companies are warming up more and more each day when it comes allowing media content to be played back on mobile devices. We've seen Netflix and Hulu launch on a few devices, Crackle return to the Android Market and BitBop offer up streaming TV shows but one longstanding concern for media content owners has been security of their content on devices and the quality of playback. Texas Instruments however, has been hard at work on their OMAP 4 platform and as such have just been certified by Netflix for their use of the high-performance, low-power, secure platform.
"This Netflix certification represents another milestone in our successful work with the TI team," said Olivier Leger, VP and General Manager, Trusted Logic. "We are thrilled to bring the most advanced features – including premium content distribution and streaming – to various consumer products in a safe, secure manner. Netflix users and stakeholders will benefit from our proven technology, now optimized for TI's M-Shield, and the best possible experiences on their mobile devices."
So what does all this mean for end users? Well, you're going to start seeing full HD 1080p, 30fps playback available on any Android device making use of the OMAP 4 platform and it will do so without killing your battery. Plus, it has the support of Netflix for being a safe, secure environment that supports DRM content without impeding end users.
